Parent Involvement Policies

The Yough School District welcomes and values the input and involvement of parents in their children’s education and believes it is key to improving student academic achievement and school performance.

According to Title I regulations, a school district must have a written parental involvement policy that sets the district’s expectations for parental involvement.  In addition, each Title I school must also have a parental involvement policy.  Below are links to these district-level and the building-level policies.  In addition, school-home compacts for each school can be accessed below.

Please take time to explore our website to view the many challenging academic experiences we offer and the numerous accomplishments and contributions of our students, staff, and families.


Entering any new school can be a challenging time for children; in the Yough School District our doors are always open to help assist you in any way possible.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your building administration at any time.  Your role in the learning experience is critical and your support is necessary for us to provide your child with a world-class educational opportunity. 

To begin the enrollment process, please read below for instructions and the forms.

To complete enrollment, an appointment with the district registrar is necessary to present all of the required documents and completed forms.  It will not be necessary to bring your child to this appointment.  Note: If you attend and submit your registration documents during the Spring Kindergarten Registration and Screening Day or any other registration days that might be announced, no additional appointment is needed.

In order to legally enroll your student and prior to the student’s beginning school, it is required that the following items be presented upon your enrollment visit to the Yough School District Administrative Offices:  

      Original Birth Certificate verifying proper name and as proof of birthdate

       Two Original Proofs of Current Residency

                        Examples:

tax statement   /  check stub (wage, public assistance or social security)

Please note:  If you and your family are residing with another district resident (i.e., you are “multiple occupants”) you need to establish residency by having the resident owner or lessor of the property/apartment complete the Certification of Multiple Residency form.

       Immunization Records: Vaccine Requirements

      Completed Enrollment Packet:

      If student is not residing with a biological parent, one of the following will be needed:

    For transferring students only: 

  •     The Act 26 Affidavit:  completed and notarized verifying whether the student has ever been suspended or expelled for an act regarding weapons, drugs or alcohol or for violence to persons or property. The affidavit must be notarized.
  •     Request release of information form:  used by Yough School District to request your student’s records from the previously attended school.

      The School Health Laws of Pennsylvania provide for required periodic health examinations of all
             students:

  • Physical examinations are required upon entrance to school and promotion to 6th and 11th grades.
  • Dental examinations are required upon entrance to school and promotion to 3rd and 7th grades. 

Therefore, entering kindergarten students will need these required exams.  For transferring students, when the health records received from the previous school indicate your child has not had the most recently required physical/dental exam, an exam will need to be completed. 

These examinations may be done by your family physician/dentist at your expense, or may be completed by the school physician/school dentist at the expense of the school district.

If you prefer your own physician/dentist to complete an examination as required, please take the following forms with you to the exam for the physician/dentist to complete:
Physician's Report
Dentist's Report


Thank you for your assistance in providing this required documentation. Please contact us if you have any questions, by phone 724-446-7272, x1000 or email
