Announcements

  • Duquesne City, PA – March 28, 2024 – On March 27, 2024, Duquesne City School District administrators were notified that the Pennsylvania Department of Education did not approve its request for a return of the district’s high school, grades 9-12.

    Duquesne’s administrative team was deeply saddened to learn about the rejection. The department gave one reason for the application denial: that to operate a high school program, the district would require long-term revenue commitments that its current financial status would not be able to support.

    The district’s administrative team will continue to seek ways to provide the best possible educational experience for the students and residents of Duquesne City.

  • The Duquesne City School District has adopted a new student phone policy. That phone policy can be viewed in full by clicking here. Additionally, the board policy can be found here.

    Students will be provided a Yondr pouch, which they will store their phones in throughout the school day. As students arrive to school, they will turn their phones off, place their phone inside their pouch and secure it in front of school staff. They will then store their pouch in their backpack for the day.

    At the end of the day, students will open their pouch, remove their phone and leave their pouch at school.

    The District has implemented this policy in order to support an educational environment that is orderly, safe and secure for District students and employees, while also recognizing that electronic devices may provide a positive contribution when used for educational purposes. 

    *Please note that an earlier version of this policy was posted on August 22. That version was slightly inaccurate.

    Resolution Honoring National Black History Month

    By the Receiver, Acting as the Board of School Directors

    February 2023

    Whereas, since 1926, our nation traditionally commemorates and celebrates the contributions of African Americans during February; and

    Whereas, since our nation’s Bicentennial in 1976, each president has issued proclamations declaring February as Black History Month; and

    Whereas, “Black Resistance: Building Bridges and Navigating Barriers” is this year’s national theme and looks at how African Americans have fought repression from American’s earliest days; and,

    Whereas, African Americans have contributed significantly to the economic, cultural, spiritual, and political development of the country, as well as to that in the Duquesne City School District; and,

    Whereas, students of African American heritage are a significant population of the Duquesne City School District; and,

    Whereas, African American principals, assistance principals and other educators, paraprofessionals, personal care assistants, secretaries, and custodians serve with dedication, commitment, and distinction; and,

    Whereas, School Board Directors of African American heritage serve with dedication, commitment, and distinction; and,

    Whereas, incorporating an accurate portrayal of African American history into the curriculum and teaching the contributions of African American history culture, society, and language in the classroom promotes academic success for African American students, increases the understanding of all students, and benefits all citizens.

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Duquesne City School District Board of School Directors proclaims February 2023 Black History Month and encourages students and staff to honor it during February and throughout the school year with interactive research, classroom lesson plans, guest speakers, displays, lectures, practical activities, and cultural celebrations.

    HEREBY proclaimed this 1st day of February, 2023
