Comprehensive planning is a Pennsylvania Department of Education requirement that affords school districts an opportunity to determine priorities and establish goals and related action plans for a three-year period. Oley’s 2023-26 comprehensive plan must be submitted for public review for 28 days. During that time input is sought from all district stakeholders. It is our desire to pursue suggestions and concerns in order to provide a document that truly reflects the needs of the district.
Additionally, The Pennsylvania Department of Education outlines in Chapter 4 the Planning Requirements for the Comprehensive Plan, Gifted Education Plan Assurances, Professional Education Plan, and Induction Plan. These plans must also be made available for public inspection and comments for 28 days.
Your input/responses will go a long way in setting the educational course for the Oley Valley School District. The Comprehensive Planning committee will meet on October 2 nd to review stakeholder input. Therefore, we encourage any comments to be submitted by October 2nd. The survey will remain open for public comment for 28 days.
Physical exams, dental exams, and updated immunizations will be due by the first day of the current school year.
Physical exam forms are needed for Kindergarten, Grade 6, and Grade 11 students. We will take whatever form your provider completes, or families may use the State Heath form.
Proof of Dental exam are needed for Kindergarten, Grade 3, and Grade 7.
All students need up-to-date immunizations OR a plan to have them completed, (i.e. a confirmed appointment) by the FIRST day of school.

Revised: Important Change in Definition of “Compulsory School Age”
Effective in 2020-2021, all children from the age of six (6) through the age of eighteen (18) must comply with compulsory school attendance requirements. To meet these requirements, parents must ensure that their child between the ages of 6 and 18 is attending or participating in one of the following: a public elementary, middle, or high school; a public charter or cyber-charter school; a private licensed academic or private religious school; home tutoring by a certified teacher; or an approved program of home schooling. Children may be excused from compulsory attendance for documented medical or other compelling reasons as outlined in District attendance policy and procedures.
