Return to School Transition

Return to School Transition

District 146 administration presented a Return to School Transition plan to the Board of Education on October 12. The plan was approved as presented.

Per the plan, elementary students returned to in-person instruction in a Hybrid Model on November 4, 2020; Central Middle School students returned to a Hybrid Model on November 11, 2020. 

The District will be offering a Hybrid Model and a Full Remote Model.

Option 1 – Hybrid Model

Elementary families choosing hybrid were assigned to either a morning or afternoon half-day, in-person instructional session at school, 5 days a week. Students receive remote instruction the other half of the day. Students’ in-person time at school will focus on social/emotional learning, mathematics, English Language Arts, science and social studies. Students’ remote learning time will focus on specials / Encore, intervention, and extension activities.

The schedule is as follows:

Elementary A.M. In-Person Schedule
Student Arrival: 8:40-8:50 a.m.
Student Instructional Time at School: 8:55 – 11:25 a.m.
Remote Learning from Home 1:05 - 3:35 p.m.

Elementary P.M. In-Person Schedule
Remote Learning from Home 8:55 - 11:25 a.m.
Student Arrival: 12:50 – 1 p.m.
Student Instructional Time at School 1:05 – 3:35 p.m.

Middle school students attending the hybrid model are in session for half-day, in-person instruction 5 days a week in the morning. Students receive remote instruction the other half of the day. Encore, PE, intervention, and extension activities.

The schedule is as follows:

Central Middle School A.M. In-Person Schedule
Student Arrival: 7:50 – 8 a.m.
Student Instructional Time at School: 8 – 11 a.m.
Remote Learning from Home: 12:30 - 2:55 p.m.

For those students who qualify, bus transportation will be available for both morning and afternoon sessions in the Hybrid Model. However, families are encouraged to provide transportation to the greatest extent practical to allow us greater physical distancing of students on the bus.

Option 2 - Full Remote Learning

Families that choose Full Remote Learning will have a different remote experience than they do now. Most teachers will be teaching in our Hybrid Model so it is very likely your child’s teacher will change if you choose Full Remote.

Full Remote students’ schedules will change as well. Students in Full Remote will receive 2 ½ hours of instruction in the morning, and 2 ½ hours of instruction in the afternoon. They will still experience all of the course offerings that they are experiencing now, although the format may be different.
