Act 66 of 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On June 30th, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 66 of 2021 into law.  Act 66 permits students that were enrolled during the 2020-21 school year to repeat their grade level.  Act 66 required the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to develop and post online a standard form for parents/guardians to notify school entities of their child’s plan to remain in the school and/or current grade level for the 2021-22 school year.

PDE posted the form and guidance on July 6, 2021.  To access the form, please click the link below.
