Foster Care

The purpose of the district's foster care plan is to coordinate services between agencies to ensure children can remain in their  “school of origin” and to make placement decisions that are in the best interest of the student. The district actively works with multiple agencies including Cambria County Children and Youth Services, Arin IU 28 and the Pennsylvania Department of Education to make student centered decisions.  The district's goal is to provide Immediate enrollment and transfer of records.
