Uniform Policy

The Uniform Policy can be found on pages 28 of the Student and Family Handbook.

It is expected that all students will be dressed in full uniform at all times, starting on the first day of school, until the last day of classes. Full uniform must be worn for all school events unless otherwise indicated. No outside jackets, hoodies, accessories are permitted to be worn in school as part of the uniform. Students are expected to store any additional items of clothing on their classroom hooks or in their locker. Students should not be leaving uniform items in their lockers to change into once they arrive at school. It is important for parents to monitor children as they leave for school in the morning to ensure they are in full uniform. 


Student Handbook Guía del estudiante y de la familia

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.

Please note: The service vendors assigned to Pan American Academy Charter School are Philly Transportation and Total Transportation. They service routes 7521 & 7523.

Parent Flat Rate Program

The School District of Philadelphia will continue the program to provide a monthly payment to eligible parents who choose to opt out of District bus, van or cab assignments and instead drive their child to and from school.  All registered families will receive $300 per month ($3,000 for the school year) for transporting their child to and from school.  We also offer the option for families to receive $150 per month ($1,500 for the school year) to transport their child to school in the morning but still utilize bus, van or cab services in the afternoon.  There is no option for utilizing busing services in the AM and the parent/guardian transports the student in the afternoon.

In contrast to recent years, an application will not be required for students that were registered in the program at the conclusion of the 2023-24 school year.  If still eligible, these students will automatically be rolled over into the program for the 2024-25 school year.  Please note, if you were not registered in 2023-24, or you were removed during the school year and wish to participate once again, an Enrollment Form must be submitted. To apply for the 2024-25 school year please submit an Enrollment Form (Application). The Application Period for 2024-25 is June 1 – October 1, 2024.
