Learning Models Set For Spring Semester

Learning Models Set For Spring Semester
Posted on 12/18/2020
Grain Valley School Board meeting on 12/17/20At their business meeting on December 17, the School Board designated a return to full in-person learning as the primary learning model for all students, PreK-12th grades, beginning with the start of the spring semester on January 25. PreK-5th grades have been full in-person since school started. 100% virtual will continue to be an option for families through the remainder of this school year.

“The hybrid model served us well in grades 6-12 to get the school year started with so many unknowns. Half the school year has now passed and there has not been significant spread of the coronavirus in area middle and high schools where learning has been 100% in-person. The Board feels strongly that it is time to allow all middle school and high school students back into schools every day, as long as gating criteria conditions are met. Students will stay engaged with their teachers every day, even on days when we are not able to have in-person school. This daily personal engagement with teachers was not possible using the hybrid approach.” - Eddie Saffell, School Board President

The Board also authorized gating criteria, which are conditions that need to be met for in-person learning to remain in place. Daily monitoring of our school substitute fill rate is the dominant gating criteria for our ability to maintain in-person learning.
