2017 PSSA Information

The 2017 PSSA testing dates have been finalized for all Sunset Valley 3rd and 4th graders. 

  • ELA (English Language Arts): Monday, April 3 – Thursday, April 6, 2017
  • Math: Monday, April 24 – Wednesday, April 26, 2017
  • Science (4th graders only): Tuesday, May 2 and Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Please be reminded that educational trips on PSSA testing days will not be excused.  It is important that students who take the PSSAs are in school and on time on all testing days.  Due to testing rules, students may not enter a testing session already in progress.  Therefore, please know that testing will begin by 9:10 a.m. on each of the days listed above.   Of course, in the event that students are absent due to illness, make-up PSSA testing time will be provided.


Please also note that “Take Your Child to Work Day” will be nationally observed on Thursday, April 27, 2017.  So that children can participate in this opportunity, no PSSA testing will occur on April 27th.  If your child will accompany you at work that day, please submit an excuse that explains the value of the day so the absence can be excused.
