School Reopening Update, July 31

July 31, 2020

As we proceed with the planning involved for reopening schools, we wanted to share a few important updates with you:

  • All students K - 12 across the school district, regardless of whether they attend in-person or in the Souderton Area Online Academy, will receive a device for the coming school year. Device distribution will take place at the end of August.

  • We know that parents have many questions about the coming school year. We are continuing to add to the Frequently Asked Questions on our Web site, and ask parents to continue to look for updates. You can also reach out to your building principal with additional questions. Thank you for your patience as we work through a high volume of questions this summer.

  • There are now expanded secondary school course offerings available in the Souderton Area Online Academy (SAOA). Please see the SAOA Middle Schools Course Offerings and the SAOA High School Course Catalog.
    • While the vast majority of our SAOA high school courses will be District curriculum taught by Souderton teachers, some expanded course selections may be scheduled with our established partnership programs. We will do our very best to offer as many courses as possible completely in-district. However, in the same way that students may have taken some courses as dual enrollment classes with our local community college, sometimes course selections are not fulfilled by our own teaching staff.
