PSSA Parent Information
Agora Testing Window will be ending shortly. Students across the state in grades 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th are gearing up for this designated time of testing. Agora is no different! Our students and teachers are working very hard to ensure that every student achieves the standards set out for them. Click here for the PSSA Newsletter.

This year the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has dedicated the weeks of April 9 through 27th as the window for all schools to assess their students in English Language Arts, Math and Science. Agora has established sites across the state for students to come together in a face-to-face setting with teachers as directed by PDE. Most sites will last 4 days in order to allow ample time for students to complete each assessment. Please note that not all grade levels will need to attend all four days.
FREE Health Screenings at Select PSSA Locations!
Health Screening Image Please read completely as this contains important and time-sensitive information about your child's school health requirements.
Dear Parents/Guardians,
Pennsylvania state law requires every child who attends school to have a health screening completed each year. To help meet this requirement, the Agora nursing team offers free health screenings for our students at various locations across the state, and we hope you will take advantage of this free service if we are in your area. Screenings will be held at many of the PSSA testing sites during April. Dates and locations are listed below.

Please read this letter to the end for answers to many common questions and concerns about the yearly health screenings, and for more information on how to contact us:
  • Health screenings are required by law for EVERY student EVERY year. Health screenings include height, weight, near and far vision testing, hearing testing, and a scoliosis screening for students in grades 6 and 7.
  • A health screening is different than a physical exam, but can be completed by your health care provider during a physical exam. If you choose to have your health care provider complete your student's health screening, please have them send us this information as soon as possible. Our fax numbers are 484-588-4477 and 484-588-0544. We must receive this information to document their screening for the year.
  • If your student has not had a screening this year, Agora provides them free of charge at many testing and event locations throughout the year.
  • Health screenings are non-invasive, and results are sent only to the parents or legal guardians of each student via the email address you provided upon enrollment. Student will only be asked to remove their shoes, hats, and jackets, but this is not mandatory, and we will complete the screening with these items on, if requested.
  • Health screenings take about 5 minutes to complete for each student.
  • If you receive a notification that we will be in your area offering health screenings, please come. We may not be back in your area for the remainder of the school year, so please don't wait and miss out on this free health screening opportunity.
  • If your student is not testing, they will be excused for one class session to attend the Agora health screenings. Please ask the nurses at your location for an excuse that you can submit to the attendance department. If you need to be excused for additional sessions due to travel time, please let the nurses at your location know. If you have already registered for an Agora Day Out where screenings are held, or your child is screened during a testing, you do not need an excuse.
