INSTRUCTION
Elementary and Secondary
Home Education Programs
Children residing in the district may comply with compulsory education laws through private
tutoring or through home schooling programs (schooling by a parent or guardian or other person
having legal custody of the child), rather than by attending district schools.
Home education students (those being educated by private tutor or in a home schooling
program) are not enrolled in the North Penn School district; therefore, they are not eligible to
participate in school district courses. However, they may use school libraries if they make
arrangements in advance with the superintendent’s office. Home school students may also
participate in extra-curricular activities by contacting the principal of the school that they would
attend if they were enrolled in the district.
The district will not award a diploma or otherwise acknowledge the completion of a home
education student’s program of studies.
Definitions
“Home Education Program” shall mean a program conducted by the parent or guardian or such
person having legal custody of the child or children. A home education program shall not be
considered a nonpublic school.
“Appropriate Education”, as applied to a home education program, shall mean a program
consisting of instruction in the required subjects for the time required by the Pennsylvania Public
School Code and in which the student demonstrates sustained progress in the overall program.
“Supervisor”, as applied to a home education program, shall mean the parent or guardian or
such person having legal custody of the child or children who shall be responsible for the
provision of instruction, provided that such person has a high school diploma or its equivalent.
Procedure for Instituting a Home Education Program
CONTINUED
6175(b)

8. That the home education program shall comply with the provisions of Section 1327.1 of
the Pennsylvania Public School Code and that the notarized affidavit shall be
satisfactory evidence thereof
NOTE: If the home education is to continue beyond the initial year, a revised affidavit
shall be filed with superintendent prior to August 1 of each successive year that the
home education program is in effect.
9. The affidavit shall contain a certification to be signed by the supervisor that the
supervisor and all adults living in the home (where the program is conducted) have not
been convicted of the criminal offenses enumerated in Subsection E of Section 111 of
the Pennsylvania Public School Code within five years immediately preceding the date
of the affidavit.
Requirements for a Home Education Program
1. A child or children enrolled in a home education program under the direction of a
supervisor must be provided a minimum of 180 days of instruction or 900 hours of
instruction per year at the elementary level (Gr. K-6) or 990 hours per year at the
secondary level (Gr. 7-12).
2. Required courses at the elementary level shall include the following: English (to include
spelling, reading, and writing), Arithmetic, Science, Geography, History of the United
States and Pennsylvania, Civics, Safety Education (including the regular and continuous
instruction in the dangers and prevention of fires), Health and Physiology, Physical
Education, Music, and Art.

CONTINUED
6175(c)
4. A home education program may include, at the discretion of the supervisor: Economics,
Biology, Chemistry, Foreign Languages, Trigonometry, or other age appropriate courses
as contained in Chapter 5 (Curriculum Requirements) of the State Board of Education.
5. The district shall, at the request of the supervisor, lend to the home education program
copies of the district’s planned courses, textbooks, and other curriculum materials
appropriate to the student’s age and grade level. Supervisors who intend on having their
students participate in statewide tests administered by the district at no cost should
notify the district’s Home Education Program Supervisor early in the school year so that
the school can order extra tests and make arrangements for where they will be
administered.
Evaluation Requirements
1. After filing the affidavit and commencing home education, the supervisor must
demonstrate that appropriate education is occurring by maintaining a portfolio for each
student containing the following:
a. A log made contemporaneously with the instruction which designates, by title, the
reading materials used, and samples of any writings, worksheets, workbooks, or
creative materials used or developed by the student
b. In grades 3, 5, and 8, results of nationally normed standardized achievement
tests in reading/language arts and mathematics or the results of statewide tests
administered in these grade levels.
2. A teacher or administrator who evaluates a portfolio at the elementary level or secondary
level shall meet the requirements established in law.
3. An annual written evaluation of the student’s educational progress as determined by a
licensed clinical or school psychologist, a teacher certified by the Commonwealth, or a
nonpublic school teacher or administrator is required. The evaluation shall be based, in
part, on an interview of the child and a review of the portfolio and shall certify whether or
not an appropriate education is occurring. At the request of the supervisor, persons with
other qualifications may conduct the evaluation with the prior consent of the
superintendent. In no event shall the evaluator be the supervisor or his/her spouse.
4. An evaluator’s certification stating that an appropriate education is occurring for the
school year under review shall be provided to the superintendent by June 30 of each
year.
If the supervisor fails to submit the certification due on June 30, the
superintendent shall send a letter by certified mail (return receipt requested) to the
supervisor of the home education program, stating that the certification is past due and
notifying the supervisor to submit the certification within ten (10) days of receipt of the
certified letter. If the certification is not submitted within that time, the board shall
provide for a proper hearing.
5. If the superintendent has a reasonable belief, at any time during the school year, that
appropriate education may not be occurring in the home education program, or that the
home education program is out of compliance with any other provisions of the
Pennsylvania Public School Code, he may submit a letter to the supervisor, by certified
CONTINUED
6175(d)
mail (return receipt requested) requiring that an evaluation be conducted and that an
evaluator’s certification stating that an appropriate education is occurring for the school
year under review, be submitted to the district within thirty (30) days of the receipt of the
certified letter. The certified letter shall include the basis for the superintendent’s
reasonable belief. If required tests have not been administered at the time of the receipt
of the certified letter by the supervisor, the supervisor shall submit the other required
documentation to the evaluator and shall submit the test results to the evaluator with the
completed documentation at the conclusion of the school year. If the certification is not
submitted to the superintendent within thirty (30) days of receipts of the certified letter,
the board shall provide for a proper hearing in accordance with the law.
Hearing Procedures
1. When a hearing is required, the board shall provide for a proper hearing by a duly
qualified and impartial hearing examiner within thirty (30) days.
2. The hearing examiner may not be an officer, employe or agent of the district,
Montgomery County Intermediate Unit or the Department of Education.
3. The hearing examiner shall render a decision within fifteen (15) days of the hearing
except that he/she may require the establishment of a remedial education plan mutually
agreed to by the superintendent and supervisor of the home education program which
shall continue the home education program.
4. The decision of the hearing examiner may be appealed by either the supervisor of the
home education program or the superintendent to the Secretary of Education,
Commonwealth Court or court of common pleas. The home education program may
continue during the time of any appeal.
5. If the hearing examiner finds that the evidence does not indicate that appropriate
education is taking place in the home education program, that program for the child shall
be out of compliance with the requirements of the Pennsylvania Public School Code
regarding compulsory school attendance and home education programs. The student
shall then be promptly enrolled in the district, a nonpublic school or a licensed private
academic school.
6. At such time as the child’s home education program has been determined to be out of
compliance, the supervisor or spouse of the supervisor of the home education program
shall be ineligible to supervise a home education program for that child for a period of 12
months from the date of such determination.
Students with a Disability
Section 1327 of the Pennsylvania Public School Code provides that a home education program
meets the compulsory attendance requirements for students identified as a student with a
disability pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act only when the program
CONTINUED
6175(e)
addresses the specific needs of the exceptional student and is approved by a teacher with a
valid certificate from the Commonwealth to teach special education or a licensed clinical or
certified school psychologist. Written notification of such approval is submitted with the annual
notarized affidavit.
Transfer of Students in Home Education Programs
1. When a district child or children in a home education program intend to relocate to
another school district within this Commonwealth, the supervisor of the home education
program must apply, by registered mail, thirty (30) days prior to the relocation, to the
superintendent requesting a letter of transfer for the home education program to the
district where the home education program is relocating.
2. The superintendent must issue the letter of transfer thirty (30) days after receipt of the
registered mail request of the home education program supervisor.
3. If the home education program is not in compliance with Section 1327.1 of the
Pennsylvania Public School code, the superintendent must inform the home education
supervisor and the superintendent of the district to which the home education program is
relocating the status of the home education program and the reason for the denial of the
letter of transfer.
4. If the home education program is in hearing procedures, the superintendent must inform
the home education supervisor, the assigned hearing examiner, and the superintendent
of the district to which the home education program is relocating the status of the home
education program and the reason for the denial of the letter of transfer.
5. The letter of transfer must be filed by the supervisor of the home education program with
the superintendent of the new district of residence.
6. In the case of pending proceedings, the new district of residence superintendent shall
continue the home education program until the appeal process is finalized.

INSTRUCTION
Reference: Administrative Regulation #6162
Elementary and Secondary
Instructional Services
[Volunteer Aides] School Volunteers
[In order to provide teachers with more time to teach and allow students to benefit from
the diverse talents and skills within the community, the North Penn School District shall
maintain an active program of school volunteer assistance.
While volunteers shall not be asked to assume the professional responsibilities of the
school staff, carefully selected volunteer aides may be used to help classroom teachers
and other professional employees in the district schools so long as the students
involved are under the general supervision of the teacher or other professional
employee. Under these conditions, a reasonable degree of supervision over the students
may be exercised by the volunteer aide.
The superintendent shall maintain supervisory control over the program and shall
provide for the development of administrative guidelines in the implementation of
volunteer service. General administration of the volunteer program in the district shall
be the responsibility of the coordinator of volunteer services. An advisory committee of
community persons and school employees shall assist in the administration of the
program.
The principal (or designee) shall assume the same general authority over volunteers as
in the case with other employees of each school. A community person, known as a
building coordinator, shall work with the principal in recruiting and assigning aides.
Basically, the requirements of a school volunteer are general good health and moral
character, a sincere interest in children, a belief that they can learn, and a genuine desire
to help in the schools. When training is needed it will be provided by the district.]
The board recognizes that community volunteers can make valuable contributions to the
educational program. The use of community volunteers is endorsed by the board,
subject to legal requirements and administrative procedures.
CONTINUED
6162(b)
The board authorizes the selection and use of parents, community members, and others
as volunteers to assist and supplement regular district staff. The board defines a North
Penn School District Volunteer as an adult individual who provides a service to students,
staff or school/district operations without compensation.
Examples of volunteer
activities include chaperoning field trips, assisting at classroom or school events,
reading in classrooms, shelving books in the library and office support with
photocopying.
A volunteer is not considered an employee of the school district. A volunteer shall
receive no wages or other consideration which has a monetary value for the performance
of volunteer services. The volunteer position is not a right, but rather a privilege that is
conferred by the board and the administration. As such, any volunteer position or
volunteer may be eliminated at any time.
Volunteers do not assume the responsibilities of school district staff but may, under the
direction of the school principal(s), teachers, or coaches, provide assistance in an
approved and appropriate school level activity such as tutoring, demonstrating,
chaperoning, monitoring, speaking, reading, athletic activities and similarly appropriate
activities.
Clearance Requirements
Effective immediately, new volunteers must submit the following clearances to the
district for review prior to commencing their volunteer service:

PA Child Abuse History Clearance;

PA State Police Criminal Background Check; and

Either a North Penn School District Volunteer Affirmation or a Report of Federal
Criminal History Record (fingerprinting)
Upon review of the submitted clearance materials, the district will make a determination
as to whether an individual is properly qualified to serve as a volunteer. Volunteers must
obtain and submit updated clearances to the district every 36 months.
Effective July 1, 2015, the only individuals who will be authorized to serve as volunteers
are those whose background clearances have been submitted, reviewed and approved
by the district and anyone who has been approved by the superintendent to serve as a
Provisional Volunteer.
Provisional Volunteers
The board authorizes the superintendent to approve, on a case-by-case basis,
individuals to serve as provisional volunteers without requiring them to submit
background clearances pursuant to this Policy. The superintendent may only approve
provisional volunteers to the extent permitted by law. An individual may not be approved
as a provisional volunteer if that individual’s service as a volunteer will include being
responsible for the welfare of a child, providing for the care, supervision, guidance or
CONTINUED
6162(c)
control of children or having routine interaction with children. Provisional volunteers
who enter a district school as part of their volunteer service shall be required to submit
to all security protocols required of other school visitors and shall be accompanied by
district staff at all times.

Extended School Care Fees
MONTH / YEAR PRSENTED TO BOARD:
INITIATED BY:
Steve Skrocki
COMMITTEE:
Finance Committee
February 2015
RECOMMENDATION:
Recommend approval to establish the Extended School Care Program fees for the
2015-2016 school year, per the attached fee sheet.
BACKGROUND:
Based upon the costs that will be incurred in the upcoming year (see attachment for the
2015-2016 Extended School Care Fees), the Extended School Care Program needs to
set fees for the 2015-2016 school year. These fees still place us below the competition
in terms of the cost our families pay for their child care services.
The 2015-2016 Extended School Care Program will continue to
offer a hot breakfast program and an afternoon snack, while
including fees for early dismissals on scheduled afternoons. We
will continue to employ a well-trained, qualified and mature staff.
State and county subsidized child care clients are accepted in both the summer camp and
the before and after care Extended School Care programs.

SUBJECT: Bridle Path Basketball Group – Facilities Use Proposal
MONTH/YEAR PRESENTED TO BOARD: February 2015
INITIATED BY:
Thomas Schneider
COMMITTEE: Support Services
RECOMMENDATION:
Recommend approval to allow the Silver Bullets Basketball Group use the Bridle Path gymnasium to play
basketball through the 2014/2015 school year in accordance with School Board Policy 1330.
=============================================================================
BACKGROUND:
Policy 1330, Use of Facilities and Equipment, establishes the process and procedures how outside groups are
able to use or rent North Penn facilities. This policy establishes seven (7) different classes of use definitions.
These classes range from district sponsored groups, local governmental groups, nonprofit groups, for profit
commercial groups and a class for all other groups. The class for all other groups, Class 7, does not outline
fees and requires that the Board of School Directors to approve the use and establish the fee for the group.
We have been requested to bring forth to the Board a request from a group of residents to use the Bridle Path
gymnasium on Saturday mornings (when available) at a rate of $25.00 per evening for the period starting
March through June. The group has provided a liability insurance policy quote and is willing to provide a
certificate of insurance and a list of all persons partaking in the facility use.
The Administration and the Support Services Committee have reviewed and recommended approval of this
request.
