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. We acknowledge, however, that some students perform well virtually, have commitments that require flexible learning, or may still have health and safety concerns due to COVID-19.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the Penn-Delco Cyber Academy for the 22-23 school year, please review the information below and register your child no later than 8/26 to ensure timely access to the digital curriculum. Anyone interested in cyber for the upcoming school year must register online.

Any requests for cyber after 8/26 must be made through your child's school.

Program Details

This program is primarily asynchronous with a live support session each week with a Penn-Delco teacher. This session will support students' progress via Zoom or other video conferencing programs. There will be no live streaming into in-person courses. Please access a PDF of the 2022-2023 Cyber Academy Handbook here. You can also see the handbook online in the handbook section.

Elementary

  • Students in grades K-5 will be using the Educere program as their primary source of course content and asynchronous instruction. The Educere teacher will manage the course content.

  • A Penn-Delco School District teacher will check in with each child via zoom weekly to support their progress.

Secondary

  • Students in grades 6-12 will be using the Apex or PDSD created coursework on Schoology as their primary source of asynchronous instruction.

  • PDSD teachers will be running the content for students at the secondary level. In the unlikely event a PDSD teacher is not available to run the course, an Apex teacher will be assigned to the course.

  • A Penn-Delco School District teacher will check in with each child via zoom weekly to support their progress.

Register by August 26, 2022 here. Or call your school after that date.
