East Penn's long-standing reputation for quality public education is one big reason why many families sink deep roots…More in the Emmaus area. In addition to Emmaus, the district educates students who live in Upper Milford and Lower Macungie townships and in the boroughs of Macungie and Alburtis. Three of the district's 10 schools are in Emmaus: Lincoln and Jefferson elementary schools and Emmaus High School. East Penn's administration building is attached to the north side of the high school.
Public meetings of the nine-member, elected school board usually are the second and fourth Monday of each month. Meetings start at 7:30pm in the building's board room. Anyone wishing to address the board should sign up before the start of the meeting. The board imposes limits on how long you can speak and whether the subject you plan to raise is deemed appropriate.
