Th third grading period will begin on January 21, which is the first date virtual students may return to in-person learning if they choose to switch instructional models.
(Carroll County, Ky.) – Carroll County School District announced yesterday that they are planning the return to school for November 4.
This is for those students who chose the in-person/ distance learning instructional model. Students who chose the virtual school model will continue in that model for at least the first semester.
The goal is to return to school 100 percent on November 4, but if conditions prevent that, the district will explore implementing a hybrid learning model.
“We recently shifted the finish date of the first grading period from October 27 to November 2,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “We made this shift in order to equalize the number of instructional days in each grading period. As a result of this shift, the first instructional day of the second grading period will be November 4, which is when we plan to return to in-person instruction.”
For the 2020-2021 school year, Carroll County students have the option to enroll in one of two models.
In-Person/ Distance Learning:
- Students who attend classes in-person when allowed by the school district. When in-person classes are not allowed, students participate in Distance Learning primarily through Google Classroom. Students are currently participating in Distance Learning.
- The Virtual School option is for students who do not plan to attend in-person classes at any point for at least the first semester. Students will learn via the Edgenuity online platform.
The end of the first semester will be January 20, and the third grading period will begin on January 21, which is the first date virtual students may return to in-person learning if they choose to switch instructional models.
