Middle School Survey – Academic Plan for March 1st

Middle School Survey – Academic Plan for March 1st

Posted on February 16, 2021


Parents and Families,

On March 1st, Taft Middle School will be transitioning our instructional model from our online Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) to an in-person, Hybrid Schedule. In the Hybrid Model, students will attend in person 2-days a week (Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday) with their cohort group and log into their classes virtually on the other days.

As there are still some concerns about returning to in-person instruction, this survey is to help Taft MS prepare for our students returning on March 1st by informing parents/guardians of their educational options.

Starting March 1st, parents/guardians will have three options for instruction:

Option 1 – Hybrid Instruction: Students will attend 2 days a week in person and 2 days a week virtually with their cohort group. Group A is Monday/Thursday and Group B is Tuesday/Friday (Wednesday will continue as independent, at-home learning). In the Hybrid model, students will keep their current schedule and teachers.

Option 2 – CDL (Comprehensive Distance Learning): Student will remain in distance learning and continue to attend all classes online; however, students will be assigned a new teacher from the district along with a new schedule and class times. Student will still receive daily instruction from a teacher, but they will be able to remain at home.

*Edmentum (Online Students) will remain in their current program and may elect to change instructional programs at the end of 3rd quarter, April 12th.
