Jersey Shore Area School District Performance Profile

Beginning Friday, October 4, the Pennsylvania Department of Education will make available the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile.  The profile provides academic performance information for public schools in the state.  The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:
  1. To inform the public of school performance
  2. To provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system
  3. To allow the public to compare schools across the state
  4. To give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and their needs

Registration procedures for students

Withdrawal procedures for students

When school is in session for students, parents should report to the school office where their child is enrolled to withdraw the student.  The school will have a set of procedures to follow to complete the withdrawal process.  When schools are on summer break, parents should report to the district administration building’s central registration office between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm.
