Secondary Students to Return F2F
At the January 25, 2021 meeting, the school board voted for secondary students (Ames Middle School and Ames High School) who desire a building-based delivery model to return to 100% face-to-face starting on February 1, 2021. Remote Campus will continue to be an option for students.
In-Person Instruction Parent Option:
On January 29, 2021, Governor Reynolds signed SF 160, a bill that requires schools to offer parents an option for full-time in-person instruction. As of today, all of our school buildings are providing an in-person delivery model option, along with the 100% online option through our Remote Campus.
The bill also requires schools to provide parents notice of the opportunity to select full-time in-person instruction and allow at least 5 days to decide their selection if the school will still offer other instructional options. We have re-opened our ACSD Learning Delivery Model Change Request form to give parents an opportunity to select the 100% in-person delivery model.
April 4, 2021 – Once the February 7 date passes, the next opportunity for Remote Campus students PK-12 to request in-person on-site instruction is April 4, 2021. The transition date will be Friday, April 9, 2021, which is the start of the fourth quarter.
If your students are in their desired delivery model (in-person or online through Remote Campus), you do not need to access this form.
Remote Campus – Families will continue to have the option to move to the 100% online Remote Campus option throughout the semester, but the ability to return to building-based instruction will be contingent upon the dates outlined above. In other words, students can move from building-based instruction to Remote Campus at any point but are limited to when they can return to building-based instruction.
