A Message from the Superintendent

Dear BASD Families: 

The data for the week is in and we are in the moderate range for COVID-19 community spread for the second week in a row. This means we can put the plan I shared on Wednesday into action. 

Here is the plan for the week of February 22: 

  • Elementary students (Grades K-6): Beginning on Monday, February 22, elementary students will be able to attend school in-person five days a week. No more voluntary closures on Friday.

  • Secondary Students (Grades 7-12): Beginning on Wednesday, February 24, Cohorts will end and students will be able to attend in-person instruction four days a week with Friday being the only remote learning day.  

Information for Secondary Students (Grades 7-12)

Students will return to the Learning Pathway in which they were enrolled BEFORE the COHORT Model was introduced. Please carefully review the information below. 

Traditional School Model: (Full time in person instruction at school.) You will return to school in person Monday - Thursday with a remote day on Friday.  No action needed!

Online/Cyber School Model: (Full time remote learning at home through the Cyber Learning Program.) You will continue to learn remotely at home five days a week. No action needed! 

Hybrid School Model: (Some courses in person at school and some courses remotely at home.) You will return to the schedule you had prior to the COHORT model. The only difference is that any courses that were scheduled to be in person on FRIDAY will be remote.  No action needed!

Flexible Traditional Model: (Two days in person at school and three days learning remotely at home.) You will continue to learn in person at school two days a week and remotely at home three days a week. The only difference is that you will now follow the White/Gold COHORT schedule. In addition, Friday will be a remote learning day. No action needed!

Full Remote Instruction/Live Streaming During COHORT: If you decided to do remote instruction/live streaming full time 5 days a week while we were operating in the COHORT Mode, you must let us know what your Learning Pathway will be moving forward. Action required! Please complete the form for your school. 

Learning Pathway Transition: If you want to make a change to your Learning Pathway, you must complete the form for your school. Action required! Please complete the form for your school. 


 

Have a great weekend!

 

Sincerely, 

Brian J. White, Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent
Butler Area School District
