Questions, Comments and ConcernsOverviewDerry 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. Anonymous submissions or those made under a pseudonym cannot be addressed.When a question or concern occurs, the first step is to communicate at the local school or department level. If you would like to ask a question or share a concern about your child, speak to your child's teacher first. (Inquiries initially directed to administrators or school board members will be referred to the local level.) Search our Online Staff Directory to find direct contact information for staff. Making direct contact with the appropriate staff member typically ensures the fastest response.If you are unsure which staff member to address, you may instead use our online constituent contact form. The form has options to pick from several common areas of inquiry. Upon submission, your message is then automatically forwarded to the appropriate administrator, who will then work with staff to facilitate a response. Copies are also provided to each indicvidual school board member. The district is generally able to respond to messages submitted in this manner within three to five business days.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.
All schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including Derry Township School District, have adopted use of the “Safe2Say Something” anonymous tip line as a means of improving campus safety and improving school climate. The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Tips that are found to contain information that may indicate a "life safety" issue are prioritized and immediately forwarded to the appropriate county emergency dispatch center.
Students, parents, and community members can submit tips via three methods:
- By calling 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-2729)
- A free mobile application available for Apple and Android devices
