At this time, we plan for our students to begin the 2020-21 school year with a more robust and flexible 100% distance learning model through Northshore Learns 3.0, using a staged approach for in person re-entry to school. Our district leadership and staff have been working closely with the Northshore Education Association and other labor groups on planning for a number of instructional scenarios in the fall – instruction that continues to align with our 2017-22 Strategic Plan goals, and yet is flexible and responsive to restrictions presented by our region’s current health crisis. The planning process continues to be collaborative with a mutual commitment to the health and safety of our students, staff and their families.
Northshore Learning Model Status page, which will be used throughout the school year. As you will note on this page, there are three scenarios for teaching and learning; 100% In-person Learning, Hybrid Learning, and 100% Distance Learning. Under these scenarios, there is a breakdown of in-person/distance learning hybrid stages that allow our educational model to pivot at any time between the three scenarios. These six stages will be determined by the impacts of a changing health situation, available resources, and direction from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), our Governor and our Health Department(s). As the public health situation continues to evolve, the District, the Northshore Education Association, and other labor groups will continue to work together to adjust.
