I.    Update and Feedback regarding 196Online (for fall 2021)

  • Steve reviewed the letter of intent sent to MDE regarding 196Online. He also shared a draft of the upcoming communication to families. Committee members shared the following:
  • Building community, particularly at the elementary level, is important
  • What is the criteria for a student to stay in the 196Online school? (Lots of support will be provided to make the model a good fit.)
  • Ensure your courses in the 196Online align with the brick and mortar courses
  • Understand the wide scale comprehensive approach to 196Online, but there will be room in schedules for specialized electives/courses
  • Continue to focus on both brick and mortar 5 days a week and the 196Online
  • Families can switch from one model to the next, at the trimester break, however, transitions might be more difficult the first year
  • Co-curricular opportunities will still be an option for both school models
