  • 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.

  • FLEXIBLE INSTRUCTIONAL DAYS

    The Pennsylvania Department of Education has approved the use of “Flexible Instructional Days” (FIDs), which provide continuity of instruction through flexible means, on days when the school is traditionally closed due to inclement weather or emergency - think “Cyber Snow Days”. 

    Authorization:  Act 64 of 2019: Section 1506 – Flexible Instructional Days 

    Act 64 of 2019 amended the Public-School Code to allow public school entities to develop a Flexible Instructional Day (FID) program as an alternative approach to delivering instruction when circumstances prevent the delivery of instruction in its customary manner or location. The FID program may be online, offline, or a combination of the two. Act 64 defines a school entity as a school district, intermediate unit, area vocational-technical school, or charter school or regional charter school, as defined under section 1703-A.  

    The District is not required to “makeup” FIDs. They are deemed a school day by the state and count toward the total number of instructional days required by the Public-School Code. 

    Flexible Instructional Days are permissible under the following circumstances - not exceed 5 total days during any school year:

    • Hazardous weather conditions
    • Disease epidemic
    • Law enforcement emergency
    • Inoperability of school busses or equipment necessary to the District's operation.
    • Damage to a school building
    • Other temporary circumstances rendering any portion of a school building unfit or unsafe for use.

     

    NOTE: It remains our goal to have students in school as often as circumstances permit.

  • PA CHANGES COMPULSORY SCHOOL AGE

    Act 16 of 2019, which was signed in June, made two significant changes in the Public School Code regarding attendance. The following changes will take effect on August 2020.

    1) Compulsory School Age: all children from the age of six (6) through the age of eighteen (18) must comply with compulsory school attendance requirements. To meet these requirements, parents must ensure that their child between the ages of 6 and 18 is attending or participating in one of the following: a public elementary, middle, or high school; a public charter or cyber-charter school; a private licensed academic or private religious school; home tutoring by a certified teacher; or an approved program of home schooling. Children may be excused from compulsory attendance for documented medical or other compelling reasons as outlined in District attendance policy and procedures.

    2) Full Academic Year Requirement: a student who is absent for 20 percent or more of his or her days of enrollment will not be considered to have met the “full academic year” requirement for purposes of school accountability testing (PSSA and Keystones). This new rule is effective for the Spring 2021 administration of the PSSAs and for any 2020-2021 administration of the Literature, Algebra, and Biology Keystones.
