Parent Decision - Blended vs Virtual for 2020-2021 School Year
This is the traditional educational model we are all accustomed to. Students will come to school every day to learn in a setting which follows safety guidelines for COVID19. It is called Blended because not only will we be offering instruction like we normally do, but we will also put our assignments online for students who may become ill and have to quarantine or just may be running a fever and don’t want to risk possibly spreading the virus. If we are instructed to close schools, students and teachers will be prepared and ready to carry on with remote learning.
Bauxite Virtual Academy (Online)
This option will be completely online, without onsite instruction. Students will only come to school for state-mandated assessments or extra-curricular activities. Families who choose Bauxite Virtual Academy must have reliable home internet access; however, we will provide a Chromebook if requested. An important thing for our Miner families to know before choosing this option is that Bauxite Virtual Academy will not look like the AMI work of the Spring semester. There will not be paper packet work. Grades will count. Attendance will count.
Bauxite Virtual Academy will be as rigorous as onsite instruction, and it will be graded like onsite work will be. Students will be expected to participate daily for their attendance to count; there may be times when synchronous learning is required, and the student may be expected to login during the school day to hear instruction. Other times the learning may be asynchronous.
Students registered in Bauxite Virtual Academy may also participate in extracurricular activities, following the guidelines of the Arkansas Activities Association. Transportation to activities must be provided by the parent.
If Bauxite Virtual Academy is selected, students must remain a virtual learner through the end of the semester.
It is important that we receive one (and only one) response for each student by the July 10 deadline. This will allow us to plan for class sizes and how we will handle our transitions and lunches. We will be contacting parents we don't receive a response from.
While the options are very different, our commitment to do our very best for our Miner students remains the same!
