Middle and High School
Middle and High School students will receive four days a week of synchronous instruction (teacher-led) and one day a week of asynchronous learning (self-paced) during the first semester.
As presented at the regular School Board meeting on March 23, 2021, plans are in place to return all hybrid students to classrooms 4 days each week (Tuesday through Friday) beginning April 20, 2021. Instructional hours will not change for secondary students.
Second Semester Options for Middle and High School
The below chart outlines the hybrid and 100% virtual instructional models for secondary students (grades 6-12) beginning the second semester. To allow for transportation to and from school, the schedules at both the Middle School and High School will change slightly.
The start and end time for HS students will be 10 AM and 3 PM.
The start and end time for MS students will be 11 AM and 4PM.
Students who attend ESOL hubs will attend the school assigned to them beginning second semester.
We will begin a phased in approach to the secondary hybrid program on February 9. All middle school students and high school freshmen (9th grade) will begin reporting on February 9th. High school 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will begin hybrid instruction on February 16th.
The phased in approach will allow freshmen to experience a transition week before upperclassmen return to the building.
Follow these instructions to determine if your child is in Schedule Group A or Group B:
- Log into ParentVue. (Please contact your student’s school for an access code to ParentVue if you do not have one.)
- If you have more than one SCPS student, select the student you wish to view from the top left.
- Select ‘Student Info’ from the tabs on the left.
- When the ‘Student Info’ screen is displayed, scroll down to the ‘Other Data Info’ section where you will find your child’s ‘Student Schedule Group’.
- Groups are subject to change to balance class sizes. You will be informed of any changes.
SCPS teachers will design a variety of instructional activities on asynchronous learning days to include pre-recorded video lessons, performance tasks, and/or differentiated resources for students to complete and apply their learning. At all levels, lessons will be available for students to review.
Support services for students will be provided as needed. Should your student require academic, social, or emotional support, please contact your child’s school.
Special Educational Services
Special education services will be determined by Individual Education Plan (IEP) teams and will be based on individualized student needs, as well as each student's least restrictive environment. Professional development will be provided for staff and parents to help support students with IEPs/504s remotely. IEP/504 meetings will be encouraged to discuss the unique needs of these students.
For students not covered through an IEP or 504, but who need learning support, refer to a Student Education Committee (SEC) team at your student's school.
English learners will be supported by a qualified teacher. The amount of time and types of services provided will be determined by the student's English language level, most recent WIDA ACCESS scores, and individual needs.
