Academics and Instruction
There are many benefits to in-person learning, and nothing can replace the instruction a student receives in the classroom. Knowing every student well and learning in-person is a critical way to provide a high-quality education. However, because we are in a global pandemic, we also understand that there are varying levels of comfort in returning to school buildings and families are making decisions that are specific to their circumstances and level of comfort.
While there will be some key differences between the learning in a classroom or learning remotely, the expectation for high-quality instruction that is culturally responsive and rigorous remain the same as they always have across the board, for all students.
