Scenario 2: Hybrid Model
Because of health and safety concerns, physical distancing requirements, transportation issues, and other concerns, we may use a Hybrid Model where students would have in-school learning for half of the time and remote learning for the other half. In both cases, when students were remote, they would have daily assignments, daily opportunities for connections with educators, recorded and/or live sessions, graded work, and consistent expectations across the district. We are looking at two versions.
Hybrid Version 1: Two Days In-School/Two Days Remote/One Remote Day for special activities
In this model, students K-12 would be split into two cohorts by family (mostly alphabetically). Group A would come to school in-person on Mondays and Thursdays. Group B would come in on Tuesdays and Fridays. Wednesdays would be remote for all and would include both academic assignments and chances for specials, special events, advisories, school projects, counseling, and special education programs. Remote learning days in the hybrid model would include daily assignments, opportunities for live and recorded sessions, and expectations for high-quality work. In-school days would be long blocks for middle and high school, and would be focused on key ELA and Math development for elementary.
Hybrid Version 2: Week In School/Week Out Remotely
In this version, the two student groups (A and B) would come to school for a week at a time, but we would still maintain Wednesdays as a full Remote Day. This is important to provide activities that will not be able to happen on in-school days. Special events and additional cleaning would also happen on Wednesdays.
Full Remote Learning would still be an option regardless of overall plan.
