Families and schools working together, because our students are worth it

Family engagement promotes equitable partnerships among schools, families, and communities to actively advance student achievement through shared commitment, decision making and responsibility.

**ATTENTION EDUCATORS! A recent change has been made to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE’s) policy regarding a student’s age of eligibility under federal IDEA. The new policy allows a student to be enrolled in school until their 22nd birthday. This may also affect young adults who exited school during the 2022-23 school term.
