    Acceleration of Learning

    • More reading and math teachers will support elementary students
    • More teachers in secondary schools will provide more individualized instruction

    • Updated technology for all students who need it
  • A Day on Campus

    Spending a day on campus will look and feel very similar to what school was like before our campuses closed, but with a few extra precautions to make sure students can learn and play safe and comfortably.


    School bus transportation to and from campuses will be available for those who qualify (i.e., students in magnet programs or based on certain Individualized Education Programs), following all public health and safety guidelines.


    Students will be able to use playground equipment and enjoy sports during recess or nutrition following the latest public health and safety guidelines.


    All students will be able to get a meal at no charge. Breakfast will be provided to students in the morning, lunch will be served in the cafeteria, and supper may be eaten on campus or taken home. Students will be able to eat meals with friends following the latest public health and safety guidelines.

    Afterschool Programs

    Beyond the Bell will offer high quality, safe, and supervised academic, enrichment, and recreation programs from the end of the school day until 6 p.m. Download 2021-22 Beyond the Bell Programs for a list of programs and contact information for your school site. Space may be limited.

    Programs will offer in-person enrichment activities in four areas of engagement with opportunities for students to learn and thrive physically and mentally, focusing on academic, physical, creative, and social and emotional learning.


    We are excited to return to our normal sports schedule! Our scholar athletes will continue to learn the skills they will need for their journey in a post-secondary school/ career.
