Update 3.23.20

Dear Coatesville Area School District Community Members:

During his 2:00 PM press conference today, Governor Wolf announced an extension of closure for all Pennsylvania schools. As a result, the Coatesville Area School District will remain closed until at least April 13, 2020. We will provide more detailed communication regarding the impact to District operations and student learning opportunities later this week.

We have created an email address to receive public comments on the Coatesville Area School District Board Agenda items for the School Board meeting on March 24, 2020. This meeting will be held virtually and can be viewed on YouTube. Access to view the live stream will be public, and the link to bring up the stream can be found on the district homepage, left-hand column, under “Announcements”. The stream will go live and can be accessed beginning at 6:30 p.m. without sound. The Board meeting will begin at 7 p.m. with sound.

Anyone wishing to make public comment on the agenda may do so by submitting their comment including their name, address, and group affiliation, if applicable. Comments can be submitted via email to  no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, March 23rd. 

Comments following the board meeting can be submitted online to the same email address. Please include your name, address, and group affiliation. We will take these comments or questions until 5 minutes after the last agenda item is presented. The comments and questions will be read in the order in which they are received. If there is a question or comment that was already asked, the repetitive questions and comments will not be re-read. Questions and comments not addressed will be placed on an FAQ sheet, and the FAQ document on the district website. Thank you for your support during this difficult time and we appreciate your understanding as chart new waters in making our board meetings work for our community.


Rick Dunlap

Interim Superintendent
