Aurora Public Schools is thrilled to have students back for in-person learning. As we plan for our next potential transition, we would like your input. Please take a few moments to complete the survey below about in-person learning models and transitions. The survey will close on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at noon. We apologize for the short survey window. However, we are planning to announce our next decision about a potential transition by Monday, Feb. 8. As such, we would like to consider survey input as we make our next decision.
Currently, preschool students attend every week and students in grades K-12 are in a hybrid model. In the hybrid model, students who have selected in-person learning belong to an “A” or “B” cohort and alternate each week between learning in-person and learning remotely from home. High school students attend school in person for half days during their cohort weeks.
APS continues to plan toward increasing the amount of in-person learning available to students as we adhere to health guidance provided by the Tri-County Health Department. To increase in-person learning opportunities with the aim of being back fully in-person this school year, APS is considering two options to implement next:
AA/BB or A/B/A/B Hybrid Model: In this model, students who have selected in-person would learn at school two days per week and learn remotely three days per week. This would allow students to have more frequent in-person connections each week to support learning and social-emotional wellbeing.
Fully In-Person: In this model, students who have selected in-person would attend school four or five days per week. This would provide students maximum in-person connections to support learning and social-emotional wellbeing.
Please note that regardless of what in-person model APS offers, families that choose to may remain fully remote for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year
Please take the opportunity to share your perspective about these options and potential transitions by taking the following survey, which will close on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at noon.
