Deadlines to Switch Between Distance and In-Person Learning

Distance Learning - Deadlines to Switch - In-Person Learning

As shared in our July 6th Action plan, students may switch between learning options (distance or in-person) at particular points in the instructional year. 

  • For elementary and middle students, that will be at the completion of each 9-week instructional period. 
  • For high school students, that point is at the completion of the first semester. 
  • Exceptions can be made if determined by an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) committee, a Section 504 committee, or at the principal’s discretion.

If you are considering a change, please be sure to read the expectations for distance learning and about the precautions in place for in-person learning. If you want your child to remain in his/her current enrollment, no action is needed.

Elementary and Middle School Students

The end of the first grading period is October 9th. If any elementary (Pre-K to 5th grade) or middle (grades 6-8) school student wants to switch from in-person to distance learning or from distance learning to in-person, they must submit an enrollment change request to their school between September 14 and September 25. All enrollment changes must be submitted no later than Friday, September 25, 2020.

As before, students must commit to their learning choice for 9-weeks at a time. The next opportunity to switch would be at the end of the fall semester. If a parent/guardian selects to switch between in-person and digital instruction, their child may have a different teacher. 

Each school will be sending out information regarding enrollment changes.  Please visit your child’s school website for additional details.  If the school’s process for enrollment changes is not completed, your student will remain in their current enrollment as of September 25th (in-person or distance learning). If you want your child to remain in his/her current enrollment, no action is needed. Please contact the school with any questions. 

Any enrollment changes would go into effect starting on Tuesday, October 13th. For example, if your child had been enrolled in Distance Learning and you enrolled them in-person between September 14 and 25, then your child would return to school in-person starting on October 13, 2020.
