Section 520.1 of the Pennsylvania Public School Code (School Code) provides the following:

(a) Whenever an emergency shall arise which the board of school directors of any school district in the performance of its duties could not during the prescribed length of school days, number of days per week, anticipate or foresee, and which emergency shall result in any such school district being unable to provide for the attendance of all pupils or usual hours of classes, it shall be found as a fact by the school directors of any school district and so recorded on the minutes of a regular or special meeting of such board and certified to the Superintendent of Public Instruction1, and such board of school directors, subject to the approval of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, shall have power to put into operation in such school district any one or more of the temporary provisions hereinafter provided for, but in no event shall such temporary provisions remain in effect for a period of more than four years after they are first put into effect.

Instructional Models for 2021-2022

The Jefferson-Morgan School District has decided on 2 educational options for all students PK-12 for the 2021-2022 school year.


Jefferson-Morgan Students have the following education options:


Traditional School Option- Students follow the school calendar with in-person learning. Students would be expected to attend school daily unless they have an excuse. Hybrid learning is not an option for the 2021-2022 school year. Students will not be able to access their classes virtually from home unless a remote/FIDS day is called for students. Students may only switch to cyber learning at the end of each grading period (special circumstances may be approved by the building principal).



Cyber School Option- Students follow the school calendar from home while participating in the JM eLearning Cyber Academy. Synchronous and Asynchronous options are available for students K-12. Students may only switch back to traditional learning at the end of each grading period (special circumstances may be approved by the building principal).


If you want your child to participate in the Traditional School Option, you do not have to do anything.


If you want your child to participate in our Cyber School Option, we ask you to sign up your child as soon as possible to allow for proper planning.


If you have any questions, please reach out to Brandon Robinson at [email protected].
