Emerging Health Professionals/Engineering Professionals applications due soon

On Jan. 9, 10, 14 through 18, junior Salisbury High School students took Keystones Exams. These tests, established circa 2010 replace the former standardized tests known as PSSAs. Students were tested in online assessments in three main subjects; algebra 1, literature and biology. The computerized formatting of the tests gave all a challenge; weeks before the tests began, test takers were guided through a tutorial on how to locate helpful tools throughout the tests, such as the highlighter tool, line guide, calculator, and scoring guidelines for open-ended questions.

Salisbury band performs at Chick-fil-A Bowl

For many years, Salisbury's band parents have wanted to build the program and have the band perform in a venue other than local parades and football games.

Last year, Chick-fil-A contacted Salisbury's marching band director Angela Mosley about the band performing in the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, Ga. Dec. 31, 2012.

Mosley took it to the band members and parents who all agreed this would be an awesome experience for the students. The school board members also gave their approval for the overnight trip.

Students begin taking new Keystone Exams

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 by TYLER D. MARTIN in School

Students in local schools have been taking new tests this year to measure their proficiency in algebra 1, literature and biology.

The new Keystone Exams are end-of-course assessments designed to evaluate proficiency in academic content. Beginning this year, the Keystone Exams replaced the 11th grade Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests in mathematics, reading and science for purposes of satisfying No Child Left Behind and Adequate Yearly Progress requirements.
