Home School is one education option available to students. For detailed guidelines, information, and requirements, please refer to the PA Department of Education’s guidelines on Homeschooling.
PSSA / Keystone Exams
PSSA exams are taken in grades 3 through 8. Keystone Exams are end-of-course assessments taken at the conclusion of Algebra 1, English 10, and Biology, regardless of what grade students are in at the time.
If you desire to have your child take the state PSSA tests or Keystone Exams with district-enrolled students, you must contact the principal of the school building serving your neighborhood. If you are unsure which building principal to contact, our Pupil Services Office (717-569-8231 x3043) can direct you. All requests must be received in the buildings no later than October 1 of each year in order to ensure testing labels and materials are ordered for your child.
For students in grades 6-12, the Pennsylvania Department of Education created the Pennsylvania Core Standards that highlight the various content standards across core curricular areas. To use this resource, simply select the grade level and the subject area.
In an effort to help parents establish quality goals and objectives each year, our district has gathered valuable resources for you:
If you are interested in having your child participate in medical screening offered by the Manheim Township School District Nursing Staff, call the appropriate attendance zone school to schedule an appointment.
All students that live in the district have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities offered by the district.
For more information, please contact the district’s Home School Coordinator, Mrs. Jessica O’Gorman, at 717-569-8231, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
