  • Coronavirus Closure

    UPDATED: APRIL 3, 2020: All BASD Schools are closed indefinitely due to COVID-19 pending further direction.  ALL school buildings and facilities are CLOSED – which in turn includes ALL playgrounds/tennis courts/basketball courts/etc. 

    ONLY those personnel who have been deemed essential (and have been notified as such) have access to our buildings and facilities at this time.  Our ENTIRE team – including our full team of teachers - is working remotely with access to their classroom voicemail, BASD emails, computers, etc.  Additionally, we apologize, but they do NOT have access to their own or student personal items left behind at BASD buildings or facilities.

    Mamma Mia Postponed  

    Due to the health crisis, we are currently working with the Boyertown Area School District and our licensing company, MTI, to reschedule the upcoming performances. At this time, all sales have been suspended. Within the next two weeks, we will have a clearer picture of when it’s safe to return to school. We will send out an email and post updates on the webpage with our plan for new show dates, times, and ticket redistribution as soon as we know when we are heading back to school. We are still looking forward to sharing this spectacular show with the Boyertown community in the upcoming month. We appreciate your understanding and support!

    Cyber Series

     

    Did You Know? Video 1: Cyber/Charter/Public/Private

    Did You Know? Video 2: Reasons and Data

    Stanford's CREDO Study 2019

     

    In a first of its kind series for BASD, we would like to educate our learning community at large, about outside cyber and charter schools, their impact on our district, and our plans to bring our students home. 

    What is the difference between a cyber school and a charter school?  Are they truly “free”?  How many students from our district attend outside cyber/charter schools?  Why do families choose these options? How do the PA cyber and charter schools perform as compared to BASD?  Are these schools subject to the same rules and regulations that public schools must adhere to?  And more…

    At this point, you may be asking yourself, “Why do I care?”  Quite simply, because as a taxpayer, you are funding more than $2.0M per year in BASD costs associated with these outside placements.  We’re guessing that we have your attention now!

    Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing short videos via FB, Twitter (via a link), and our website aimed at educating our district community on all of this and more.  We will also introduce you to Berks Online Learning – our own cyber school offering.  Finally, we will talk to you about the efforts underway to bring our students back to the Boyertown Learning Community – whether via our brick and mortar buildings or our own, much more cost-effective, cyber opportunity.  Stay tuned…we’re never too old to learn!!

    Map

    Here is a link to the most up-to-date version of the Approved BASD Catchments by school building for all students in grades K – 8 for the 2020-2021 School Year.

     School Assignment Map as of 01/06/2020


    Catchments are color-coded by school.  Schools are grouped by elementary and middle school categories.  You can show the areas for both middle schools and elementary schools at the same time or choose to look at just one of the categories by checking and unchecking boxes.  You can type in your specific address and confirm your school assignment for each child by clicking on the magnifying glass.

    Please note that the school assignment is based upon the child’s primary residence as listed in Infinite Campus and documented via proofs of residency and any appropriate legal documents.

    If after using the map, you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at  BASDregistration@boyertownasd.org


    DISCLAIMER: This map was drawn for BASD using Google Maps.  BASD cannot guarantee the accuracy of the Google Maps tool.  Final school assignments are at the discretion of BASD based upon the Board Approved Scenario 2 Rightsizing Project.  As of the 2020-2021 school year, BASD no longer has “gray areas”, nor do we accept deviation requests.
