School Closure Update and Guidance

Governor Wolf announced on April 9, 2020 to extend the mandated school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, this includes all extracurricular activities, sports, field trips, etc. School districts are to continue to follow the continuity of education plan focused on review and enrichment through the district’s calendar year, which is May 29th for Mount Union Area School District. Please continue to encourage your child to work as they have been the past two weeks. 

The buildings will remain closed at this time, following the state guidelines. All student materials left in the buildings prior to the closure will remain safe in those areas. The district administrative team will develop a plan in the next few weeks to collect all student materials and distribute student belongings at the beginning of May, while adhering to state guidelines to protect the health of our students and community.  We will notify parents of the distribution plan via One Call, the district website, and district Facebook page.

Information for FAFSA Filers

Please find below information from the U.S Department of Education regarding the number of FAFSA filers for your school. We are concerned that some students are not filing the FAFSA and the numbers for PA seem to indicate that this is true. Families that have filed the FAFSA but now have experienced a job loss or some other type of reduction in income, will need to reach out to the financial aid offices at their schools for guidance.

FAFSA

Information below may help remind families to file the FAFSA and to answer some of their financial aid questions.

 For questions, concerns and assistance in completing the FAFSA. Please contact Julie A Fontana at jfontana@pheaa.org or by phone 814-322-2563.

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!”
