Scio School District Learning Model Status

Scio School District Learning Model Status

The Scio School District will begin the 2020-21 school year with 100% comprehensive distance learning due to the new mandatory metric requirements presented by the Governor and the Oregon Health Authority. These metrics require both the State to fall below a 5% test positivity rate over a 7 day period for three weeks in a row, as well as individual county metrics.  The county metrics require a case rate of less than 10 cases per 100,000 population and a less than 5% test positivity rate in the preceding 7 days with the need to meet both of those metrics over a three week period.  Other points to consider include identifying where our students and staff come from.  In addition to Linn County, Marion County is home to a portion of our school populations. (see the bottom of this page for the current Community COVID-19 Health Metrics)

We are aware of the impact this decision has upon our students, families and community.  It is now clear with these new metrics needing to be met prior to the reopening of in-person or hybrid instruction, our start to the 2020-2021 school year will be a rolling, phase in start.  We plan to use the following Level system to indicate our current learning model status.  This page will be updated regularly as well as other communications going out to keep everyone informed of our current status.

 

Current Status

 

Level 2: Modified Hybrid Learning

 

We meet county metrics to allow some groups of students in grades K-3 participate onsite with in-person instruction. Families still have option to keep students on comprehensive distance learning. Grades 4-12 will still be all distance learning.

Get to Know Each Model & Stage

Stages for our learning models allow us to pivot, when required to do so, between comprehensive distance, hybrid, and in-person learning. These stages will be determined by the impacts of a changing health situation, available resources, and direction from OHA, our Governor and our Local Health Department(s).  Individual school schedules and models may look different when we enter each stage and these plans will be communicated.

Level 1: 100% Distance Learning All students participate in comprehensive distance learning.  Staff able to be onsite for the purpose of planning and delivering online instruction.
Level 2: Modified Hybrid Learning We meet county metrics to allow some groups of students in grades K-3 participate onsite with in-person instruction. Families still have option to keep students on comprehensive distance learning. Grades 4-12 will still be all distance learning.
Level 3:  Full Hybrid Learning We meet county and state metrics and students and staff participate onsite with a hybrid model with some in-person instruction and some distance learning K-12.
Level 4:  100% K-12 staff and students in-person  We meet county and state metrics and all students and staff in grades K-12 return to in-person instruction. Likely to occur after a cure or vaccine is available.
