2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
Last Updated: June 30, 2020
Stay updated on all information about the upcoming school year. This page will be updated as decisions are made.
The goal for 2020-2021 is to begin the school year on time with our students attending daily classes in person.
At this time, we are awaiting further guidance from the Ohio Department of Education and the Lucas County Department of Health in order to solidify our plans for the start of the school year.
Our Restart Task Force committee is meeting regularly to plan for the safe return to school as well as alternative learning options that allow for flexibility and continuity if there is a need to move to remote learning or a hybrid model during the upcoming school year.
We are using a stoplight system to identify the alternative options:
Green: Learning environment is on-campus
Yellow: Hybrid model of on-campus and remote learning
Red: Learning environment is completely through remote learning
Online-only option: Sylvania Alternative Learning Academy
Our district recognizes the value, importance, and best practices of face to face teacher to student instruction. However, we understand and appreciate that the current COVID-19 crisis may prompt some students and families to choose an alternative educational system for the 20-21 school year.
The Sylvania Alternative Learning Academy for the 20-21 school year will serve as a non-traditional instructional option for students and families grades K-12 who choose 100% remote learning. Specific details and enrollment information will be communicated next week.
Sylvania Schools will continue to provide ongoing information to our parents and learning community as specific decisions are made.
