PA Alternative System of Assessment (PASA)

The Pennsylvania Alternate System of Assessment (PASA) is a statewide alternate assessment designed for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities who are unable to participate meaningfully in the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) or Keystone Exams, even with accommodations.  Participation in the PASA exam is an IEP team decision after considering all six of PASA eligibility criteria.  If you have questions regarding your child and eligibility for the PASA assessment, please contact your child’s case manager or the special education department.

Butler Area School District anticipates exceeding the 1% threshold for administration of the state alternative assessment, PASA, this year.  If you have questions about the PASA assessment, please contact Cari Boozel or Aaron Royhab in our special education department at 724-287-8721.
