Penn Hills School District


Community partnerships are an important part of our success. We offer on-site pre- and postdaycare through the YMCA and school-based therapy services through mental health agencies. Students from the Senior High School serve as mentors through Big Brothers/Big Sisters for children in Grades 3 and 4 to support their success.
Also, the District has a rich history of PTA support and parent involvement. There is an active organization in each building which works in collaboration with the administrator to engage parents in the educational process. The PTA Council of Penn Hills provides the only scholarship program of its kind, offering graduating seniors the opportunity to receive $500 scholarships, with monies for these awards obtained through business and individual donations and fundraising.
The District has been a primary participant in both community activities and events which bring the community within the schools. These include: The Martin Luther King Celebration (which is a partnership that cross religious, business, District, and community lines); Summerfest Community Day; Food Pantries; Light Up Night; Holiday Events (including Veterans Day, Memorial Day); Dr. Seuss Day; and Officer Phil Program.

The Penn Hills School District does NOT tolerate sexual harassment. Retaliation against individuals who file complaints about sexual harassment, or interference with the investigation of such complaints, is prohibited. Any student or staff member who believes he or she has been subjected to sexual harassment is encouraged to report the harassment to Eileen Navish, Title IX Compliance Officer (412-793-7000, extension 1260, or 260 Aster Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15235), who in turn will conduct a prompt investigation. Students or staff found to have engaged in sexual harassment or retaliation will be promptly disciplined and, if circumstances warrant, students may be subject to suspension or expulsion, and staff may be subject to consequences up through and including termination.

Counseling and education resources are available to students who have been sexually harassed as well as to students found to have engaged in acts of sexual harassment. At the discretion of administration, similar services will be available to staff. The Penn Hills School District encourages students, parents and District staff to work together to prevent sexual harassment.
