Parent Orientation Sessions

Choosing a cyber school in Pennsylvania can be both thrilling and challenging; however, deciding that cyber school is the right for your child can greatly enrich their educational experience and offer exceptional resources for effective learning. To provide the most comprehensive information possible, the Community Engagement Team hosts virtual Parent Orientation Sessions for the parents and guardians of prospective students and/or enrolled students. These in-depth orientations are designed to educate parents about daily life at PA Distance online school, the benefits of cyber school, and how to best support their students while learning in a new online environment.

Each session covers:

  • Parent/Student Portal: Infinite Campus
  • Checking Grades
  • Time Management
  • Organization
  • Attendance
  • Communication
  • Basic Technology

2023-2024 School Year Parent Orientation Sessions are outlined HERE and can be found on the PA Distance Google Calendar for enrolled students/guardians.
