2020-2021 Learning Scenarios

  • 2020-2021 Learning Scenarios

    Scenario 1 - Face-to-Face

    • Students in building. We will use additional cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

    • Students will be provided an iPad (grades K-2) or Chromebook (grades 3-12).

    • Schools with one positive case of COVID-19 may switch to Intermittent Remote Learning for up to 72 hours. If two positive cases of COVID-19 are found within 72 hours, that school would switch to Intermittent Remote Learning for at least 14 days.

    • If community spread is occurring in Grand Forks County, we would transition to Remote Learning for all schools, where students are learning virtually from home. We would transition back to face-to-face when conditions are deemed safe.

    Scenario 2 - Remote Learning

    • Students will be provided an iPad (grades K-2) or Chromebook (grades 3-12).

    • Students will be taught / coached by a licensed professional in a virtual classroom or academy.

    • Students will receive both synchronous and asynchronous instruction and support.

    • If you choose to enroll your student in remote learning, you are committed to that model of education for an extended time period. 

      • Elementary students may apply for re-enrollment at the end of the first (November 20th) and second (February 26th) trimester.

      • Secondary students may apply for re-enrollment at the end of first semester (January 15th).

    • Enrollment in face-to-face learning will be determined on section sizes and space availability.

    Synchronous: Scheduled times when a class is required to meet online. Think of it as "live."

    • High school students will use synchronous lessons, coursework, and/or meetings a minimum of 20% of their learning time.

    • Middle school students will use synchronous lessons, coursework, and/or meetings a minimum of 20% of their learning time. They will also engage in regular homeroom activities.

    • Elementary school students will use synchronous learning and/or meetings at least 20% of their academic time. They will also engage in weekly social-emotional learning activities

    Asynchronous: Learning that can be completed at any time with capability for remote communication and assessment. Think of it as, "on demand." 

    • This includes using email or other software system that deliver, track, and manage classes or projects for learning at preferred access times for learners.
