Act 158 Information

Act 158 of 2018 (Act 158), signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf on October 24, 2018, provides alternatives to Pennsylvania's statewide requirement of attaining proficiency on the three end-of-course Keystone Exams (Algebra I, Literature, and Biology) for a student to achieve statewide graduation requirements. Effective with the graduating class of 2023, students have the option to demonstrate postsecondary preparedness through one of four additional pathways that more fully illustrate college, career, and community readiness.

In July, Act 55 added the following:

Act 55 of 2022 amends the Pennsylvania School Code to further assist students in meeting statewide high school graduation requirements. Effective immediately, any student may graduate via the Keystone Composite Pathway provided the student:

  • Earned a non-numeric Proficient in a Keystone Exam pursuant to Act 136 of 2020;
  • Successfully completes locally established, grade-based requirements for academic content associated with each Keystone Exam in which the student does not have a numeric or non-numeric score of Proficient/Advanced; and
  • Achieves a Keystone Composite score of 2939 or greater for two of the three Keystone Exams (calculated using the highest numerical scores attained by the student, neither of which may be Below Basic and at least one of which must be Proficient or better).

For more information, click here.


Parents and Guardians of 12th Grade Students:

All 12th grade students are required to have a second MCV vaccine (for prevention of Meningitis) on record with the High School. If you have been contacted by the school that means we do not have the information required. Please review this letter and return it to the school nurse as soon as possible.


HOPE Program at the Children's Service Center

We are excited to share information with you about a new program at the Children's Service Center. The HOPE program is designed to provide support and assistance to students and young adults who are experiencing symptoms of psychosis for the first time. Please see this brochure for more information.

Students and families can also reach out to our administration or counselors for assistance with any mental health questions or concerns.

Kids Food Pantry Available in High School

Hello Wallenpaupack,

I proudly announce our "Kids Food Pantry" here in our high school.

Kids Pantry began last November with the idea that we could make the holidays a little special for our students in need. We are still going strong thanks to the extraordinary generosity of private individuals, our amazing staff and teachers, students, our community churches and businesses.

Your donations are always welcome to keep this much needed pantry going.

Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or at (570) 226-4557 x5242.

The Kids and I Thank You,

Rosemary Musoleno Martynuk
