Changing Your Learning Pathway

Last Updated: 9/14/2020 3:27 PM

During the 2020-2021 school year, Butler Area School District is offering two Learning Pathways for students in grades K-6 and four Learning Pathways for students in grades 7-12. The Learning Pathways are designed to be flexible to meet the individual needs of students and families. As such, students may need to transition between Leaning Pathways throughout the year. 

Please note, unless there is an emergency situation, your change request will follow the timeline outlined below. If you have an urgent situation, please contact your child's principal.

Important Notes for Grades K-6

Elementary students (K-6) who are transitioning from Traditional School to the Cyber Learning Program must attend an orientation. This orientation will cover important information about the program as well as be an opportunity for students and parents to practice logging in to all programs to ensure they they will be up and running on their first day in the Cyber Learning Program. In addition, parents may pick up their child's learning materials at orientation.

Elementary students (K-6) who are transitioning from the Cyber Learning Program to Traditional School must return their materials and their district issued device (if applicable) when they return to school. If parents/guardians are not able to drop these materials off on Monday morning, they should contact the building principal to make alternate arrangements. 

Learning Pathway Transition for Grades 7-12

We do not have a specific timeline for students in grades 7-12 who are transitioning between our Learning Pathways. Each transition will be handled on an individual basis. The school will contact each individual family to discuss the transition details.
