On Tuesday, July 28 the Edmond Board of Education approved the 2020-2021 school year reopening plan for students. The board voted that students who are not currently enrolled in Virtual Edmond will start the 2020-2021 school year by attending in-person classes two days a week and taking remote classes three days a week.
Students to Start School With a Blended Model of Instruction
Known as a blended model of instruction, this learning option aligns with the newly-released Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) School Safety Protocols wherein districts in counties with greater COVID-19 outbreaks, including Oklahoma County, are strongly encouraged to transition to alternative schedules (A/B weeks, rotations, hybrid model, etc.) to reduce the number of individuals in school buildings and ensure greater social distancing. In this scenario, students will only attend school in person on assigned days.
A blended model of instruction involves splitting each school site’s student population into an A and B group. Attention will be given to make sure students from the same household are assigned the same days. Students learned their A/B schedules on August 11.
