Dear Butler Area School District Community:
We recently provided parents/guardians with the opportunity to provide “start of the year” feedback. In addition, our faculty and staff have been assessing what is working well and what needs to be revised. As a result of this feedback, I have several updates, reminders and changes that I would like to share with you.
First, thank you to everyone who submitted their feedback over the past few weeks. We are using the information that was collected to help ensure each of our Learning Pathways are as effective as possible for the remainder of the year.
We the school year is off to a good start for everyone! View photos from the first day of school.
We hope the school year is off to a great start for everyone. It has been so great to have students back in our buildings! We have a couple of updates that we want to share with you.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Cyber Learning Program orientation in person or attended a learning material pick up this week. If you have already received your child's learning materials, you may disregard this email.
We realize some families could not make it to the orientation or to the pick up times we offered. Therefore, we are offering one more opportunity for elementary parents to pick up their child's materials for the Cyber Learning Program prior to the first day of school.
This is a friendly reminder that the deadline to designate your child’s Learning Pathway in order for it to be in effect on the first day of school is today (Wednesday, August 19, 2020). We will temporarily pause all new enrollments and change requests from August 20-September 4. After September 4, you may change your child’s Learning Pathway.

In an attempt to offer additional courses for secondary students (grades 7-12) who are enrolled in our Online/Cyber School Model or our Hybrid School Model through the district’s Cyber Learning Program, we will be adding live streaming for some courses that are not being offered asynchronously through Edgenuity or Google Classroom.
As a result of this update, we are extending the enrollment deadline to Friday, August 21. We will then temporarily pause our Cyber Learning Program enrollment for secondary students (grades 7-12) from August 22-September 11. The enrollment registration date for elementary (grades K-6) is still today (Wednesday, August 19).
