American Education Week
REACH. EDUCATE. INSPIRE.
Since 1921, American Education Week has been celebrating the U.S. public school system, and during this 98th year, beginning Monday, November 18th, through Friday, November 22nd, we again recognize Dallastown Area School District's commitment to quality education for every child.
The district's initiatives personalize learning for the whole student, incorporating relevant, engaging curriculum and instructional practices, taught by a dedicated faculty, staff, and administration. Along with district service providers, Chartwells Schools Dining Services and Reliance Student Transportation, we are a unified team serving the Dallastown community.

Next week, the Dallastown Area High School International Thespian Society (ITS) Troupe #7973 will induct its newest members. This global honor society recognizes the dedication and hard work students have committed to excellence in theater arts in 50 states and 13 countries.
