  • Notice to Exiting Students Regarding Destruction of Special Education Records

    Special Education records, which have been collected by the Somerset Area School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of the Special Education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal law for a period of seven years after Special Education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student no longer is eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district.  Student files will be destroyed ten years after the student exits the Somerset Area School District

    After ten (10) years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but they may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for Social Security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student, who reached 18 years of age, may request a copy of the records in writing or in person at the following address.

  • Children's Health Insurance Program 

    The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers uninsured kids and teens up to age 19. With more than 139,000 uninsured children in Pennsylvania, this is great news for families! CHIP provides quality, comprehensive health insurance for routine doctor visits, prescriptions, dental, eye care, eyeglasses, mental health and much more. CHIP covers uninsured kids who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. For most families, CHIP is free – for others, it is low cost.

    • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis
    • 4 doses of polio
    • 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella
    • 3 doses of hepatitis B
    • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity

    7th through 12th grade students need to meet ADDITIONAL immunization requirements for attendance:

    • 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV): The 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age and the 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade
