BOE votes to continue in “Yellow” with 2nd day supports
The Board of Education met on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd. After careful consideration of survey results, community input, staff input, emails and listening to all stakeholders, they voted to continue with the “Yellow” hybrid model.
What does this mean for you and your student(s)
- The district will continue to run school using the yellow/hybrid (reduced class size) model through the first semester (December 17th). This is a continuation of the A and B cohort schedules.
- All virtual learning students will continue programming as currently scheduled.
- PK programming will continue as scheduled.
- For K-6 students, 100 Elk will be extended by two weeks (through October 8th).
- For K-6 students, the district will shift resources from Friday and Afterschool Project Dream programming to provide second day support from October 12th to December 17th. We are currently working with partners for how this programming might look.
- K-6 Project Dream (in person) after school and Friday programming will no longer be offered.
- For K-6 Project Dream (virtual) programming will continue as scheduled.
- For 7-12 students, In-Person Friday School will be offered through Project Dream for students who need to do credit recovery.
- If your child was registered for Project Dream programs you will be receiving more information directly from Project Dream staff.
The decision comes in considering both the health/safety needs as well as the instructional experience for students. Conversations will continue regarding the need for additional support for technology for at home learning, potential for future afterschool/Friday programming, improved communications and considering how else we sustain a rich learning experience for students this year.
We are exceptionally grateful for all of the partners in our community who are stretching their current resources and programs to support our students, families and staff.
We are thankful for staff, parents and students for their ability to adjust as we continue to flow from different instructional programming throughout the year.
