Act 66 of 2021 Student Grade Level Retainment Notification Form for the
2021-22 School Year

Act 66 of 2021

On June 30, 2021, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 66 of 2021 into law.

This Act permits the following for the 2021-22 school year:

  • A student who was enrolled during the 2020-21 school year may repeat their 2020-21 school year 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; and

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

To qualify to repeat a grade level, a student had to be enrolled in one of the following school entities in Pennsylvania during the 2020-21 school year: a school district, intermediate unit, career and technical education center, charter school, cyber charter school, regional charter school, or nonpublic school.

Parents/guardians interested in re-enrolling their child under the above options for the 2021-22 school year must submit this Act 66 of 2021 Student Grade Level Retainment Notification Form to the district and/or school that the student will attend in the 2021-22 school year on or before July 15, 2021. Do not submit the form to the Department of Education (PDE).

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Revised for 2021-2022 School Year

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
