    Overview
    Contact UsDerry Township School District believes effective collaboration among home, community, and school is essential. The district encourages all constituents - parents and guardians, community members, and local businesses - to communicate with us regarding district operations.
     
    When a question or concern occurs, the first step is to communicate at the local school level or with the appropriate department. Inquiries initially directed to school board members or district office administration will be referred to the local level.
     
    In the event of an emergency where there is an imminent threat of harm (from others or through self-harm) to a student, staff member or school property, take immediate action by calling 911.  A dispatcher will connect you with the appropriate first responders.   While the school district works in close collaboration with many agencies and service providers, the school is not a substitute for those entities whose primary function is to deliver crisis and emergency assistance.
     
    Specific Questions/Concerns About Your Child 
    If you would like to ask a question or share a concern about your child, speak to your child's teacher first. If need be, additional contact can then be made with the appropriate administrator.

    Anonymous Alerts
       
    Anonymous ALerts Logo graphic During the 2017-2018 School Year, the district will be piloting a new technology-based tool called Anonymous Alerts that students can use to report: drug or alcohol related issues, bullying/cyberbullying, violent behavior/threats and other campus safety hazards.  The best way for students and/or families to share information and concerns continues to be through direct conversation with a teacher, counselor, nurse, trusted staff member or administrator.  We recognize, however, that there may be some instances where students would prefer to share information electronically.

    Reports may be made at any time, but Anonymous Alerts® should NOT be used to report emergency, urgent or time-critical concerns. At DTSD, the Anonymous Alerts® system will be monitored from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. on days when school is in session. Reports submitted at other times will be addressed the next scheduled school day.

     

    Alert Alert Please Note: requests for records, official documents or other information covered by Pennsylvania’s Right to Know/Open Records Act should be submitted to the Open Records Officer via an official Right to know Request Form and NOT via the general contact form.
