MUASD COVID-19 Update for November 18, 2020

We regret to inform you that the Mount Union Area School District will be moving to remote instruction beginning Thursday, November 19, 2020 and will remain on remote through Friday, December 4, 2020. MUASD will return to face-to-face learning on Monday, December 7, 2020, provided cases do not continue to increase in our local area and school district.  It is our hope that by remaining on remote until December 7 that anyone who may have contracted Coronavirus during family gatherings will be displaying symptoms by that time and will not unknowingly bring it in to our buildings. 

We continue to work with the Pennsylvania Department of Health regarding these cases. We also continue to clean and sanitize daily. We kindly request the help of our parents in ensuring that you are completing the symptom checker before your child leaves for school. Students should not be sent to school when they are ill.

We also ask parents to ensure their child has a face covering. Please communicate with your child’s school if anyone is your home is being tested. Also, all persons who are being tested or live with someone who is being tested need to stay home while awaiting results. Please alert of positive results immediately so that we can act quickly to quarantine close contacts and clean affected areas. We are all in this together and it take all of us to provide the best environment for students and staff.

Life After High School

Every year the Huntingdon, Mifflin, Juniata Employment Coalition holds a Transition Fair for students with special needs. This year, due to COVID-19, they have to hold the fair virtually. The fair will have presentations from Post-Secondary Schools and Service Providers on various days, beginning on October 20th!

Virtual Transition Fair

The site also contains information about many different service providers in our area that could help your child with their transition needs to post-secondary life. This site will be up all year so it will be a great resource for you and your child whenever you may have questions about available services. 

Below is a flyer that advertises the different presentations that will be occurring

About Us

The Mount Union Area School District continues to host a Pre K program in partnership with Huntingdon County Child and Adult Development Corporation.  This initiative continues to be supported through Pre K Counts, PA Pre K Counts, and Head Start Supplemental, in addition to Title 1 funding for the 2019-2020 school year.

The planned course of instruction and assessment programs are matched to the state requirements under Chapter 4 for all our programs.  The state and district benchmarks and/or local assessments have been developed or adopted to address the Pennsylvania Academic Standards.  Monitoring of the program and data analysis of the results will be completed at each grade level according to descriptions outlined in our assessment action plan.c

There are a multitude of instructional resources available to teachers and students throughout the district.  Some of these curricular resources include McGraw and Hill’s Open Court Reading series, new for the 2019-2020 school year in grades K-5.  StudySync will be introduced in ELA classrooms within our newly configured 6-8 Junior High School.  Additionally, the district will be piloting Pearson’s Elevate Science program in grades K-6.  The district will continue to utilize Pearson’s enVision Math series for the fourth consecutive year in grades K-8.

The district has begun the process of mapping all of its curriculum through the utilization of CHALK.  This platform allows for collaboration across grade levels, content areas, and from building to building.  Additionally, with greater transparency and cohesion within specific courses, the district hopes to create a more consistent educational experience for all its students.

The district participates with after school tutoring through the 21st Century Grant.  An advisor/advisee program is also in place to assist students with meeting graduation requirements.  All students, both special and regular education have equal access appropriate curricular programming that meets their individual needs.  The district has utilized data from DIBELS, PSSA, Keystone and CDT testing, and content specific benchmark testing to appropriately identify and meet student needs.  Teachers are able to monitor progress in various areas and chart progress, mastery, and areas targeted for further interventions.  By tailoring learning to individual needs, students are able to realize success and growth.  We are “Proactive for Students!”
