CLEARFIELD – The current school year is winding down, and the Clearfield Area School District is looking ahead to its summer programs.
Next week, the school board will consider:
- a credit recovery program, from June 10-21, at the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School.
- offering the driver ed car training.
- Beacon Light’s summer program, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., June 17 through July 25 at the Clearfield Area Elementary School. When asked, Superintendent Terry Struble stated the mental health services provider continues offering therapy, peer and relationship skills building programs, etc., over the summer. He believed the program had a participation rate of 70 to 80 percent or possibly higher, and noted there isn’t any costs involved for the district.
- offering the summer food services program at both the junior-senior high and elementary schools, beginning June 10.
- an extended school year from July 8-19 at both the junior-senior high and elementary schools.
In other business, the board will consider a facility use request from Principal and Football Coach Tim Janocko for Bison Stadium and its concessions for the Lezzer Lumber Classic.
The game is scheduled to be held June 21, and the date has been cleared with the junior-senior high school office.
The board will also consider several other personnel and field trip requests, plus a resolution to support Senate Bill 34 and House Bill 526, both of which are for school districts providing their own cyber leasing programs.
Struble said the legislation would support school districts providing their own cyber education program by removing the financial responsibility for resident students who choose to enroll in cyber charter schools instead of the district’s program.
He said Business Administrator Sam Maney is working on pulling some numbers together to support the district’s resolution specifically.
Both Struble and Maney said so far as their knowledge, local state officials aren’t listed as co-sponsors/authors of this legislation, though Struble indicated it was a “bipartisan issue.”
