- free tutoring services:
- zero period tutoring (high school)
- VIPs Tutoring Center
- Math Center (high school)
Tonya Black will continue her long and varied career with the State College Area School District as the newest State High assistant principal. Recently, the State College Area School District Board of Directors approved Black for her latest position in the district.
