Return to School Plan
On August 17, our Board of Education reviewed the Fraser 2020 Stakeholder Task Force: Return to School Plan that was presented by our leadership team. We are grateful for everyone who volunteered to be a part of the task force or completed the survey. We had more than 100 staff members participate in this critical work.
Leveraging the work from our Return to School Plan, we have decided that in the best interest of the safety of our students and staff, we will start the school year in a virtual mode, with opportunities for small group, in-person learning for every grade level in the District. We plan to continue in that mode through the first semester of school (January 22, 2021). This date is subject to change. The District will continually monitor and adjust accordingly based upon the data and research provided by the Health Department. However, a virtual option will stay in place throughout the year.
The Task Force considered a variety of options for the start of the year, but the more we studied how to safely bring students back to school, the more obstacles we uncovered. Our Task Force was concerned about the very likely possibility of starting and stopping in-person school repeatedly for quarantines. This would cause significant disruptions for students, staff and families. It would also make in-person learning less effective, less stable and certainly less safe than online learning.
- All required instruction is virtual
- Small groups opportunities available for all grade levels
- Transportation available to eligible students
- Fraser Virtual K-6 students will now be assigned to their home school for the first semester. (In-district SOC students will still be assigned to their selected school)
