The City of Allentown is teaming up with CareerLink and the Allentown School District to give local kids a chance at getting some work experience. The mentorship program could come to the city soon.

The Allentown School District is the last in the Lehigh Valley to move to some in-school learning. A hot topic at a recent board meeting was whether parents would have to buy uniforms for kids with only a few weeks left.

The help wanted sign is up again at the Allentown School District. The school board is searching for a new superintendent as its current leader, Thomas Parker, is set to leave the district next month.

It’s been a year since Allentown schools were open. When the pandemic hit, the Allentown School District sent more than 17,000 students home to grapple with learning virtually.

The Allentown School District appears poised to begin hybrid-learning learning next month. It’s the last district in the Valley still completely virtual after being shuttered for a year.
