School Attendance Records - Elk Run School - 1891-1900
In October 2009 I obtained from one of the local attics five school attendance books of Sullivan Township. They are Red School, Elk Run School, Hulslander School, Clark School and Scouten Hill School.  These are particularly valuable because they cover that era of the missing 1890 census and may identify children who fell between the census years. The books include the names and ages of the students, the teacher's receipt for pay, lists of books used in the school, visitors, and various statistics that were eventually consolidated at the township, count and state level for publication in the Pennsylvania Superintendent of Schools Annual. As I process this informaiton I will include it on the site, starting with Red School.

From early times until 1892 a summer term was held for younger children and a winter term for the older children. Some of middle age may have attended both sessions. Teacher contracts were by the term. In 1893, the winter term was extended and a summer term eliminated. All children, regardless of age, went to the winter term school.
