The draft plan, outlined in this document, is not an emergency or crisis education program, and it bears little resemblance to the Virtual Learning of the 2019-20 school year. The models presented here, and the resulting compacted curricula will be comprehensive, rigorous, and adaptable to either an in-person or an online setting.
The use of consistent curricula, Schoology as the Learning Platform, and best practice strategies for the delivery of instruction will provide equitable access to rigorous education for all students, regardless of whether they are learning in a classroom or at home.
And because the District recognizes that the Spring closures resulted in learning loss for some students, the 2020-21 year will emphasize standards and skills, particularly in math and literacy, that are essential for students to master. In addition to the academic component, there is a primary area of concern for social emotional learning that we have also incorporated.
The health and safety of students and staff have been our first priority, and will remain so as we continue to work toward re-entry to the school buildings.
