Flexible Framework

  • The division has designed four instructional models, called our Flexible Framework, to support student learning and success for all students in grades PreK-12 throughout the 2020-21 school year – whether they are learning in classrooms or at home. The models are designed to provide rigorous and engaging instruction while also protecting the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. The Framework (Option 1) allows the division to move between models quickly in the event of positive COVID-19 cases within the community/individual schools or other factors. The division’s goal is to provide families ample notice prior to moving to a less restrictive model within the Flexible Framework. Each model within the framework is described below.

Framework Models

  • Traditional   Hybrid Leveled Remote
    All students attend school 5 days a week. PreK-12 students are divided into two cohorts. Cohorts alternate attending school, in person, two days a week and participating remotely three days a week. PreK-5 students attend school in the Hybrid Model (two days a week in person and three days remote three days per week). Grades 6-12 students participate remotely five days a week. All students learn from home five days a week.
    *Remote learning will be different and more robust than the short-term emergency learning students engaged in last spring.

    Additionally, we recognize that we have staff members and students who are especially susceptible to COVID-19 and would be at risk within the Flexible Framework. Therefore, we are also developing a Virtual Academy for students in grades PreK-12 as a second option.
