Act 66 of 2021 Information 

On June 30, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 66 of 2021 (Act 66) into law.  Act 66 permits students that were enrolled during the 2020-21 school year to repeat their grade level in an effort to make up for any lost educational opportunities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, even if the student met the requirements to be promoted to the next grade level. Based on this Act, parents/guardians and students, at or over the age of 18, have until July 15, 2021, to elect to have their child or themselves repeat a grade level for the 2021-22 school year. 

Additionally, Act 66 permits a student with a disability who was enrolled during the 2020-21 school year and turned age 21 during the 2020-21 school year, or between the end of the 2020-21 and the beginning of the 2021-22 school year, to attend a school entity during the 2021-22 school year and receive services as outlined on their most recent Individualized Education Program (IEP) with all the protections under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  

As required by Act 66, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) developed and posted online a standard form (link) for parents/guardians to notify school entities of their child’s plan to remain in the school and/or current grade level for the 2021-22 school year. School entities are encouraged to post the Act 66 Student Grade Level Retainment Notification Form on the school entity’s publicly accessible website along with instructions and an email address for parents/guardians to submit the form to the school. 

Parents/guardians or students who wish to take advantage of Act 66 must complete, sign, and submit the Act 66 of 2021 Student Grade Level Retainment Notification Form to the student’s district and/or school on or before July 15, 2021. 

Please note, students 18 or older who plan to repeat a grade level during the 2021-22 school year must complete and submit their own form. For a student with a disability who turned 21 during the time periods listed above, both the parent/guardian and the student must complete the form. Forms are to be submitted to the district and/or school in which the student will attend in the 2021-22 school year - they may not be submitted to PDE. 

Guidance and answers to FAQs on Act 66 of 2021 is now available on PDE’s website. Please note, the form will be made available on PDE’s website beginning Tuesday, July 6, 2021 - the form is attached to this email for reference and posting on your website. 

Please send any questions/concerns to the following RA accounts:

PAIU BROADBAND & WASD SURVEYS

To help schools determine which students have an “unmet need” for a connected device and/or internet access for off-campus learning, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and the Penn State Extension have teamed up to release a short survey for public school districts to send to parents.  The survey results will be invaluable in two ways: 1) they will serve as the data collection instrument so schools can successfully apply for the new Emergency Connectivity Fund, and 2) they will inform state and county leaders where Internet is not currently available so funding can be directed towards broadband build-out to those homes.

Survey Link:  https://tinyurl.com/broadbandsurveypa

Please fill out the following survey for Remote Learning so the district can start gathering information for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are looking into various funds to replenish Chromebooks and wireless hotspots and your responses will assist in gathering the information we need.   Thanks in advance and we look forward to your replies.

Google/Chromebook Update

We've been getting reports lately on students having difficulty connecting to Google Meetings.  A device reset normally fixes these issues.  After booting the Chromebook, press the REFRESH (arrow) and POWER button and the device will reset itself.  After reboot, login and check your Google Classroom Meet links.  If there are still issues, please report to techsupport@wyomingarea.org and provide your device name which is labeled on the underside of the Chromebook.  We can lookup the device by inventory too.  The IT Department can remotely reset these devices back to a full factory reset.  This normally fixes issues with the device too.

Chromebook Basic Instructional Guide 

Chrome OS Update Tutorial Video 

If you have any account issues or concerns, please email techsupport@wyomingarea.org.  The IT Department is working daily with Registration and each building to ensure that all newly enrolled students have Google accounts created.  Information on login pattern and Google Classroom tutorials are available on the STUDENTS link from the district website or direct as follows...
