Pearson Security Breach Information

Recently, we were made aware of a data breach involving information maintained by one of our vendors, Pearson Education. In the official letter we received from Pearson, we learned that an unauthorized third party gained access to data related to one of their products, AIMSweb 1.0. Based upon their review, Pearson believes the incident occurred on or around November 2018.  Please click More+ for additional information. More +

Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

This back-to-school season, make sure your kids have all the things they need  -- including quality health insurance. Pennsylvania’s Children’s Health Insurance Program covers all uninsured kids and teens (up to age 19). And no family makes too much money for CHIP. Coverage includes doctor visits, dental care, eye care, prescriptions, immunizations, mental health and much more.

Families who need health insurance are encouraged to apply right away. CHIP enrollment information is available by visiting http://www.CHIPcoversPAkids.com or calling 1-800-986-KIDS to apply or for more information.

Student Accident Insurance Information

The District does not carry medical insurance on students; however, it does provide parents with the opportunity to select a primary excess group insurance plan for their child. Since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and many require a deductible or co-insurance, student accident insurance can help eliminate the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses.  There are two plans available for your consideration. Please click here for more details and information on enrollment.
