2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR SURVEY
In order to begin planning for the 2021-2022 School Year, the Susquenita School District is asking parents and guardians to complete the 2021-2022 School Year Survey.
We understand that it is early and that your plans may change. However, it is important the District begin to gather this type of information so we can make plans to best fit the needs of our students moving forward. We do not expect families to commit to a decision at this time. If your plans change after you complete this survey, you do not need to let us know at this time.
As you complete the survey, we want to make sure you understand how the Susquenita School District Blended Cyber Program operated prior to the 2020-2021 School Year and how we anticipate it being operated in the future, if the need arises.
- The SSD Blended Cyber Program is an educational program designed to meet the needs of students who want to pursue their education in a non-traditional format.
- Susquenita is currently a member partner with Capital Area Online Learning Association (CAOLA) and contracts through them for the distance learning program that is competency-based and fully aligned with the Pennsylvania Academic Standards.
- In the 2015-2016 School Year, our cyber program accepted our first students which was open to grades 6-12. During the first two years of the program, we solely used vendor curriculum and vendor teachers both of which were powered by CAOLA.
- Beginning with the 2017-2018 School Year, the District expanded upon our cyber offerings and began using Susquenita teachers to implement both vendor curriculum and the District’s own curriculum. Every year, we add more Susquenita High School courses taught by our teachers.
- During the 2020-2021 School Year, as a result of COVID-19, we quickly developed a Remote Learning Program using a blend of Accelerate Education and Susquenita School District Curriculum, to provide for the needs of our students during closures and to give an option to families that did not feel safe sending their children to school. This was only designed as a stop-gap measure as a result of the pandemic.
Moving forward, the District plans on continuing with the Susquenita School District Blended Cyber Program as we had in the past; however, we are looking at options to expand our offerings.
- High school students in the program will have a mix of the following (dependent upon course selection):
- Susquenita courses taught by Susquenita staff
- Vendor courses (powered by CAOLA) taught but Susquenita staff
- Vendor courses taught by a vendor teacher (powered by CAOLA)
- Middle school students will be enrolled in vendor courses taught by vendor teachers which will be powered by CAOLA.
- In the past, we did not have a program at our elementary level but are looking at the possibilities for next school year.
- If the District chooses to move forward with an elementary program, those students would be enrolled in vendor courses taught by vendor teachers which will be powered by CAOLA.
- Please know that no decision has been made about the addition of an elementary program at this time.

PHASED SCHOOL REOPENING HEALTH AND SAFETY PLAN
Susquenita School District must create a Health and Safety Plan which will serve as the local guidelines for all instructional and non- instructional school reopening activities. As with all emergency plans, the Health and Safety Plan developed for each school entity should be tailored to the unique needs of each school and should be created in consultation with local health agencies. Given the dynamic nature of the pandemic, each plan should incorporate enough flexibility to adapt to changing conditions.
