Anxiety is building in the Kane Area School District as student testing begins this week under the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).
Naturally, students are nervous about taking PSSA tests in math, reading, science and writing.
But teachers and school administrators also are feeling the tension. Thatâ€™s because the annual tests determine whether the school district and its three schools are making â€śannual yearly progress (AYP)â€ť under the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program.
