    The District is asking parents for their decision on whether they’ll be sending their children to school in-person for the beginning of the academic year or if they’d prefer to utilize an e-learning schooling program. 

    Superintendent Anthony Hamlet announced the options on Thursday: “While we continue our "All In" planning for the safe and healthy reopening of schools, in this time of uncertainty, we know some families may not want their student to return to a brick and mortar school environment.

    “We want to provide families with a choice on how their child receives instruction this upcoming school year,” Hamlet continued.

    If families are interested in exploring the fully online learning option, there is an application on the Pittsburgh Public School website.

    The District is looking to get the results of the family decisions by July 20.

    Students that choose to do the e-learning option will remain in their appropriate school or program for the 2020-2021 school year.

    Children that are not registered for learning will automatically be assigned to in-person schooling.
