  • Volunteers - New FBI Process


    *Attention Volunteers*

    IMPORTANT: Please be advised that effective at close of business November 18, 2017, Cogent will no longer be providing fingerprint services for 'new applicants'. All 'new applicants' will be required to begin a new pre-registration with the new Commonwealth supplier, MorphoTrust, on November 28, 2017. Those unable to meet this deadline will be required to restart the process with the new Commonwealth supplier, MorphoTrust. (Registration information will not be transitioned to the new supplier; any unused registration files will be purged from the Cogent System and any payments will be issued refunds by Cogent.) 

    Applicants that have been notified their prints were rejected for quality purposes will have an additional time-period to complete the reprint process with Cogent. Any 'reprint applicants' who have not completed the reprint process with Cogent within this additional time-period, will be eligible to continue the reprint process with the new supplier. Please Note, 'reprint applicants' will have a limited time-period of 90 days to obtain their reprint services without charge. Additional information regarding that process or the new solution and start date will be forthcoming from the Department of General Services.

    Applicants may visit the new supplier website at

    Above attached is the link to the instructions to begin the new process to obtain a "new" fingerprint clearance:

  • Welcome back everyone!

    The new school year has officially begun with successful Meet the Teacher events the past three evenings.  We are enthusiastic that this will be a great year!

    Our dress code continues, which has been proven to be a positive change!  The dress code has created an environment that focuses on student learning throughout the school day with fewer distractions.



    This year is all about Leadership!  We are ready to create positive relationships with students, equip them with the knowledge they will need for a productive future, have sharpened our attitude to better communicate and ready and willing to Lead!

    If you have any concerns about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please contact the teacher, school counselor or building principal.  We welcome your inquiries.

    Leadership is a choice.  Let’s all choose to be great leaders!


    Jim Zack, Superintendent of Schools



  • Vulnerability Assessment Team Surveys
    Please take a few moments to complete one of the following Vulnerability Assessment Team surveys, a component of our Safety Committee.  Please choose a survey based on your relationship with the school district.  You may complete multiple surveys if they apply to you (for example, you are both a staff member AND a parent with children enrolled in the school district), but please only complete each survey once. Your perception of the safety in our buildings is very important to us.  Any information received from these surveys will be shared with the Vulnerability Assessment Team and the Safety Committee during their meetings as they review building reports, identify the top five district safety issues, and develop recommendations for changes to the Comprehensive Safe School Plan.  Thank you in advance for the consideration given to participating in these surveys.
