2021-22 Student Handbook

All policies and procedures are listed in the handbook. Please reference the Table of Contents for guidance concerning a particular issue area.

We hope this will be a useful guide as we begin a year of working and learning together. The purpose of this handbook is to provide you with helpful information about day-to-day procedures at our school as well as important school policies. As you will see our school is committed to providing a learning environment founded on research and exemplary teaching methods.

The handbook contains important information for you about our operational policies, procedures and school expectations. Please take some time to read and review the handbook with your child.

Parents play an important role in making this school great. We cannot achieve our goals without you. Therefore, we greatly encourage parent participation in all class programs and extracurricular activities. Please refer to the handbook during the school year, and feel free to contact us with questions or concerns.

School Bus Information

Parents have multiple ways to communicate with the School District of Philadelphia:

Please note: The service vendor assigned to Pan American Academy Charter School is Total Transportation. They service routes 7520, 7521, 7523 & 7524.

Parent Flat Rate Program

The School District of Philadelphia has launched a pilot to provide a $150 monthly payment (upto $1,500 total) per household for the 2020-21 school calendar year to parents who choose to opt out of bus, van or cab assignment for their child to be transported to and from school. This will begin when school is open for some form of in-person learning. This is not applicable when school is 100% virtual.
