Military Service in PIMS

To meet the requirements of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) the
Pennsylvania Department of Education is now requiring school districts
to collect data on our student’s parents and/or guardians who are
currently an active duty member of a branch of the armed forces
(Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corp. Coast Guard). This includes those
who are on full-time Reserves or National Guard duty.

We will need to report this data beginning for the 2017-18 school year
and would ask that if you are serving as an active member of the
military you contact my office at (814)764-5111 extension 312 or e-mail
us at by Friday, September 29, 2017.

More importantly, thank you for serving our nation in the military and
for helping us to collect this data.
