sg r-ii fall 2020 instructional options
As we continue to plan for the 2020-2021 school year, we know that we have many families whose students are ready to be back in the classroom, as well as many families who are apprehensive about sending their children to a traditional school setting. We want to do our best to address and assure our families of our dedication to the safety and well-being of our students and staff, and therefore, our schools have identified various instructional options to offer our students. These options vary depending upon the grade level of our students. Linked below, you will find an informational flyer for our Kindergarten - 5th Grade instructional options, and a flyer for our 6th - 12th Grade instructional options. Families with preschool students and children in our Early Childhood Special Education program will receive a separate application.
- Kindergarten - 5th Instructional Options Flyer: These grade levels will offer three options: Traditional, Blended and AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction, or virtual learning). The application for K - 5 is linked at the bottom of the flyer. If you have more than one child attending one of our elementary schools, we ask that you fill out the application for each child and indicate which of these three options you feel would be best for your child. Please read the informational flyer and application carefully, as there are many details included that might affect your decision.
- 6th - 12th Instructional Options Flyer: These grade levels will offer two options: Blended Learning and AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction, or virtual learning). The application is linked at the bottom of the flyer. Again, please read the informational flyer and application carefully, as there are many details included that might affect your decision. At this time, we only need you to fill out the application if you are choosing the AMI option for your student. If you would like the Blended Learning option, we do not need you to fill out a form at this time.
One important aspect to highlight is that this year, all virtual learning will follow the regular grade level curriculum, and students will be held accountable according to normal grading criteria. More information on this can be found in the informational flyers linked below.
As our families begin to look at these options, we know you will have many questions. This is new for all of us, and if you have any questions, please reach out to your building administration. We ask that families who can fill out these applications electronically do so by Sunday, Aug. 2. Beginning Monday, Aug. 3, the building offices will be open, and families who need a physical copy of the application or who would like to fill out the applications over the phone can do so at that time.
We are working diligently on crafting our district’s 2020-2021 Reopening Plan, and Version 1 of this plan will be shared with families on Friday, Aug. 7, 2020. This plan will include further information on health and safety considerations for returning to school, as well as information regarding scheduling and programming. We will update our families as we have more information.
