    K-5 General Education Students Who Opt for In-Person Learning

     

    English Learner Students (K-2)  


    This comprises all English Learner students in grades K-2 who wish to return to a school building for in-person learning. A virtual learning model will also be offered  for those students who do not wish to return.These plans are contingent on staffing and building capacity. 

    Targeted Return Date: Jan. 2021

    Location: Students will be located at the same sites as general education elementary students. This is still to be determined. Due to the building capacity constraints, while meeting CDC guidelines, elementary schools will almost certainly not be able to accommodate all elementary students at their zoned schools. A virtual school learning option will be offered to all families and students who do not wish to return to in-person learning for the 2020-21 academic year.

    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): ACPS will provide reusable masks for all returning students and staff members. Disposable masks will be provided for all visitors (as needed). Additional PPE such as face shields will also be provided to staff. Sneeze guards will be provided for student desks, and all desks will be distanced appropriately.

    Cleaning: An increased frequency of cleaning will occur at ACPS facilities. This includes cleaning and disinfecting restrooms every 1.5 to two hours. The cleaning protocol will also include thoroughly disinfecting high-touch surfaces and ensuring that all supplies are fully stocked throughout the day. Additional custodial coverage during the day will be provided where appropriate.

    Transportation: Assigned seating will be used and students will be seated one per row, every other row. This will ensure students are seated in the same spot daily and are distanced to the greatest extent possible on the bus. Masks will be worn by all riding the bus. Hand sanitizer will also be available on all buses. Buses will be loaded from the back to the front in order to alleviate unnecessary contact between students as they enter the bus. Buses will be unloaded from front to back in order to alleviate unnecessary contact between students as they exit the bus.

    Meals: Meals will be prepared, packaged and delivered to students using the appropriate safety measures.

    Learning Plans: This will be made up of a combination of general education curriculum and dedicated blocks of English language development.

    Instruction and Staffing: Instruction will be based on the general education curriculum and will include a dedicated English language development block. These classes will be staffed by both general education teachers and English Learner teachers. However, students may not be assigned their current teacher, classroom or school due to logistics.
