The negotiating team is meeting with the district to discuss in-person instruction for the
2021-2022 school year. Two options will be presented to parents.
Option One: In-person instruction: This traditional model is designed for students coming to
school on campus. Students will attend the full day every day (5 days per week subject to
change based on capacity limitations due to adequate spacing of students), for example, from
8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., which includes break time and lunchtime. The in-person instruction will
be like the traditional instructional model where the teachers are teaching in-person students;
different from the Spring 2021 hybrid model. At any time Public Health directs closure of a
classroom or the entire school due to COVID-19 exposure, students and teachers will revert to
the Distance Learning model for a temporary time.
Option Two: Virtual Learning: Virtual Learning will be offered to Elementary and Secondary
students. However, only core courses and a limited number of electives will be offered at the
Secondary level. This model is for students who will commit to online learning for the duration
of the school year. Students will be assigned to teachers through an online program. They will
be required to log in daily and complete work during the school day in addition to assigned work
by online teachers.
The main purpose the district is sending out the 2021-2022 registration is to determine how
many students will be in-person or online. Once they have the numbers we will be able to
determine what the needs of each instructional model will be. Please look for an email from Dr.
Taylor within the next couple of days.
We are in the early stages of working with the district on the impact of these models to your
working conditions. At this time we do not know who will be teaching what classes or how
teachers will be selected to teach online. We will continue to keep you updated as negotiations
progress. Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14.
