How Instruction Can Be Delivered
100% Distance Learning
- 100% Distance Learning - students who will maintain instruction in an exclusively virtual environment. This includes both synchronous and asynchronous components.
- 100% In Person - students in PK and in Moderate/Severe Special Day classes will return to school five days a week for an instructional model that is fully in person.
- Hybrid Learning - students will attend school in person for some portion of the week and maintain distance learning for the other portion of the week. TK-2nd*
Hybrid Instruction Strategy
- Offer in-person learning to every family/student in identified populations who chooses to return.
- Maximize in person instruction for the students.
- Finalize guidance and expectations for in-person vs. virtual learning.
- Plan for targeted intervention and support.
- Draft lessons and instructional plans
- Facilitate deeper learning, focus on literacy, mathematics and developing social emotional literacy and mathematics.
- Incorporate the use of technology so that students can build skills to use while at home in distance context.
- Leveraging outdoor space for instruction, physical activity and recess
- Toolkits and Orientations for all stakeholders.
- Prioritize Home School Strategy.
- Stable Cohorts will follow DPH guidance, and not exceed the maximum number of students who can safely be in attendance at one time.
- At least 2 days a week (in-person learning) for priority groups/ 5 days for PK and Mod/Severe SDC.
- Days in person are consecutive (i.e. Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday)
- Students attend “full day” when they are in person.
