After considerable research, significant feedback from our community, along with many administrative and board discussions, the Mead School Board has determined it is in the best interest of students, families and the community to offer both in-person and remote learning options for students to choose from this fall:
- In Person Learning (100% face-to-face for grades K-5; Face-to-Face Split/Rotating Hybrid Schedule grades 6-12)
- Continuous Remote Learning (K-5) or At Home Split/Rotating Hybrid Schedule (6-12) or Self-Paced Online Learning Via Edgenuity (6-12)
NOTE: The first day of school has been delayed to Monday, September 14 for 1-12 graders and Thursday, September 17 for Kindergarten students.
This pandemic has placed new challenges and significant stress on our schools, families and community. In planning for the fall we asked our families to share with us their needs and desires for the upcoming school year and one message was clear: Every family's circumstances are unique and there was no one-size fits all instructional model that would work for everyone. As a result, the Mead School District is empowering families to choose the learning option that works best for them.
Summary information on the learning options for elementary, middle and high school students and safety protocols can be found by clicking the appropriate link provided on the right hand side of this page. Additionally, you will find answers to Frequently Asked Questions plus access to the district's 25-page Reopening Plan and detailed Safety Plan.
Families were asked to complete a Fall 2020 Learning Option Selection Survey by August 23. If you were unable to complete this survey please contact your child's school to let them know the learning preference for your child.
