  • As we continue to navigate the challenges and ongoing uncertainties of COVID-19 we know the 2020-21 school year will be unlike any other. No matter what the public health landscape looks like and what limitations may be placed on instruction, our commitment will continue to be on teaching and learning for the coming school year. The needs of all students will continue to be met through meaningful and purposeful instruction regardless of the delivery method.

     

    When Governor Reynolds announced that schools would close for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, the Department of Education also announced that school districts would be required to complete a Return to Learn (RTL) plan for the 2020-21 school year that was due July 1, 2020.

     

    Those plans must include contingencies for the following delivery models: 

    • On-Site Learning - A full return to school
    • Required Continuous Learning - Remote learning if school is closed again
    • Hybrid Learning - A combination of the two if only a certain percentage of students can attend on a given day
