• 2014-15 Central Dauphin School District Title I Parent Involvement Survey
    Title I is a section of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). Part A, Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged Program, is the largest federal education program of elementary and secondary schools. Title I funds are targeted to low-income schools and districts and used to provide educational services to students who are educationally disadvantaged or at risk of failing. School districts spend much time and effort administering these funds.
    Your role is critical in helping children get better grades, improve test scores, and develop greater moral and social responsibility. Your input is the first step to improving our current programs and policies.

    As you may be aware, there have been many media reports regarding the measles virus.  Per the Center for Disease Control, (CDC), measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus.  It spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing.  Measles starts with a fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, sore throat, and is followed by a rash that spreads all over the body.

    The best way to prevent measles, per the CDC, is to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) shot.  Pennsylvania law requires immunizations for attendance at schools; however, under the law, exemptions are permitted for medical and religious reasons.

  • backpack e-Communications
    Central Dauphin School District is implementing a new program to help improve your ability to get timely communication from our school and various community groups. We feel e-Communications will provide a better way to reach out to our parents and students while reducing the amount of paper sent home. Some information may continue to come home in paper form. Copies of all information on the website will also be stored in school offices. However, we are looking to move the vast majority of the information that goes home to our web site. We recognize that some parents do not have the opportunity to reliably use our web site on a regular basis. For those families, Central Dauphin will make paper copies of relevant flyers available to your child on a weekly basis. To get paper copies, you simply need to contact the school office. A packet of papers will be gathered each week for your child to pick up at the office. We thank you for your cooperation with this new initiative.
    Please click on the "e-Communications" link at the top of the page for important information. We are in the process of building the e-Communications page, so please check back frequently for updates.
