In-Person Support for Secondary Students

  • As secondary students continue the school year in distance learning, SPPS will begin offering in-person support for 6-12 grade students at their schools the week of February 22. This in-person support will be offered on Monday-Thursday. Fridays will be distance learning days for all secondary students. Specific schedules will vary based on the school and grade level. Please know this also means that current distance learning schedules may change.

    TIMELINE

    • January 29-February 3: No instruction for secondary students. Friday, January 29, was a previously scheduled non-school day.

    • February 4: New first day of second semester. Distance learning schedules may also change at this time.

    • February 22: First week of in-person support

     

    PROGRAM DETAILS

    • On-site support will be offered by licensed teachers and school staff at all schools that have 6-12 grade students. 

    • Middle school students in 6-8 and K-8 programs will be able to come in for up to 2.5 hours of support one day a week, Monday-Thursday.

    • 9-12, 6-12 and alternative programs will prioritize support for students who need support to graduate or pass their classes, multilingual learners, special education students, and those who need additional social-emotional support.

    • For high schools, the maximum number of students on-site at a time will be 11-14 per classroom, or about a third of total enrollment. For middle schools, there will be 6-10 students, or 25 percent of enrollment, per classroom.

    • This is not a hybrid learning model. Rather, it is a way to provide support during distance learning to students who are missing that in-person connection with their teachers and school community. 

    • In-person time will be used to support distance learning, not to teach new material. 

    • Students will receive bagged lunches or meals to go, and bus transportation will be provided.

    • When staff and students are on-site, the SPPS COVID-19 guidelines will be strictly enforced to ensure a safe learning environment for all.
