“Any current junior who scores basic or below basic on any portion of the tests and is put into a remedial course will not qualify.” Raab continued.
This new change is going to hopefully force some juniors who want to be able to qualify for the program to take the tests more seriously. For those who do qualify, it can be very beneficial.
“By leaving early, I’ll be able to get a job so I can be financially secure.” junior Chassidy Burke said.
“It’s better than sitting in a study hall all day. More productivity, I guess,” senior Dylan Shearer said on why he is a part of the program.
One should keep in mind the possible consequences of not trying their absolute best in preparing for the Keystones, for not only will a student be placed in a remedial course but they will also miss out on the opportunity to make the most out of their senior year.
Early Release/Late Arrival gives students a way to get ahead in life, so taking advantage of it will benefit a student in the long run.
