Parent Transition Requests Between Delivery Models

For the 2020-2021 school year, regardless of the delivery model that is selected by the Ames CSD, parents have the option to select 100% online instruction for their students. Parents can also opt back into on-site instruction throughout the year. We have provided initial guidance on what that structure looks like, including monthly deadline dates, on our website. As a reminder, the deadline to request 100% online instruction to start the school end is this Friday, August 21.
