Flexible Instructional Day (FID) - Student

Overview

With the passage of Act 64 of 2019 (Act 64), Section 1506 (24 P.S. §15-1506) was added to the Pennsylvania Public School Code (School Code), enabling public school entities the opportunity to develop a FID program to meet the 180 instructional day requirement of Section 1501 of the School Code (24 P.S. §15-1501). A FID program may be online, offline, or a combination of the two.

A Flexible Instructional Day (FID) is a program available to public school entities to be used as an alternate approach to delivering instruction if a circumstance arises that prevents instruction in a customary manner.

For more information, please see the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) website.
