The district welcomes Rebecca Michaels, our new Virtual Academy Assistant Principal, who was approved on Sept. 18. She will start in late November. Rebecca comes to the district from Mifflin County School District, where she was the assistant principal of Indian Valley Elementary Center.
When Kristin Miller announced to her first-grade students the news that Radio Park Elementary had been selected as 2023 National Blue Ribbon School, their reaction was natural. “They were like, ‘Oh, that’s awesome,’” Miller recalled. “But then they asked, ‘So, everybody gets blue ribbons?’”
Mirroring a national trend, the State College Area School District is starting the school year in need of more school bus drivers. The shortage has prompted SCASD to eliminate five bus runs through consolidation, leading to longer travel times and late arrivals in some cases.
Throughout the summer, students maintained more than 25 Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, which included livestock, equine and work experience projects. Students logged over 3,805 hours working on their SAE projects, and devoted over $25,120 to their efforts.
