Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Department of Education granted assessment and accountability waivers to all 50 states in Spring 2020. Pennsylvania’s waiver establishes a cohort of all students who were enrolled in Keystone ‘trigger” courses in school year 2019-20.
