If you have concerns regarding your child’s academic performance and achievement in school; behavior in the classroom; and/or mental health or medical problems that interfere with achievement, growth and/or progress, the Ridgway Area School District is able to offer you and your child assistance.
Likewise, if you believe your child is demonstrating outstanding talent or showing the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared to same age peers, the Ridgway Area School District is able to offer you and your child assistance.
Through the Office of Students Services, RASD offers screenings and evaluations that will assess your child’s needs as they relate to his/her academic achievement and emotional/behavioral growth. You can find out more about these screenings and evaluations by contacting the RASD Assistant Superintendent at the Office of Student Services at (814)776-4255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ridgway Area School District provides transportation to and from school for all school aged children during the school year. Transportation is provided free of charge for all students attending the Ridgway Area Schools.
As a result of closed roads and construction downtown traffic is heavy at certain times of the day. It is recommended that all families use the district transportation.
Please keep in mind that there may be delays in pick-up or drop-off due to heavy traffic during the school year.
