9-8-20 — Learning Resumes, in Person, Online

Sept. 8, 2020 ~ Thousands of district students tuned in to their schoolwork Sept. 8, as the 2020-21 school year began. Elementary students started with a hybrid schedule of two days per week in the classroom, and three days of learning at home. Students in middle and high school began the year with remote learning from home.

Wearing colorful and unique masks, and carrying new school supplies, elementary students arrived at school to meet their new teachers and classmates.

More than 7,600 students across the district signed up for remote learning for the entire first semester. They will be supported by more than 500 general education staff members and numerous special services staff members.“For this fall, no matter what the learning environment is, teachers will be interacting with kids. Educators will be providing instruction, and we’ll be working as hard as we can to support them in that journey,” said Assistant Superintendent for Learning Services Brent Yeager, during the Sept. 3 board of education meeting.
