    Teaching & Learning - Hybrid Instruction

    School Reopening 2020-2021

Hybrid Instruction (in-person and remote)

    1. Elementary School Hybrid Plan
      1. Elementary schools should follow an A/B day schedule beginning with grade five and including subsequent lower grades until required population reductions are met. The goal is to keep primary, ENL, and self-contained special education students in school full-time if at all possible, even if split among locations within the building of attendance.

    2. Secondary School Hybrid Plan
      1. School would follow an A/B day schedule that follows the class schedule for fully present instruction. Provisions/adjustments would be needed for alternate day classes such as Physical Education and laboratory sections.
      2. Students not in attendance could be assigned required asynchronous work or synchronous, live virtual attendance could be required.
      3. Traffic flow/one-way protocols would be established in all settings.
      4. Virtual daily homeroom attendance for students to be mandated.
      5. Academic integrity, attendance, and participation are supported by live mic/live camera.
      6. ENL and self-contained special education students are advised to remain in school full-time if at all possible, even if split among locations within the building of attendance.

    3. Days of Virtual Attendance
      1. Teachers should use a combination of synchronous and asynchronous instructional practices. Students will be expected to complete work for each of their assigned classes during their regularly scheduled class periods. With the understanding that the established schedule will not require students to be virtually present for nine consecutive periods of instruction on any given day, teachers have the option to require virtual student attendance from home. One such schedule would allow teachers to require student presence on an odd/even class period basis on alternate days.

    4. Scheduling Considerations
      1. Alternating days of attendance (A/B day) will be established by household district-wide such that all students in any given family will follow the same attendance schedule. Provisions would be made at the secondary level for alternating live and remote participation in alternate day classes such as Physical Education and science labs.
