Wissahickon School Board to consider its reopening plan tonight

The Wissahickon School Board will hold a virtual meeting tonight (July 20th) at 7:00 p.m. during which it will vote to adopt a plan to reopen and operate its schools for the 2020-2021 school year. You can view the full agenda here.

The plan provides parents two options. Parents of elementary school children, grades kindergarten through fifth, will have a choice between all in-school instruction or all virtual instruction.

For grades sixth through eighth, there is a hybrid model and all virtual models to select from. The hybrid model splits the students into two groups by alphabet and they rotate between in-school instruction and virtual. For the sixth grade, there is a virtual model that adheres to the regular school day, while for grades seventh and eighth its a “flexible day school” and is semester-based.

High school is much like grades sixth through eighth.

There are a lot more details pertaining to each model. You can view the different models here.
