RESOURCES FOR LEARNING:
The State Department of Education has issued planning documents for school districts related to learning this fall; see below.
Schools are expected to plan for three options--school in session, distance learning, and a hybrid that could include up to 50% of students at a given time being in the buildings while the remaining students are distance learning. All Minnesota schools are expected to be ready to switch between these three options at any time during the school year depending on local and state conditions.
In addition to this, the district will also "offer distance learning to enrolled students who may be medically vulnerable or otherwise unwilling to return to in-person or hybrid learning."
Because of our work over this spring, we are confident in our preparation so far for the fall. As of August 11, 2020 we expect to open River Bluff Education Center and Tower View Alternative Center with our Hybrid Model.
We appreciate the feedback that you have given to us and want to make certain that you have opportunities to provide more input. do not hesitate to contact our office. This feedback helps us as we make plans for this fall and how to best support our students. We know this has been a difficult time for many of our families. Together, we can determine how to best serve all individuals.
