Important Message about our School Model
Thank you all for a strong start to the school year. We have an overall attendance of 93% and rising! (This compares to many districts in the spring who had between 50-70% attendance.) Thank you for ensuring your scholars are online and ready each day!
After gathering feedback from families and staff, reviewing local health data, and assessing our logistical ability to switch to a hybrid model in October, we have decided to stay in a distance learning model until January 4th. After that, we will re-evaluate by December 18th to decide regarding what we will do after winter break. This will give us time to continue to improve our distance model and to work to ensure all students are learning in this new model.
We are thrilled at the level of student engagement, attendance, and high-quality instruction within our distance learning model. Our team has worked relentlessly to create a model that works to ensure all students are growing! As we progress, we will continue to reevaluate our program and work to ensure we are providing the best education we can for all students. As always, we are committed to continuous improvement. If you haven’t already filled out our survey, please take the time to send in your thoughts. Your feedback is important to us!
As scheduled, we will gather additional feedback from staff and families, as well as monitor public health data in early December to decide our instructional model after winter break on January 4th. We will communicate that decision with families by December 18th.
