The Mifflin County School District is pleased to introduce a new program called e-Funds for Schools. This program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments on-line and is extremely user friendly. Not only will you have the ability to have lunch payments electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card, you also have the flexibility to make a payment at any time through the school's website. The e-Funds for Schools service is offered to you by a third party service provider and they charge for processing your payment(s), similar to other on-line banking services. The district does not request or keep records of family checking or credit card account information.
A link to the eFunds website is located on the district website and on your Family Access page.

The Mifflin County Elementary School District teachers are hard at work preparing for the upcoming school year. During June, July, and August individuals and teams of teachers have been actively working on defining new curriculum that will guide their teaching. A new resource was needed to support the Reading and Writing curriculum, so elementary staff are attending learning academies to understand how to utilize its new reading program called Benchmark Literacy. This program will help new and experienced teachers develop focused lessons for the whole class and small groups. This will enable all elementary students in the county to experience the same instructional goals no matter which elementary building they attend.

Reynolds Energy Services (RES) has completed the installation of energy efficiency measures (EEMs) as outlined in the Guaranteed Energy Savings Agreement (GESA) dated January 31, 2013, for Mifflin County School District (MCSD) – Indian Valley Elementary School.
In November 2014, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania enacted wide sweeping changes to the Child Protective Services Law that went into effect December 31, 2014. As such, this has impacted the school district in a number of ways to include the requirement for volunteers to obtain clearances. The district has required clearances for some volunteer positions but not all. The changes to CPSL require that all volunteers who have direct interaction with children have clearances, effective July 1, 2015. In addition, those clearances must be updated every three (3) years.
Volunteer activities include: booster organizations where volunteers are chaperoning students, any home and school activities where volunteers are interacting with children, any volunteer coaches, any volunteers for school trips, and any volunteers for classroom activities.
The volunteer instructions to obtain clearances and the volunteer affidavit are available through links under the Students/Parents area.
