Clark County School District 2020/21 School Year Update
Today’s blog serves as an update as to the decision that was made by the Clark County School District Board in regards to the start of the 2020/21 school year.
The board agreed to implement a full-time, distance learning model for the start of the 2020/2021 school year. If you recall, in my previous blog I discussed that the board had proposed a different hybrid approach where students would attend part time in school, and part time via distance learning from home. Ultimately, the school board decided that it is safer for students to return to school 100% remotely due to the current state of COVID-19 cases in Clark County. The board felt this decision was necessary in order to protect our community’s students and staff.
This was not an easy decision, and naturally not everybody is happy with the outcome. There will be plenty of discussions relating to how to appropriately prepare teachers to accommodate this learning model and in what capacity students will be equipped with the necessary tools needed for distance learning. Regardless of its challenges, the board did state that it is better to be safe with student’s, staff’s and all community member’s lives than it is to gamble with going back to face-to-face learning.
The school board will be getting updates every 30 days from health officials to continue to closely monitor the situation in order to make future determinations as to whether distant learning will continue.
