Dear Parents and Guardians of Grade K-7 Distance Learning Students,
I hope that you and your children have had a safe and successful year. We are excited to announce that things are getting back to normal and we expect that students will be able to return to school full-time in the fall of 2021.
The reason for my communication today is that a large part of our planning is to determine whether our current Distance Learning students would like to return to in-person learning in the fall or whether they would prefer to continue in a Distance Learning model during the 2021-22 school year.
For the 2021-22 school year our Distance Learning model will operate as part of the Online728 Program. Our Online728 Program will continue to provide a safe, flexible and engaging learning option that students are able to access from home. More information on the Online728 Program can be found HERE.
Complete our K-7 Planning Survey
My request to you today is to complete a brief survey to let us know of your intentions for the 2021-22 school year by Monday, May 17, 2021. The survey will assist us as we plan for the appropriate number of staff to serve our students in both Online728 and in our traditional schools. Even if you are unsure of what option you would like, we ask that you complete the survey, as this information will be helpful for our planning purposes.
Thank you for your time and attention,
Dr. Dan Bittman
ISD 728 Superintendent
