SCA Scholars Shine in Scholastic Scrimmage!

SCA Awarded a PDE Safe Schools Grant

The Southern Columbia Area School District has been awarded a Safe Schools Targeted Grant as announced by Acting Secretary of Education Carolyn Dumaresq. SCA received the maximum grant award of $25,000 and will use the funds for security enhancements in its school buildings. The goal of the competitive grant program is to prevent and reduce incidents of violence in schools.  "Pennsylvania's schools should be a safe haven for students, where their focus is on academics and reaching their highest potential," Dumaresq said.

Student Meal-Charging Guidelines Explained

While the U.S. Department of Agriculture does not require schools to serve unpaid meals, the Southern Columbia Area School District extends meal-charging as a courtesy to those students who forget or lose their lunch money. There are limits to this courtesy however, as the District must protect itself against those who take advantage of this well-intentioned act. When parents fail to pay for school meals, both the students and the School District are hurt.
