Spring 2021 Elementary and K-8 Instructional Model
Students in grades TK through 8 enrolled at an elementary or K-8 school will be offered their choice of in-person learning (pending county and state approval), distance learning or homeschool for the spring of 2021. Schools will implement a modified learning model for those students choosing in-person or distance learning.
Students selecting modified in-person learning will be assigned to cohort A or B. Both groups will attend class on campus for approximately two and a half hours twice per week. Cohort A will attend Mondays and Tuesdays while cohort B will attend Thursday and Friday mornings.
In the afternoons, a 90 minute period of time offers a chance for teachers to work with those students who choose to remain in full distance learning and also students whose cohort was not on campus that particular day.
Independent (asynchronous) work will be required with differing amounts needed for in-person and distance learning students to meet minimum daily minute requirements. This work could take the form of daily additional independent assignments, traditional homework assignments, or small student group projects.
For all cohorts, Wednesday will be a full asynchronous learning day.
This model minimizes disruptions to classroom assignments. Teachers who are unable to return to in-person teaching may still see class reassignments but most students, including those in distance learning, will be able to continue with their currently assigned teacher.
