CLAREMORE, Okla. — The Board of Education in Claremore approved its “Return to Learn” reentry plan for their students for the 2020-2021 school year Thursday night.
The first day of school is scheduled for Aug. 20.
The district plans to create an FAQ to answer questions.
- Traditional school (physically attending class)
- Students will be in the classroom Monday through Thursday.
- They plan to give students devices for digital learning as Friday will be a distance learning day for students. Teachers will be in school and students will learn from home.
- The district says if restrictions start to get lifted they may change this schedule back to five days in the classroom, but that change would be unlikely.
- 100% online school
- The 250 teachers across the district will be available for students in the virtual school options
- Each students will be assigned a teacher who will monitor their progress and curriculum throughout the district
- Students still have access to extra-curricular activities
- A combination of traditional and virtual school
- Example: If a student wants to take part in band, but wants to do school online they would be considered a hybrid student.
- This will happen with any “co-curricular” courses.
- Students will also be able to use this option with vo-tech and college concurrent enrollment classes.
- Masks for students and teachers will be mandatory
- The district bought lots of hand sanitizer and mobile dispensers for it
- Temperatures of staff and students will happen daily
- Each school site will have water bottle refill stations
- Disinfecting and cleaning of rooms will happen frequently
- The goal is to be as healthy as possible. The district says can’t prevent the virus but they can mitigate the risk
