Hybrid Learning

The hybrid model is a mix of in-person and at-home learning that allows us to divide our students into two different groups to reduce the number of people in our buildings at one time. This allows us to operate our buildings at about 50% capacity to improve physical distancing. Check out other safety measures in place to help keep our students safe.

Students would attend school two days a week in either an “A” group or a “B” group. Students in “Group A” will attend school Monday and Wednesday while “Group B” is learning from home, and then they’ll switch on Tuesday and Thursday. “C” days will be a distance learning day for all students so buildings can be cleaned, and teachers can make personal connections with students and collaborate with colleagues.

View the slides from the 8.6.20 School Board presentation for more about what Hybrid Learning will look like at the elementary, middle and high school levels. 

Elementary Schools  |  Middle Schools |  High School  | At-Home Learning Days


 

Elementary Hybrid 

  • Students stay together in their classroom with their teacher throughout the day 

 


Middle School Hybrid

Advisory Bubble Model (Used Sept. 10-Oct. 14): 

  • All instruction is delivered online. 
  • Students stay together with a small cohort of students in an advisory classroom with their teacher for much of the day.
  • Students interact with advisory teacher and specialists.
  • This time will be prioritized to prepare students for online learning: Pre-assessment, MAP, Schoology orientation, online procedures, digital citizenship

Hybrid Full Schedule: 

  • Instruction is blended, live and flexible learning is available. 
  • Students follow their typical schedule and receive in-person instruction, support, differentiation, intervention and enrichment

 


High School Hybrid

  • Students have 3 classes for first quarter. Each class meets for 80 minutes in-person on “A” and “B” days.
  • Courses switch for second quarter.
  • Classes meet in the morning. Lunch and office hours are available in the afternoon for students who need it.

 


At-Home Learning Days

All students engage in online, at-home learning three days a week. At-home learning supports what is being taught in the classroom. We’ve improved our online learning format. Here’s what you can expect:

Connections

  • Both virtual, face-to-face engagement and independent learning time
  • Additional time for personal check-ins with students on “C” days
  • Organized, proactive mental health support

Engagement

  • New tools and resources designed for online learning
  • Live learning opportunities along with recorded and “flipped” lessons and videos
  • Options for small group and whole class virtual learning
  • Regular feedback provided from teachers to students
  • 100% standards-based instruction

Consistency

  • Consistent learning expectations between grade levels, departments and buildings
  • Specific online tools and platforms, and support and training for teachers 
  • Common planning time for teachers to collaborate and align schedules

Communication

  • One landing spot for consistent communication for families 
  • Organized and consistent posting of assignments and messages for both students and parents
  • How-to tutorials for students and parents on all online learning tools
