A World Class School District

Strive & Drive Program

  • STRIVE for perfect attendance, and DRIVE away with a new 2016 vehicle, donated by Joe Lunghamer Chevrolet! Click on the logo for program details!



Monday, August 17 is the first day back to school for Pontiac School District students, faculty and staff. We hope you enjoyed your time off and were able to take advantage of this great summer weather. But as you return to school, we are introducing an exciting new program that ALL students and their families are eligible to participate: The Pontiac School District Strive & Drive Program for 2015-2016!
This program encourages all Pontiac School District students to 'Strive' for perfect attendance and have the chance to 'Drive'  away with a brand new, 2016 Chevrolet vehicle, courtesy of Joe Lunghamer Chevrolet in Waterford.
We all know that education is the path to success. This program was designed to educate students and their parents on the importance of being in class. By being in attendance on a daily basis, students dramatically increase their chances of graduating from high school, attending college, or securing a job with good pay.
Students earn a series of tickets throughout the year by performing certain activities during each 9-week grading period and during each semester. A maximum of 15 tickets can be earned throughout the school year; each ticket increases the number of entries that student has in the contest, increasing his or her odds of winning the drawing.

  • August 4, 2015 Sinking Fund Millage for Pontiac School District

    Thank you to all who took the time to vote on Tuesday, August 4, 2015. The Sinking Fund Millage, which would have provided much needed building repairs and upgrades for PSD students, was narrowly defeated. Forty-nine percent of district voters supported millage while 51% voted against it. There was only a difference of 116 votes. Many of our buildings are over 50 years old and in significant need of upgrades and repairs. We know our students will continue to perform their best despite having to learn in less-than-optional conditions. The Board of Education is considering the district's options at this time, including the possibility of putting the issue on the November ballot.
