Students will be provided a high-quality education experience through daily instruction. Schools will strive to adhere to safety guidance while providing in person instruction each day.
Distance Learning Instruction
The use of technology to deliver daily instruction is an alternative option available to parents. Students participating in distance learning will be expected to participate in daily learning activities, assignments, and instructional sessions using technology. More information concerning grading, student workload, and expectations will be provided prior to the beginning of school.
Some students may need to be both virtual learners and traditional learners. These will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
COVID-19 Impact on Learning Styles and School Environments
Jefferson County Schools is committed to the whole child. This includes academics and the social/emotional learning of each student.
Instructional adjustments may need to be made over the course of the 2020-21 school year. It is our goal for parents and students to experience fluid transitions as conditions improve or worsen.
Communication will occur regularly through JCS social media sites, local media outlets, and the phone notification system.
Jefferson County Schools will develop procedures that allow students to quickly transition from in-person instruction to distance learning in the event a student must be absent due to sickness (any sickness).
Meeting the needs of all students including special education, English language learners, and students with a 504 plan remains a priority for the district. Specific protocols will be developed to address the needs of these students in the coming weeks.
