Online School Support for Our Families

When a child enrolls at PA Distance, they become a member of our school family, where we do everything we can to support each and every student. The relationship we have with our students, parents, and guardians is paramount, and so is the online school support we provide. On the front lines of this effort is our Community Engagement Team, comprised of a variety of individuals who each bring something different to the table.

Community Engagement Team

The Community Engagement Team of our cyber charter school in PA provides families with a variety of resources and works as a liaison between each household and their local community. For example, our Community Engagement Team can provide guidance and local resources for:

  • Crisis & Emergencies
  • Disaster Assistance
  • Food Resources
  • Unemployment
  • Impact of Online Education on Parents
  • Mental Health & Well-Being
