Learning Model Update:
The Iowa Legislature passed a bill Thursday evening requiring all Iowa schools to offer parents the option to choose in-person learning five days per week.
Beginning February 15th, DCSD will shift from the hybrid learning model to 100% in-person learning. The 100% online learning model will continue to be available to students currently in the program, and any new students who select this as their preferred learning model.
The Davenport Community Schools Board of Education will hear plan specifics at the Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, February 1, 2021. An updated Return to Learn Plan will be released Tuesday discussing more details, such as bell schedules and health and safety guidelines, to help inform your decision.
I suggest you spend some time this weekend considering what learning model is best for your student(s), either 100% in-person or 100% online. You will have through February 5 to choose a learning model. Please contact your child’s school to verify your learning model preference.
