SPARC Mission Statement:
The purpose of Aliquippa School District's School Wide Positive Behavior Plan is to establish clear guidelines for academic and social behavior and use discipline in a positive, supportive, logical and consistent manner to effectively teach students to show a Sense of Purpose, Accountability, Respect and Commitment in order to prepare our students to be productive citizens of society.
The Future of Our Children
The Future of Our Community
Our world is changing and our children must be able to adapt to a future of technological advances and increased globalization. The Aliquippa School District must support these needs of our students as we face increased regulations and mandates while remaining fiscally responsible.
The Aliquippa School District has completed a district-wide feasibility study conducted by Burt Hill, Inc., a Butler, PA architectural firm. Several key factors were examined including enrollment trends, age and condition of the facilities as well as current and future education needs.
The Aliquippa School District Board of Education has determined that to meet the needs of our students, the District will realign grades resulting in two buildings from the current three buildings. The new alignment will result in the Aliquippa Elementary School (formerly New Sheffield School) hosting grades K-6. The current middle school will become the Aliquippa Jr.-Sr. High School hosting grades 7-12. The high school, which was built in 1924, will be demolished. A public meeting will be held in the near future to present the plans.
The reduction to two buildings addresses the declining enrollment trends not only in Aliquippa but also throughout Beaver County. The educational needs of the students will be addressed to meet not only the standards of today, but also of the future. Staff will be more effectively utilized, energy costs reduced and an up-to-date environment developed to educate students safely and effectively.
Groundbreaking on the renovations was May 2008.
