NPHS Named Exemplary By Pennsylvania Department Of Education

Northern Potter School News

Northern Potter officials have been officially notified that Northern Potter Junior SeniorHigh School has been validated as an exemplary school for our inclusion program. We are being recognized for excellence in school climate, extracurricular activities, and collaboration.

Northern Potter is one of five schools in the Commonwealth to receive this accolade.


Inclusion has been in effect for four years at the secondary level. Co-teachers who have made this successful are Mr. Baker, Mrs. Bieser, Mr. Haskins, Mr. Hoven, Mr. Kibbe, Mrs. Jackson, Mr. Lander, Mrs. McCutcheon, Mrs. Potocki, Mrs. Simonetti, and Mrs. Wolfinger. This school year there are inclusion classes in science 7, 8, 9, and 12; English 7, 8, and 9; history 8, 9, 10, and 12.

As a result of being named exemplary, Northern Potter will receive
approximately $6,000 this school year and an additional mini grant of $15,000 next year to expand and/or sustain the program.

Our school will host visiting school teams who wish to learn more about inclusion.

Our teachers may also be asked to travel to other schools and conferences to present their practices. Co-teachers will be videotaped in action; the tapes will be used to instruct others in best practices in inclusion.

Miss Valentine and part of the inclusion team have been invited to the PDE conference in Hershey to participate in a panel discussion on April 15.


This honor is certainly noteworthy and something in which all school and community members can take pride. The recognition is a positive reflection on the students’ success and the teachers’ hard work.

Editor's note: This week's Potter Leader Enterprise has an excellent article by Managing Editor Donald Gilliland, expanding on this designation and the people behind it.
