School Model for the 2020-2021 School Year

Based on the Parent Survey results, our school will be implementing Model 3A.

Model 3: Six day rotation with one to two days per week, three in-person student groups

  • This model assumes that a school can serve at any given time at least a third of students who choose in-person learning.
  • Because this model does not provide consistency in the day of the week students are in school, the is model is only for middle and high schools and not elementary schools.
  • In this model, there are three in-person student groups and one fully remote student group.
  • This model uses a six day rotation, allowing students to receive in-person learning two days and remote learning four days in a six day cycle. Students will participate in remote learning for non-in person days.
    • Model 3 A: students attend in-person on an alternating cycle so students will be in-person once every three days.
    • Model 3 B: students attend in-person two days in a row on an alternating cycle so students will be in-person for two days and remote for four days.
  • Students whose families choose fully remote learning will receive remote instruction every day.
