SY 2020-2021 Re-Entry Plan

The Española Public School District School Board of Education has determined that the district will remain in the remote teaching/learning model for the remainder of the semester.  Many factors were taken into account including the surveying of parents and staff members.  The school staff will continue to provide a meaningful and rigorous curriculum for all of our students.  The district will continue to monitor the progress of its students.  More communication from site principals and teachers will be relayed to parents and students.

In preparation for the 2020-21 school year, the Española Public School District has collaborated with its stakeholders to develop a plan for re-entry. The plan is fluid and flexible, and will be adjusted accordingly. Parents and staff members will continue to be updated as the start of school nears.

The main parts of the plan are as follows:
  • District will continue to employ all staff
  • The plan calls for classes to be remote from August 17-September 11th. During this time, staff will report to their units for work. Depending on the health order and the current status of the pandemic, a decision will be made about beginning the hybrid model on Monday, September 14th.
  • The hybrid plan calls for the students to be divided into an "A" cohort and a "B" cohort--each containing 50% of the population. The A cohort will attend on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesday will serve as a PD, student intervention, outreach and cleanse day at the school sites. The B cohort will attend on Thursdays and Fridays. The instruction will be delivered using the Google Classroom platform. All staff will continue to report to their units for work.
  • Meals will be delivered to students who are attending remotely.
  • There will be an option for parents who want their child(ren) to be placed on 100% remote.
  • Students will be issued chrome books or I-Pads for the remote learning.
