    Update on Cyber Costs

    With the addition of 7 more students opting to enroll with "outside" cyber schools as of October 9, it will cost an additional projected amount of $104,944.78 to the Taxpayers.  This brings our Total Projected "Outside" Cyber School costs to $2,009,276.92.  Reach out to your local legislators to let them know it's time for cyber-charter funding reform.  These growing costs will force us to continue to raise taxes and cut programs and services for our own students in order to pay millions of dollars to cyber-charter schools.

    Attention All Shamokin Area Students and Families Attending “Outside” Cyber Schools:

     While it is true that the families of children who attend cyber-charter schools do not pay any tuition directly to the cyber-charter school, students attend cyber-charter schools at public expense. School districts are required by law to make a tuition payment to a cyber-charter school for every student residing in the school district who enrolls in the cyber-charter school.

    This includes students who enroll in a cyber-charter school and were previously home-schooled or attended a nonpublic school, even if the students were never enrolled in the school district.

    WHAT CAN WE DO?

    Reach out to your local legislators to let them know it’s time for cyber-charter funding reform.  We simply cannot keep up with these growing costs and be forced to raise taxes and cut programs and services for our own students in order to pay millions of dollars to cyber-charter schools.

    The Shamokin Area School District is offering Virtual/Online Pathways for its students who are seeking virtual learning options.  Our pathways provide flexibility to our students and families at a much lower cost. 

    Tier I Virtual Pathway is the live Google Classroom pathway where students have access to live instruction from Shamokin Area teachers.  Instruction can be viewed synchronously (live) or asynchronously (on your own time). 

    Tier II Virtual Pathway is the Odysseyware/Edgenuity Courseware pathway where students can engage in self-paced lessons and assessments from licensed online instructors.  For more information, click the links below:

    Our District currently spends more than two-million dollars (YES $2,000,000+) of taxpayer monies per year for “outside” cyber charter school tuitions in our budget.  Over the past ten years, the District has spent nearly twelve-million dollars (YES $12,000,000) in “outside” cyber charter tuitions.  By signing up for one of the above options, you will not only be receiving high quality virtual instruction, but also will be helping to provide a significant savings for the Shamokin Area School District taxpayers during these difficult economic times.

    Important information about the Shamokin Area Virtual/Online Pathways include:

    • Students who live in Shamokin Area School District and are enrolled in one of the Shamokin Area Virtual/Online Pathways can participate in Shamokin Area School District athletics, activities, and support services (if qualified).
    • Students who live in Shamokin Area School District and complete one of the Shamokin Area Virtual/Online Pathways will receive a Shamokin Area School District diploma and can participate in graduation ceremonies.
    • For more information, call the Shamokin Area Elementary Office at 570-648-5721 or the Shamokin Area Middle/High School Office at 570-648-5731.
