In-person learning announcement for 2 large Denver districts
posted by: Mile High Mamas
Jeffco Public Schools and the Cherry Creek School District announced in-person learning for their youngest students for the new school year despite the novel coronavirus, which forced all schools around the state to end the last school year remotely.
Jeffco Public Schools
Jeffco schools sent a letter Friday announcing that when school reopens the week of Aug. 24, there will be a 100% in-person learning option for elementary (PreK, K-5, and K-6 buildings) students, along with an all-remote learning option for families to choose it.
A new, later start date of Aug. 24 is intended to provide additional time for teacher planning, professional learning and school preparation.
Final determinations and more detail on our RestartJeffco plan will be released July 8.
Cherry Creek School District
The CCSD announced similar plans in an email to parents Friday, which said the district updated the elementary learning plan to include an option for five days a week of in-person learning for students in K-5.
The district will focus on cohorting or grouping students as the primary strategy to limit spread of the virus with physical distancing implemented to the greatest extent possible within the plan.
