Hybrid Without Lunch
We will begin the year in a hybrid model (combination of in-person and remote instruction) without lunch. Below is a general overview of the model that includes information about grouping students, the frequency that courses will meet in-person versus remote, the daily schedule for classes and grading.
- Students will be divided into two groups (A and B) for the purpose of providing access to in-person instruction, while also complying with the health and safety guidelines related to social distancing and capacity limits. We are currently working on the creation of these groups, and will keep our families updated on our progress.
- Students who we determine will benefit from additional support and interventions may be included in both groups. Most of these students will be the ones who spend the majority of their day in self-contained settings (Foundations classes, HAVEN, etc.).
- Each class will meet in-person twice a week and remotely two or three times per week.
- On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, classes will be held from 8 a.m. to 12:56 p.m., with early bird taking place from 7:15 a.m. to 7:53 a.m. and intervention/remediation taking place from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
- On Wednesday, all classes (A and B) will be held remotely from 8 a.m. to 11:25 a.m., with early bird taking place from 7:30 a.m. to 7:55 a.m. Afternoons will be focused on opportunities for teacher collaboration, as well as intervention and remediation activities. Attendance will be taken, and teachers will decide on the instructional practice. For example, students may engage in one-on-one or smaller group intervention, while others engage in asynchronous learning.
- Teachers will share the instructional goals, plans and expectations for their classes. They will also communicate information about assignments and assessments.
- Grading has been returned to local control - i.e., the state’s “do not harm” directive from the spring is no longer in effect. Teachers will provide information about how grades will be administered in accordance with the district’s grading philosophy.
