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

Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program

The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program, which will provide free Internet to low-income families during the COVID emergency, will begin accepting enrollments on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at: https://www.getemergencybroadband.org/. The program is open to all low-income families (not just those with school-age children) as well as any family that has a student attending a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. 

Program Summary:  
EBB subsidies will be up to $50/month for Internet access, and up to $100 toward the purchase of a connected device (computer or tablet) from an EBB provider. Only one Internet subsidy is eligible per household. Only one connected device subsidy is eligible per household, and the household must contribute between $10-$50 towards the purchase price.

Participating Providers in PA:
A total of 48 Pennsylvania providers have signed up to participate!  A full list is available at:  https://www.fcc.gov/emergency-broadband-benefit-providers#Pennsylvania (note: “Fixed” means home Internet service and “Mobile” means wireless internet services).  Soon there will also be a Companies Near Me tool that will assist consumers with finding which companies are offering service in their zip code area.

Longevity of EBB:  
This is a Temporary Program. Before families apply, it is important to understand that the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program will end when the fund runs out of money or six months after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner. Participating households will need to opt-in to continue receiving broadband services from their provider after the program ends. If a household chooses to continue receiving service after the end of the EBB, they will be billed the broadband provider’s general monthly rate.

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!”
