For those who choose 100% virtual
All virtual students (except those in Penn-Delco Cyber Academy) will experience Penn-Delco curriculum taught by Penn-Delco teachers. Students may return to a hybrid during designated times during the school year. Dates to follow. You may download a PDF file of this section as well. Lastly, feel free to watch the webinar of virtual learning by our Manager of Blended and Virtual Learning Mr. Chris Gorniok too.
Recent changes in opening schools with a hybrid solution has necessitated that the Penn-Delco School District launch a virtual learning solution for our students
Penn-Delco Virtual is the at-home learning experience that will deliver a virtual Penn-Delco education driven by our curriculum and taught by our teachers. This is not the learning experienced by our students last Spring or the online version that some of our students choose with a third-party service.
Penn-Delco Virtual combines the live, virtual instruction by our dedicated and experienced staff with the support your student has become accustomed. Far more robust, Penn-Delco virtual learning will offer increased teacher to student engagement, virtual collaboration, and measurable accountability.
The 2020-2021 academic school year opened on September 8th with required attendance in scheduled classes featuring live-in-person instruction by Penn-Delco teachers (synchronous) combined with some independent learning (asynchronous) for flexibility and age appropriateness. Special education continued while social emotional learning (SEL) was infused into the student day so students continued to grow and feel supported throughout their educational experience.
We've continued full virtual options for families to ensure that students continue to enjoy a Penn-Delco education with Penn-Delco teachers.
The virtual learning will begin with the opening of school on September 8 at least through a tentative date of October 9, 2020.
