All school districts in the state of Pennsylvania are required to complete and submit a Comprehensive Plan to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) on a six-year cycle. Under the discretion of previous administration, the OFSD was offered extensions and never formally completed and submitted their required plan.
Current administration worked with PDE to complete the required sections of the Comprehensive Plan. This document is for the review and input of the community at large. To download the plan, use this Comprehensive Plan Download Link.
Please contact the Office of the Superintendent at 570-457-6721 or email@example.com to offer your input, comments or suggestions. This plan will be on review for 30 days, and will be approved at the October 16, 2019 school board meeting.
The district will begin their new planning process in January 2020. If you would like to serve on the committee, please contact the Office of the Superintendent.
We look forward to your input and suggestions.

The Old Forge School District uses an on-line assessment tool developed by Pearson Clinical Assessment to establish instructional baselines in Reading and Math and to measure individual student progress for certain students whose Individualized Education Programs (“IEPs”) include goals addressing these areas. That program is marketed as Aimsweb 1.0.
We recently received a notice from Pearson advising us of a data breach in the Aimsweb program resulting in the possible disclosure of the first and last names of assessed students. Although the breach also allowed access to other types of information, such as dates of birth and addresses, we do not supply that information to Pearson in our use of this assessment tool. Below are links to a letter detailing the data breach from Pearson, and a letter for identify protection to those students and staff affected.
All students and staff whose information was breached will receive a letter from the district. If you have questions of concerns, please contact the Office of Special Education at 570-457-6721 Ex. 136.
