District Long Range Planning Survey
Attention students, parents, and community members: please take a moment to complete a brief survey regarding how we can better improve our services here in the Punxsutawney Area School District. Your feedback is important to us! This survey should only take about 5 minutes of your time. Your answers will be completely anonymous and the results will be used to complete our Comprehensive Plan. Please vote only once per person. Any duplicate entries will be disqualified. Click on the appropriate link below to take part in this survey.
Parent and Student SIS Portal
The CSIU Portal provides parent/guardian/student access to a variety of student-related information. This new system replaces the eSchoolbook program that we have used in past years. CSIU's SIS is designed to be used as another form of communication with teachers and administrators to help support education throughout the school district. With the Portal, parents, guardians, and students can access their students' grades and other school-related information.
**PLEASE NOTE: You must use the correct corresponding links below to access the appropriate portal. (Ex: Students cannot access their Portal through the Parent Portal log-in page and vice versa. Also, parents/students cannot access their Portal through the CSIU SIS link icon at the top of the page as this is a direct link to the STAFF Portal.)

Punxsutawney Area School District uses SchoolReach for school delay/closing notifications as well as for attendance and other important notification events.
All registrations received during the 2012-2013 school year have been purged from the system; therefore, you must complete the registration survey again in order to receive notification for the 2013-2014 school year. All information and contact numbers are strictly secure and confidential and are only used for the purposes described.
When used, the service will call all phone numbers in our selected contact lists and will deliver a voice or text message from a school administrator. The problem with Verizon Wireless cell phones not receiving text messages has been corrected; therefore, school closing and delay information will only be sent by text message. Parents, students, and staff should not rely on SchoolReach as the only means of notification about school closings and delays.
We will also attempt to make weather-related closing/delay announcements on the following local stations:
Punxsy School TV Cable Channel 18
WTAJ, TV Channel 10, Altoona
WJAC, TV Channel 6, Johnstown
WTAE, TV Channel 189, Pittsburgh
WPSX, TV Channel 3, Penn State
WPXZ, Radio 104.1 FM, Punxsutawney
