District News

We love to share great news and the triumphs of our students and staff with the community. We’ll also post important announcements and all the information you need to know right here.


Continuity of Education Plan

The goal of the Port Allegany School District continuity of education Plan (CEP) is to provide continuity of education for all learners of the Port Allegany School District during the time of mandated school closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Port Allegany School District has been in advanced planning to allow flexible instructional days during the 2020–2021 school year. Plan designs for remote and distance learning have been incorporated into the current school year during this closure period. The plan will begin on Monday, April 6, 2020.

Please take a moment to review our continuity of education plan for complete details.


Open Letter to the Community

After the state mandated closure of school districts announced on March 13, the district has worked continuously with our local, regional, and state partners in an attempt to provide for the community that we serve. Many of our teachers have prepared paper and online resources that families can use during this period of closure.

With the most recent guidelines by our legislature, we would like to inform everyone of our ongoing and updated plans to provide continuity of education during this time of school closure.

The Port Allegany School District will: While operating in good faith, provide the most reasonable and appropriate instruction to the students that we serve. We will use the resources available to us to continue to provide educational opportunities to all of our students.

Please take a moment to read Superintendent Gary M. Buchsen's complete letter to families for more information on our continuity of education plan.
