COVID-19

Announcements:
  • The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) anticipates an increased need for child care during the typical school day due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As public and private schools announce and begin modified attendance and instructional models for the 2020-21 school year, working families will need access to child care for their school-age children. OCDEL licenses child care providers and has issued a clarification for operation of non-licensed part-day school-age child care (SACC) programs or Learning Pods for the 2020-21 school year as a strategy to support the needs of working families. OCDEL developed the Resources for Care and Education of School-Age Children due to COVID-19 document to assist families in navigating SACC programs for the current school year. For additional information and SACC options, please visit the Pennsylvania Key website

  • If you/your student does not have internet access, some providers are offering free or reduced rate service at this time.
  • Comcast is offering two months of free internet service to low income households so that students can engage in online learning.  For more information, visit https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19
