School Security Staff Town Hall Meetings

The Penns Valley School District wants to hear from you!
School Security Staff Town Hall Meetings

Join the conversation about school security staff and whether their employment is right for Penns Valley.

Dear Penns Valley Community,

School safety continues to be a hot-button issue across the country. Although the Penns Valley Area School District has implemented a number of new safety measures in our schools since our school safety meeting (and subsequent survey) in 2019, PVASD does not currently employ any school safety staff (Bald Eagle, Bellefonte, State College, and CPI all employ safety personnel). Please join us online or in person for one or all of our Town Hall meetings this fall to discuss the use of school safety staff in schools and whether employing school safety staff is right for Penns Valley. The first Town Hall meeting will be on Tuesday, October 18th. There will be two more Town Hall meetings on October 27th and November 9th. All meetings will begin at 6:00 PM in the high school auditorium. You can also attend virtually if you like. There is one zoom link for all three of the meetings. Click here to join.

The meetings will allow our school leaders to…

  1. Obtain valuable insights into people’s perspectives on the employment and effective use of school security staff (SSS)
  2. Assess the level of support and identify concerns from different stakeholders
  3. Manage the responsibilities of SSS to meet community and school expectations (in the event we do employ SSS)

Join the conversation. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Nate Althouse
Community Relations Director

2022 Centre County West Nile Virus Surveillance and Control season

The 2022 Centre County West Nile Virus Surveillance and Control season has begun. The Surveillance and Control Program is managed by the County Planning & Community Development Office and is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Due to the recent discovery of highly pathogenic avian influenza in PA and its potentially devastating effect on wild and domestic birds, the Centre County Surveillance and Control Program will not be accepting dead birds for testing. Dead bird reports can be forwarded to the Pennsylvania Game Commission at 610-926-3136 or to pcgwildlifehealth@pa.gov

Residents are urged to eliminate sources of standing water such as unused swimming pools, stagnant ornamental ponds, poorly functioning roof gutters and especially used tires. Between May and the end of September, adult mosquito trapping will be periodically conducted within our municipality. Questions or concerns, please contact the County at 814-355-6791 and for more information​ see the PA Dept. of Health website at www.westnile.state.pa.gov
