Welcome to the Shikellamy School District Web Site. Located in the heart of the Susquehanna Valley, the Shikellamy School District offers the area the finest educational facilities and faculty. It is our goal to provide a climate for all students to experience the skills they need to become caring and responsible citizens of our community. We strive to deliver the best possible education to our students.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth.  Federal and state laws make the school district’s responsibility clear.

  • A student whose family becomes homeless may remain in the school he/she was attending prior to becoming homeless for the duration of the school year.

  • If it is feasible, a student may transfer to a school if it is closer to his/her transitional housing.

  • The receiving school may not prevent or delay the enrollment of a homeless child by requiring proof of residency or lack of documentation such as immunization records.  

  • Transportation for homeless must begin within 5 school days, but sooner if possible.

If you have questions concerning the athletic schedule, bus schedule, graduation requirements, or any concerns particular to a student, please contact the building principal where your child attends school. You can find information for each school by navigating to the Schools menu at the top of this page.
