Targeted Calendar Dates Approved for a Phased Return to In-Person Learning

The Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) has established targeted calendar dates for a phased return to in-person learning for this school year.  The Governing Board will further discuss these dates in relation to current health data, COVID-19 risk thresholds and adopted benchmarks, implementation of mitigation strategies, and student and staff needs at the next Governing Board Meeting on February 23, 2021.

*Staff are expected to return to working onsite unless having an approved ADA accommodation or leave.

**Special Education Specialized Programs: Students are out of the general education classroom for a majority of their day. 

In-person learning will be provided five days per week with a concurrent teaching model in which the teacher will deliver instruction to students both in-person and online simultaneously.  Students returning to in-person learning will be required to follow mitigation strategies while at school including being free of COVID-19 symptoms, quarantining if having close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, wearing a face mask, and maintaining appropriate physical distancing.

FUSD students will have the option to remain in remote learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year based on student/family preference or student health needs and will be supported with concurrent teaching by their assigned teacher.  Students and families who initially decide to remain in remote learning may be permitted to return to in-person learning at a later date this school year with advance approval by the school principal.
