DOWNINGTOWN Nearly 30 superintendents and state legislators from Southeastern Pennsylvania will learn more about the state-mandated Keystone exams in Algebra I, Biology and Language Arts at a conference at the Chester County Intermediate Unit in Downingtown Thursday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The meeting is being held to discuss the economic and fiscal impact of the new Chapter 4 regulations that went into effect on March 1 and will affect the Class of 2017. All students must pass the exams to graduate from high school. Those who do not pass will get a chance to retake the test or complete remedial work.
The test was part of the federal government's new Common Core standards.
