School Schedule Model
  • As part of school reopening planning schools chose from different scheduling models for blended learning. These models will help schools provide parents with student schedules for in person learning.
  • Model 3B
  • Students attend in-person two days in a row on an alternating cycle so students will be in-person for two days and remote for four days.
  • Your child's school will provide you with your child's schedule.
