School District

Our District

Located in McKean County, Pennsylvania, the Otto-Eldred School District works together with our community members to create a learning environment that promotes literacy and academic success in all of our students.

We believe our students can learn and succeed, and it is our responsibility to provide the resources students need to develop their full potential. As such, all students who graduate from the Otto-Eldred School District will be college or career ready, possessing the literacy skills they need to be an effective member of our society.
