If a student scores below proficient on a Keystone Exam, that student will be provided with Keystone remediation for the corresponding exam.  This fulfills the Pennsylvania required supplemental instruction requirement.  Students may not retake a Keystone exam without participating in the school's supplemental instruction.

Students who test a second time and score below proficient on a Keystone Exam must complete a Local Assessment for the content specific area in order to graduate.
