Benchmarks for Assessing Basic Education Funding System Proposals
The East Lycoming School District is a small district with a reputation for quality; school and class sizes allow for a personal approach to instruction. An innovative curriculum challenges all students to excel as thinkers and learners. We are honored to have two National Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence winners, a nationally ranked high school and most recently a Governor’s School of Distinction Award Winner.
Our district offers ten Advanced Placement courses in our high school as well as over fifty Dual Enrollment college credits. We provide experiences in the arts in grades K through 12th and also offer STEM courses at our Junior High level. We currently have an iPad 1 to 1 initiative for all students in grades 4th through 12th. Students in grades kindergarten through third have access to multiple iPad and laptop carts. The district also provides many athletic activities, arts activities and clubs.
The district employs 11 full-time administrators, 112 teachers and 73 full-time and part-time support personnel. Special Education Services are provided by the district and by BLaST Intermediate Unit #17. Vocational and Technical training is provided through the Lycoming Career and Technical Center. The district also provides a Pre-K program that provides half-day instruction for an additional fifty students.
As the hub of our community, the district offers a wide range of Community Education Courses. Community, as well as county, residents are able to take courses ranging from yoga to volleyball and astronomy to cooking.
Strong Keystone Assessment scores, Pennsylvania State School Assessment Scores, AP Scores, ACT Scores, and SAT scores are a hallmark characteristic of the East Lycoming school district.
