Recent changes to the COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metric for K-12 Education have had a positive impact on the learning options that Jackson County Public Schools can now offer our students, beginning January 11, 2021. We can now offer Traditional In-Person Instruction as a learning option at each of our schools.
All three elementary schools and the middle school will be operating on a Hybrid Model, in which Traditional In-Person Instruction will be offered on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a Virtual Learning day for students at the three elementary schools and the middle school.
Preschool will remain on the A/B Pattern, with Team A doing Traditional In-Person on Monday and Tuesday and Team B doing Traditional In-Person Instruction on Thursday and Friday. There will be no classes for Preschool on Wednesday.
The high school will also offer an A/B Pattern with students whose last name begins with A-L attending Traditional In-Person Instruction on Monday and Tuesday, while students whose last name begins with M-Z participating Virtually. Students whose last name begins with M-Z will attend Traditional In-Person Instruction on Thursday and Friday, while students whose last name begins with A-L will be participating Virtually. Wednesday will be a Virtual Learning Day for students at the high school.
The instructional learning options above permits us to offer a Hybrid Model which allows for Traditional In-Person Instruction similar to what our District offered earlier this school year. The Hybrid Model above allows our District to be in compliance with Governor Beshear’s Executive Order and the recent changes to the COVID-19 Metric.
We are very excited for the opportunity to offer Traditional In-Person Instruction again and have our students return to our buildings! We appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding and flexibility as we navigate these challenging times together.
Beginning January 11, 2021
Students in Grades Preschool through Grade 12 may choose to attend school from one of the two options below:
Option A: Hybrid Model (Combination of Traditional In-Person and Virtual Learning Opportunities)
