  • 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!!!

Free, Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) Letter to Parents & Guardians Regarding COVID-19 Virtual Instruction

Gifted Letter to Parents & Guardians -- April 14, 2020

Special Education Plan Report for July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires Pennsylvania to ensure that the total number of students assessed in each subject using the PA SA does not exceed one percent of the total number of all students in the state assessed on the statewide assessments. Each local educational agency (LEA) must complete and submit the PASA 1.0 Percent Participation Threshold Justification to BSE if it anticipates that more than 1.0 % of its students enrolled in grades 3-8 and 11 will be assessed using the PASA. A list of LEAs who anticipate exceeding the threshold will be made publicly available on the PDE website, in accordance with 34 CFR 200.6 (c)(3) regulations. LEAs must also make the document publicly available upon request, removing any personally identifiable information. The Clairton City School District anticipates exceeding the 1.0 percent threshold for PASA participation for the 2019-20 testing cycle. The necessary justification information has been submitted to the Bureau of Special Education. Questions on the Clairton City School District participation rates should be directed to Sara Hoffman (contact information above).
