The formative years. It seems like such an overly simplified way to describe a child’s K-12 education.

As an educator and leader, I have come to see with my own eyes that there’s much that happens during the many years we are preparing students. We start building a student’s educational foundation with vital rudimentary skills and finish with some of the most advanced opportunities that put our students on a clear path to success. In between, there are many engagement opportunities through activities, athletics, clubs and social events.

So much of the fabric of who our students and graduates are today is absolutely based on the influences they experience while in our classrooms, hallways and on our fields. Post high school educational institutions and workforce experiences certainly shape a student based on an academic major or specific interest; but a student’s future truly starts when they first set foot in our schools.

Our mission is to assist each of them as they discover the gifts and talents they possess, and then feed their desire to reach the next level. All of us work to steer students to a higher level of learning. It is our responsibility to reach children at this level, engaging them and igniting a spark as they move through the grades and schools that lead to their graduation, and as they plan for their next steps.

We take very seriously our role in teaching and reaching students while they are with us. In these pages are the results of our efforts. I have found there are the coveted times when students or graduates thank us, but we aren’t in the profession for the accolades. We choose to do it because we are drawn to helping children and because we know The Future Starts Here.

I’m proud and honored to be part of this district and to be your leader as we review the 2016-17 school year and strive to complete a successful 2017-18 school year.

Sincerely,

Dr. Tracy Vitale
Superintendent of Schools

To learn more about each award, click on the individual ribbon.

Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll

Seneca Valley School District was one of 433 school districts in the U.S. and Canada to be honored by the College Board with placement on the 7th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. To be included on the 7th Annual Honor Roll, Seneca Valley School District had to, since 2014, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching the goals demonstrates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.

Seneca Valley School District is committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds. Inclusion on the 7th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2014 to 2016, looking across 37 AP Exams, including world language and culture.

Niche

Seneca Valley routinely makes the “Best of…” lists as posted by Niche.com, best school districts in Pennsylvania, best place to teach, best elementary schools and more.

Seneca Valley Middle School received this honor as a second PA STW redesignation after receiving the initial recognition six years ago. The first redesignation was awarded in 2014.

State leaders selected each school for its academic excellence, its responsiveness to the needs and interests of young adolescents, and its commitment to helping all students achieve at high levels.

Haine Elementary also met measurable attendance objectives as outlined in the awards program.

Title I is a federally funded program that supports schools with high poverty levels who meet state performance standards. Haine Elementary qualifies for Title I targeted support, which allows specific children in grades kindergarten through third grade the opportunity to receive this intervention program. Title I instruction is delivered in a small group setting in addition to regular classroom instruction.

National RAMP

Evans City Elementary School has been named a national American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs.

Only 650 schools have been designated as RAMP since the program’s inception in 2004.

Evans City Elementary School Counselor Kayla Snyder led the application process and was recognized by staff during an awards celebration at the school that recognized her efforts to help students. RAMP applications are reviewed once a year by a panel of school counseling professionals, who assess a school counseling program in 12 different areas of program expertise.

Special Education

Not your ordinary cup of joe

Raider Roast, the senior high school coffee shop run by exceptional students in grades 9-12, had its grand opening on Feb. 9, 2017 and it was a tremendous success!

The goal is for students to develop and enhance vocational skills in order to obtain and maintain competitive employment in the local community.

Just as students would do outside of school, all employees must go through an interview process to work in the shop. Positions in the coffee shop include cashier, barista, prep, and customer service. Current operating hours are 7:34 - 10:45 a.m. There are 16 students who work each day with a total of 51 students that rotate through the schedule each week.

“It’s not just a coffee shop, it is so much more for them,” said Jess Pyle, Seneca Valley Transition Coordinator.

The goal is to take part in a supported learning experience so students can gain skills to take into the community. Not only do students improve their vocational training skills, their social skills are also enhanced through interaction with their peers.

Special Education

The Seneca Valley School District’s Special Education Department is committed to meeting the needs of students with disabilities and helping them reach their potential. The Seneca Valley School District offers a continuum of services and placement options to meet the needs of each student. Services include but are not limited to:

Life Skills Support Emotional Support Learning Support Autistic Support Speech and Language Support

In addition, services for eligible students may also be provided by Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV (MIU-IV). Services provided by MIU-IV may be provided in the district by itinerant MIU-IV staff or in multi-district programs. Multi-district programs include: Deaf/Hard of Hearing Support, Blind-Visually Impaired Support, Life Skills Support, Autistic Support, Speech/Language Support and Multiple Disabilities Support.

2016-17 Special Education Programs included the following:

  • Community based vocation training
  • On-the-job training
  • On-campus vocational training (See one example of this in “Not your ordinary cup of joe” article above)
  • Shopping
  • Banking
  • Community based travel instruction
  • Independent living room
  • Best Buddies

To read more about these program highlights, visit our Annual Report “Bonus” section at www.svsd.net/Bonus.

Gifted Education

If a student demonstrates a potential need for gifted services, a multidisciplinary evaluation is conducted to determine if the child is in need of special programming. The evaluation process may be initiated by school staff or by a child’s parent, who may do so by contacting the building principal.

The amount and type of gifted support to be received by a student is determined on an individual basis annually by the child’s Gifted Individualized Education Program (GIEP) team, of which the parent is a very important member.

A fundraising arm of the Seneca Valley School District, the Seneca Valley Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging excellence and innovation in all grades of the Seneca Valley Schools. The Seneca Valley Foundation is proud to say we are providing mini-grants for STEM initiatives (STEM Fair, Women in Engineering classes & travel expenses to the Creek Connections Symposium), early literacy support (purchased leveled readers for our elementary buildings) and financial support for extracurricular activities (donations toward much needed repairs to the Natatorium).

However, there’s so much more to be done. Join us in providing “The Gift of Hope, the Promise of Excellence.” Please visit www.svsd.net/SVFoundation.

How SVF helps

Freshmen in honors biology classes at the intermediate high school had an opportunity that few high schoolers ever get to experience. They worked with a very rare and unique kit that allowed for precise gene editing in the spring of 2017.

The students conducted this laboratory investigation in both Thomas Lavelle’s and Jenifer McMurray’s classrooms.

“The CRISPR/cas9 lab is the type of laboratory investigation that generates student energy and enthusiasm,” said Mr. Lavelle. “Students want to experience the real story of science. They want to partake in meaningful investigations, not exclusively relics from bygone generations. They want to experience the thrill, energy, and wonder that comes when partaking in research at the cutting edge.”All funding for the genetic kits was provided by the Seneca Valley Foundation.

SV Girls’ Lacrosse…sings

“While covering my first girls lacrosse game for Varsity Views last evening, I took the following photo (right):

It’s a rather benign, pre-game capture. I take this photo at nearly every event; it’s part of the story of the game.

But the real story of THIS photo struck a chord with me...literally.

The girls were waiting for the National Anthem to be played. There was an apparent glitch in the booth and the music never started.

After about thirty seconds of “awkward silence,” YOUR girls - realizing the music was not forthcoming - spontaneously began singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

It was rife with missed notes and bad harmony. And it was beautiful.

This impromptu tribute to the freedoms we all enjoy was as refreshing as it was touching. In a minute and seventeen seconds, the Seneca Valley Girls Lacrosse Team wonderfully represented the embodiment of both true sportsmanship and the student athlete. They didn’t need the victory to prove that they were all winners.

Please congratulate - and, moreover - THANK the girls for me.”

- Daniel A. Tarr, photojournalist

Seneca Valley Girls’ Volleyball team after winning the 2016-17 WPIAL Title.
