SPRINGFIELD, Ore.-- Officials from Springfield Public Schools outline their plan on how to get students back in the classroom to board members Monday evening.
The district's operational blueprint is full of details from how classrooms will be situated to keep students in compliance with state health guidelines as well as how an actual school day will be structured.
When it comes to instructional models, elementary schools will have four, full day school weeks with all students in attendance. Middle school students will have two day school weeks with one half going to class Monday and Thursday and the other half going Tuesday and Friday. High school students will go to school four days a week but half of the students will go in the morning and the other half will go in the afternoon.
The school district is making plans to have Kindergarten through 3rd grade back in the classroom. According to the Oregon Health Authority, Lane County meets that benchmark to allow that age group back in the classroom.
The operational blueprint still has to be approved by the Oregon Department of Education and Lane County Public Health before it can go into effect.
The district will post the full presentation online Tuesday morning.
