SFCL New Family Open House
Spring-Ford Area School District is pleased to offer Spring-Ford Cyber Learning for the 2021-2022 school year! SFCL has been developed by the Spring-Ford Curriculum and Instruction Department and will be taught by the Spring-Ford teachers your child already knows. SFCL offers students the opportunity to engage in personalized education from home, with the added benefit of being eligible to participate in many SFASD extra-curricular activities.
The goal of SFCL is ultimately to provide a seamless blending of online and brick-and-mortar offerings for all students. The expansion to include all grades gives families an alternative to brick-and-mortar schools, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
