The Conneaut School District is a public school district in Crawford County, Pennsylvania and geographically encompasses approximately the western third of the county. The school district is approximately 8 miles west of Meadville, 40 miles south of Erie and 91 miles north of Pittsburgh. Comprising a total area of approximately 319 square miles, the School District is bordered on the south by Mercer County, on the west by the state of Ohio, on the north by Erie County and on the east by the city of Meadville. The School District comprises the Boroughs of Conneaut Lake, Conneautville, Linesville and Springboro; and the Townships of Beaver, Conneaut, East Fallowfield, Greenwood, North Shenango, Pine, Sadsbury, Spring, Summerhill, Summit and West Fallowfield. The School District can be classified as rural with the majority of the work force employed in area contiguous to that of the School District.

Attendance Areas[edit]

The Conneaut School District comprises three separate attendance areas: Linesville, Conneaut Lake and Conneaut Valley. Each attendance area represents a small diverse community. Linesville is a small community located near the Pennsylvania and Ohio state line. It is a close-knit community. Many tourist visit Linesville because of the town’s proximity to Pymatuning Lake. Conneaut Lake is a resort town on the shores of Conneaut Lake. Tourism flourishes here particularly during summer months. Conneaut Valley represents the community of Conneautville and Springboro, small towns in the north-central part of the school district. The Conneaut Valley community is also centered in a predominantly agricultural area of Crawford County.

Schools[edit]

The Conneaut School District Board of Education recently voted to reconfigure its school buildings and realign its attendance areas in order to cut costs and more efficiently serve its students. The board voted to have 2 elementary schools, 2 middle school schools and one senior high school to serve the district. Prior to reconfiguration, the district had 3 elementary schools and 3 junior-senior high schools. All of the district's buildings will be used in the reconfiguration.

An Administration Building, located on the Linesville campus, houses the district’s central office staff. The six schools and the Administration Building have recently been extensively renovated. The renovation project speaks well of the communities’ high priority and commitment in providing the best education facilities for the children of the school district.
