The Public School Board has made changes to the schedule for secondary students in the Adapted In-School learning model.

This comes in response to feedback from parents and students.

Schools will open its secondary schools with a hybrid model that combines in-person and remote learning. Courses will be delivered in a “quadmester” format which involves a four-semester school year.

​Students will have a 225 minute block of in-person instruction provided each morning on days they are scheduled to be in school. They will then be dismissed to go home and have lunch before participating in a mandatory 75 minute period of on-line, synchronous instruction in the afternoon.

On the alternate home days, there will be 225 minutes of asynchronous learning available for student engagement stemming from the previous in-person days’ learning. ​

In order to reduce the number of direct contacts during the school day, there will be nutritional breaks threaded into the morning.

A sample timeline can be found online here.
