The Yough School District is proud to attach it's first ever District Newsletter "Pawsitively" Yough.  The newsletter highlights district and building level initiatives, while providing informational items on upcoming events.  We look forward to providing this newsletter three times a year, a fall edition, a winter edition, and a spring/summer edition.  Thank you for taking the time to review the exciting and "Pawsitive" things happening in the Yough School District.  Your support of our schools and programs is always appreciated.

Below is a link to an article from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette regarding the fees being waived for volunteers working with children.  The fees being waived are the Child Abuse and the Criminal Background check.  The FBI Clearance is not included in this waiver, and it is still required for volunteering in the schools.  If you already received your clearances, there is no reimbursement for the monies spent.  The fee waiver will begin on July 25.

Basic Education Funding Video (The video must be downloaded and viewed in Quicktime or Dropbox)

This video shares what Basic Education Funding is and how it assists the Yough School District. Currently there is a campaign across the state supporting the need for a fair funding formula for our schools.  The Yough School District would benefit from a new formula to support our educational programs and services.  Please view the video and see what BEF is and how it is used in our school districts.
