  • School Closings/Delays:

    As you may have heard, a large water main failed on the Large Avenue side of the Clairton Education Center, sending rushing water into the building.  Many of the facilities on the elementary level of the building have been affected and are in need of repair and restoration.

    Our team, including our School Board president and superintendent, met with the Pennsylvania American Water Company and Disaster Restoration Services this morning to survey the damage and begin the clean-up and repair process.  These agencies will be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to return our building and classrooms to their previous condition.  We at Clairton will continue to work with them closely to resume in-person instruction as soon as possible.

    As it stands, our school will be closed and classes cancelled on Monday and Tuesday of this week.  Please note that our upcoming Open House event will be postponed as well.  We are asking all of our families to prepare for remote instruction for the immediate future.  To that end, we will be distributing devices on Tuesday, September 29th, to those elementary students and families that do not have them at home at this time.  

    We will be providing regular updates through our social media platforms, our website, phone dialer, and through email.  Please check them tomorrow for updates, especially with regard to the elementary device distribution and remote learning instructions.

    This year has been challenging for us all for a host of reasons.  Please know that we are committed to serving you and your family, and providing the best education possible to our students and children.  With your support, we can show the area what Clairton Strong is all about once again.  GO BEARS!!!

Employee Qualifications

Last Updated: 8/29/2019 9:02 PM

The NChild Left Behind Legislation requires that both teacher and paraprofessional are deemed “highly qualified. For teachers, this means an appropriate professional teaching certificate from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. For paraprofessionals, “highly qualified” is defined as possessing an Associate Degree or its equivalent or successful completion of a rigorous assessment.

All Clairton Teachers and Paraprofessionals, at the start of the 2018-2019 school year, are “highly qualified”. Evidence of this can be found in each classroom where the necessary credentials are placed in certificate frames for your review.

Should a situation arise when a classroom has been assigned or has been taught for four (4) or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified within the meaning of the term in section 200.56 of the Title I final Regulations (67 Fed. Reg. 71710, December 2, 2002) each parent will receive a letter from the Director of Curriculum and Federal Programs.

If you would like to see additional details concerning the “highly qualified” status of our staff, please call Mrs. Debra Maurizio, Director of Federal Programs at 412-233-9200 Ext. 1051.
