School Performance Profile (SPP)
This fall, the Pennsylvania Department of Education plans to release a new public "PA School Performance Profile" website
ARIN School Safety Committee
Due to the rural nature of our communities and the lack of financial resources, it is imperative that school district personnel, emergency workers, law enforcement officers, firemen, and all other first responders collaborate in order to maximize the use of existing resources providing safer schools.
Savings on Workers’ Compensation
Workers' compensation is an unfortunate cost of doing business that we are all familiar with. However there are ways for school districts to lower workers' compensation premiums. By joining a local purchasing consortium and maintaining an active workplace safety committee, ARIN has been able to save significantly on workers' compensation costs.
Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness
The Armstrong-Indiana Intermediate Unit 28 (ARIN) holds the grant for the Pennsylvania's Education for the Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program. The program is one of eight regions across Pennsylvania and is also known as Region #6. The program consists of 11 counties, Armstrong, Blair, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Indiana, Jefferson and Potter, which includes 56 school districts and 20 shelters. The Regional and Site Coordinators for the Pennsylvania's Education for the Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness are based out of ARIN.
Instructional Practices for Students with Complex Support Needs in a Standard Aligned System
Federal laws and regulations require that all students, including those with the most severe
disabilities, participate in the statewide accountability process. National trends for more
rigorous content and instruction and PA's commitment to new teacher and principal evaluation
systems emphasize the need for this training today and into the future.
