The Greater Latrobe School District is located in southwestern
We take great pride in being a student-centered school district with diverse course offerings and high academic standards for our pupils. We strive to be progressive in promoting teaching techniques that appeal to the various learning styles of pupils. During strategic planning, members of the community who represent various businesses, industries, and parent organizations challenged educators to develop and use assessment systems that are results-oriented.
Our Strategic Plan emphasizes the development of communication skills and mathematics. Specifically, we expect our students to write and to write well. Additionally, students will be asked to participate in the development and delivery of speeches, and their ability to read and write will be assessed through standardized and local testing measures. In mathematics, we have implemented pre- and post-testing and quarterly assessment procedures at various grade levels. This program is designed to streamline the curriculum so that we avoid unnecessary repetition and prepare students to make practical application of concepts taught in mathematics.
