Children with English as a Second Language
We will support your child(ren) through our English as a Second Language Program (ESL). ESL programs are designed for students whose dominant language is not English. The purpose of the program is to increase the English language proficiency of eligible students so they can attain academic standards and achieve success in the classroom.
Please contact our Special Education Department at 412-466-8130 Ext. 3014 for more information.
Change of Address
What happens if I move? What if I move to a new residence but still live in Duquesne?
Any time you move from one address to another, you are required to change the address, in person, with the Central Registration office. We will not be able to change your address by fax or any other means. School mail will not be forwarded to your new address unless this process is completed. Continuation of returned mail can create questions in regard to your residency status (if the school receives returned mail from the post office, we may investigate to see if you still live in Duquesne.)
What if I move out of the District?
If you are moving out of Duquesne, please contact Central Registration at 412-466-5300 Ext. 2219 or our Guidance Counselor at 412-466-9600 Ext. 3009. In order to officially withdraw your child(ren) from our District, you must sign our official Withdrawal form. Following this process will help prevent truancy issues while you are transitioning your child(ren) to their new District.
