Flexible Instructional Days an Option for 2022-23 School Year
RTSD will use "Flexible Instructional Days" to deliver instruction to students remotely if circumstances warrant during the 2022-23 school year after a plan was approved by the School Board on May 31 to be submitted to the PA Department of Education.
The option of utilizing FIDs applies to various circumstance, including "hazardous weather conditions," "law enforcement emergencies," "damage to school buildings" and "the inoperability of school buses."
Traditional snow days will still be an option during the 2022-23 school year if circumstances warrant.
The district's FID program has been designed based on responses from families and teachers to previously held Remote Instructional Days. The program would be conducted online and alternatives provided for households needing accommodations.
