ACT 66 of 2021 - Student Grade Level Retainment Guidance

On June 30, 2021, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 66 of 2021 (Act 66) into law. Act 66 permits students that were enrolled during the 2020-21 school year to repeat their grade level in an effort to make up for any lost educational opportunities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, even if the student met the requirements to be promoted to the next grade level. Parents/guardians and students, at or over the age of 18, have until July 15, 2021, to elect to have their child or themselves repeat a grade level for the 2021-22 school year. Throughout this guidance, these students are referred to as "students repeating a grade level."

Student Chromebook Collection

Attention Parents,



All student Chromebook collections will occur during homeroom/1st period during the days listed below. Please be prepared to bring all equipment into school on the days listed below. Students will receive a bag that they will place the Chromebook in along with the charger. The homeroom/1st period teacher will have labels to hand out to each student so they can place a label on the Chromebook and also onto the charger. If you turn in a bag that does not have a Chromebook and a charger you could receive a bill for missing school district equipment. The reason to keep these items in a bag is to insure that you receive the equipment next year at the start of school.
