We, the Avis Elementary School, believe:

Every student is important and possesses the potential to achieve greatness. We must educate our students in an equitable and positive learning environment that promotes a student-centered approach to teaching and learning. We further believe students will reach their highest level of achievement when mutually respectful and positive relationships are fostered and nourished among students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration.

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

Parents wishing to enroll, reenroll, or transfer their children from one elementary school to another within the district should report to the Jersey Shore Area School District Administration Building, 175 A&P Drive, Jersey Shore, PA 17740, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  A central registration office has been established for the district.  Parents wishing to withdraw a child from the Jersey Shore Area School District should report to the school where the child is currently enrolled. 

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.
