Schools have the primary responsibility in our society of providing a rigorous, standards-based, quality education in a learning environment that is comfortable and safe. Here at the Erlanger-Elsmere Schools, we take this responsibility very seriously.
We are also committed to the vision and mission of our school district – to embrace and attend to the needs of our students, regardless of the obstacles, so that they may reach their full potential.
The “Healthy at Schools” expectations issued by the Kentucky Department of Education for in-person instruction provides for significant measures to safeguard the health and safety of our students, staff, and families, but the resulting environment does not align with what we know is best practice for teaching and learning.
Simply put, the guidelines would not allow us to provide the cooperative, collaborative, and hands-on learning experiences we know our students need to build 21st-century skills.
We have kept these factors and our district standards in mind as we approached our decision on the reopening of our schools.
Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions
about the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
Virtual learning will be a structured, teacher-led model that will engage students in daily learning. It will allow for a more interactive experience than we would currently be able to provide at school.
Families will receive their specific information about virtual learning — including curriculum details, schedules, necessary supplies, and more — from their child’s school.
A completely computer-based learning model is not appropriate for our students in PK-2. Our elementary schools and district preschool are developing age-appropriate activities to support the learning and growth of our youngest learners.
Students will attend class virtually, maintaining a modified daily class schedule during traditional school hours.Virtual instruction will include daily contact with a teacher; participation is required and will be regularly monitored.
We stand ready to distribute devices to any students who need them to use at home. Our partnerships with the United Way and Cincinnati Bell will allow us to help families without reliable internet apply for free access to it.
We’re developing virtual and safe face-to-face opportunities for students and families to access the academic, social-emotional, health, and nutrition supports they need for a successful school experience.
We recently shared an update on fall sports here. We'll continue to share details about extracurricular activities as they are available.
