Easton Area school district

Pennsylvania elementary and secondary schools are set to receive more than $2 billion dollars in federal pandemic relief funds. A portion will be distributed throughout the Lehigh Valley.

The Easton Area School District is looking to build its own cyber academy. District staff say the current program isn’t working for many families. And as WLVR’s Tyler Pratt reports, it appears to have cost the district millions of dollars.

Thousands of K-through-12 students returned to school this week across the Lehigh Valley. But as WLVR’s Tyler Pratt reports, for many it means logging on from home.

Parents in the Easton Area School District have until Wednesday afternoon to decide how their child goes back to school. The choices involve either in-person classes, or choosing one of two different online learning options.

Families in the Easton Area school district will likely have three options to send students back to classes in a few weeks. And will need to make a decision by this Wednesday.
