Return to School Plan 2020
The objectives of our Return to School Plan include protecting the health and safety of our students and staff, and engaging students in meaningful learning opportunities. The district has presented two options for the fall, full-time online or in-person learning. A third option has now been developed that will allow for greater social distancing, reduction in the number of students in our buildings at any given time, and continuation of face-to-face instruction when necessary. We are calling this third option Home Study. As conditions continue to change in our community, we recognize the need to closely monitor and adjust this plan when needed.
Provo City School District is committed to identifying ways to fully meet the learning needs of each of our students while providing the flexibility needed to adjust to the changing health situation in our community. As a parent you have options that will allow you to choose the best fit for your family. The first option allows students to return to school for in-person instruction on a reduced schedule. As part of this option, you can keep your child at home if they are sick or if you have concerns, and they can continue learning with the same teacher. The second option is an extension of the first, which allows students to participate through home study. Students will remain with the same in-person teacher as option one and access learning materials online. The first two options are designed to be interchangeable and allow students to smoothly transition between the two as needed based on circumstance or choice. The third option allows students to enroll in eSchool full-time for the term. As shown below, schools will reopen in phases to allow students and staff time to adjust to the new processes and procedures.
