Accommodating virtual learners

  • Academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and socially, students experience real growth when they are learning in the classroom. Our Comprehensive Plan and our Portrait Of a Graduate strategy are best executed with teachers and students together in the classroom.  While we are thrilled that we welcomed our students back this year for full days in the classroom, we acknowledge that some students performed well virtually, or that some families may still have health and safety concerns due to COVID-19. 

    If you are interested in Penn-Delco Cyber Academy, please review the information below and contact your school principal.  Information regarding registration for cyber for the 2022-2023 academic year is forthcoming.  All requests for cyber information should now go through your building principal.  

    Details concerning the program

    This program is primarily asynchronous with a live session each week with a Penn-Delco teacher. This session will support students’ progress via Zoom or other video conferencing program. *Unlike during COVID, there will be no live streaming from realtime classes.*

    • Students in grades K-5 will be using the Educere program as their primary source of course content and asynchronous instruction.
    • Students in grades 6-12 will be using the Apex program as their primary source of course content and asynchronous instruction. 
    • Educere and Apex will provide students with a teacher for each course of asynchronous work they are enrolled in.
    • A Penn-Delco School District teacher will meet with each child weekly to support their progress.
