Learning Pathway Transition Information

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. 

Learning Pathway Weekly Transition
Schedule for Grades K-6

Wednesdays at Noon Wednesday at noon is the deadline to complete the Learning Pathway Transition Request form in order to be eligible to begin school on Monday. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis (for example health concerns or emergency situations)
Thursday Evening Students transitioning into the Cyber Learning Program will attend orientation and pick up their learning materials.  
Monday Morning Students transitioning to Traditional School must return their school materials and technology (if they were issued a device by the district). 

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

Beginning on Monday, October 12, requests for changing Learning Pathways at the secondary level (grades 7-12) will not be instantaneous. We will offer a transition window at the change of the nine week period as well as five weeks into each nine week period. The intent is that students and parents will have progress reports available at that time to help them make the decision that is best for their family. 

With that said, we understand that a change may be required outside of these specific windows. If your child needs to change his/her Learning Pathway, you must provide a reason in writing to your child’s principal. The principal must review/approve all change requests outside of the open window.
