Charter Sector Re-Opening 2020-21

All Schools in Pennsylvania are required to adopt and publish Health and Safety Plans prior to re-starting in person instruction. The Charter Schools Office (CSO) is compiling links to each plan as well as high level information on school re-opening.

Please note:

  • Plans for students’ return to buildings differ by School and are subject to change. Detailed information can be found on schools’ own websites.
  • For the most up-to-date information, please contact the school directly. You can find the school’s contact information by visiting our page here and clicking on the appropriate school link. Updates will be made as provided.
  • ‘TBD’ implies information is to be determined at a later time, according to the school. ‘N/A’ implies updates are currently not applicable, per school note.

Instruction Learning Model Guide

Remote Learning – Total remote learning for all students.

Scaffolded Learning – Some students are engaged in in-person learning, while others are distance learning (i.e., some grade levels in-person, other grade levels remote learning).

Blended Learning – Blended reopening (also referred to as Hybrid) that balances in-person learning and remote learning for all students (i.e., alternating days or weeks).

In-Person Learning – Total reopen for all students and staff; some students/families may opt for distance learning out of safety/health concerns.
