During his tenure, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf has been trying to defund charter schools across the Commonwealth and make it harder for schools like PA Distance to operate. Time and time again, the state legislature has defended charter schools against these numerous attempts.
Mrs. Jessica Chavers started at PA Distance during the 2020-2021 school year to teach 3rd grade Social Studies and English Language Arts (ELA). Now, in her second school year, she is solely focusing on teaching ELA.
For the 2021-2022 school year, PA Distance has adopted new curriculum materials for K-5 and 6-12 English Language Arts (ELA) and 7th and 8th grade Math. Curriculum & Instruction Coordinator, Mrs. Tanya Contos, worked with PA Distance teachers and administration to research, test, and implement these exciting new curriculum programs.
