Task Force update from 7/10/20
Program sub-committee report
The program committee began by reviewing feedback on our experience in remote learning from all three divisions. We continue to interview families and gather more data from them. We also reviewed the DOH expectations and guidelines from OSPI. Using a space assessment tool, the “Rosner tool”, we have been mapping learning spaces in buildings to estimate appropriate occupancy in each space. Using the following design principles, we are now prototyping daily schedule models:
Where possible, keep students in small consistent cohorts to reduce the possibility of community transmission.
To help manage cognitive load and allow for greater ease in potential transition to remote learning, reduce the number of classes/courses students are taking at one time (intensives model)
Focus on as much in-person learning as possible, while also recognizing the need to plan for our Tarriers in Asia who may not be able to travel back to the USA in August, and those students who may have a need to engage remotely instead of in-person.
Create opportunities for fun, social connection, relationship development, and community building.
