• Waivers
    Waivers to graduation requirements may be granted by either the chief school administrator (i.e., superintendent) or Pennsylvania Secretary of Education on a case-by-case basis for specific reasons outlined in the legislation.
    In the event that the chief school administrator is considering granting waivers for more than 10% of students in the graduating class, an action plan for approval must be submitted for approval to the Secretary of Education no later than 10 calendar days prior to graduation. The plan must identify improvements that schools will implement to each course associate with the Keystone Exam content for which the waivers are requested.
