iPad Information

All DR students are keeping their iPads and chargers over the summer. Please keep them safe and check back on the DR site for updated iPad information.

In an effort to identify these gaps, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and Penn State Extension have teamed up to conduct a short survey.  The data collected will greatly assist our schools with obtaining local, state, and federal broadband funding to provide additional resources to our students and families.

District-Wide School Climate Survey

The District is working with the National Center for School Climate to conduct a district-wide school climate survey.  We are asking parents to take a 20-minute survey between now and June 25, 2021; students and staff will be asked to take a similar survey.  The survey is designed to assess perceptions of school climate, including feelings of safety, relationships, the learning environment, communication with the school, and more.
