Ed-Co Return to Learn Plan for 2020-2021

When will students go back to school? Right now, Ed-Co plans to start school with students in attendance at our brick and mortar buildings as scheduled on August 24th as originally planned. We don't know yet whether all the students will be in attendance, or if we will be forced to implement remote learning or a hybrid model of learning where not all the students are in attendance at the same time. We are planning for all of these contingencies.

The number of issues to tackle in preparation for this fall are numerous and complicated. Because there is no model to follow, the primary ingredient in our approach to instruction has to be centered around flexibility. As we begin school and start working with students, it may be necessary to adjust our plans and strategy. 
Attached to this message is a general summary of our “return to learn” plan. Keep in mind this is designed to be a living, breathing document and not every detail will be outlined in the public plan. Conditions continue to change and the guidance we are receiving is fluid. As we get closer to the start of school more details will emerge. Right now, some details are sparse because we are still learning about the virus, and a lot can change between now and August 24. What we know today is likely to be very different a month from now. While we are applying the lessons we learned about learning online this spring, we still have a lot yet to learn. One critical piece that seems to be constantly changing is specifics of the safety procedures (masks or no masks/social distancing) that will be in place for the start of the school year. We hope to have concrete steps in place by the end of July, but right now some of the guidance we are receiving is contradictory. Please send your questions to COVID@edge-cole.k12.ia.us at any time. Any repeat questions will be answered on our FAQ page on the COVID tab. Also, please join us for a town hall Zoom meeting on Tuesday, July 28th @ 6:00pm from the comfort of your own home.
