March 25, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians:

All school districts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are required to participate in the annual Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).  The Pennsylvania Department of Education sets the testing windows for all schools.

Franklin Regional School District intends to administer the PSSA this year as follows:


Grade Levels

Testing Dates

English Language Arts

Grades 3-8

April 13, 14, 15, 16


Grades 3-8

April 20, 21, 22


Grades 4 and 8

April 27, 28

 It is important for students to be well rested, arrive at school on time, and put forth their best effort on testing days.  The assessments provide information to our school and to parents about student achievement on grade level materials.  PSSA results are usually returned to the school district over the summer or early fall.  Your child’s individual scores will be sent home to you at that time.

Attached is information created by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to provide answers to some common questions and concerns.  Additional information regarding security with cell phones and electronic devices is also included for your review.  If you have any questions after reviewing the information, please feel free to contact your child’s building principal for more information.

We appreciate your ongoing supports of our school district and our efforts to provide your child with a quality educational experience. 


Mary Catherine Reljac

Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction
