Hybrid Learning

Computer and School. Hybrid.

In the hybrid model, school populations will be split into cohorts to accommodate a smaller capacity, with only one cohort attending in person on any given day. Inside the schools, students and staff will follow strict 6-foot social distancing protocols and will be required to wear masks, along with other health and safety protocols, to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.  The Hybrid Learning Model will place students in a rotation with some students attending school on one day while the other students participate in a distance learning day in an ongoing rotation. 

Hybrid Goals

  • Maximize the time students are able to learn in person, while minimizing the risk to health and safety of students and staff;
  • Make the transition between learning in school and at home as continuous and predictable as possible;
  • Ensure learning is equitable and accessible to all students. 

Constraints 

  • Teacher:student ratio
  • Number of staff
  • Available space

Because these constraints affect each school level differently, hybrid plans may differ between elementary school, middle school and high school. 

The district has invested in several online tools to improve the experience students will have learning at home, whether as part of the hybrid plan or the full-time distance learning option.
