Starting the week of April 5, we are changing how attendance is taken for students in Hybrid/Comprehensive Distance Learning. The change will allow us to better account for students who are in school every day for safety purposes.
The most important thing for families to remember is for parents to report student absences ahead of time when possible either through ParentVue or by contacting the school office.
Starting the week of April 5, attendance phone calls will be made in the following circumstances:
- An attendance call (plus email and perhaps text message) will be placed in the morning when a student whose cohort group was at school for in-person learning is unexpectedly absent. For example, a student who is participating in hybrid learning in Cohort 'A', who is not at school in person an 'A' Day, and who was not previously excused through the school office, would be marked absent and would receive a morning phone call in this circumstance.
- An attendance call (plus email and perhaps text message) will be placed in the afternoon when a student whose cohort is NOT expected in school has not yet been present for CDL learning.
Attendance notifications will not change for students who are in the WLWV K12 Online Program. Thank you for your help in attendance reporting.
2020-21 CDL/Hybrid Learning
All West Linn-Wilsonville students are currently in Comprenehsive Distance Learning or the WLWV K12 Online Program. It is the district's goal to transition to hybrid learning when it is safe to do so. Review the Hybrid Model and changes to Comprehensive Distance Learning that will take place after this transition. (Spanish Version)
Comprehensive Distance Learning
Students who did not enroll in the K12 Online Program at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year will start the year in Comprehensive Distance Learning. Comprehensive Distance Learning is a temporary learning model during the 2020-21 school year. Eventually, when the state's health metrics are met in Clackamas County and the district is prepared, Comprehensive Distance Learning students will transition to the hybrid learning model.
During Comprehensive Distance Learning, students will learn remotely at home taught by their West Linn-Wilsonville teacher(s). Students will also use Florida Virtual digital curriculum to support their classroom learning.
Students learn synchronously through live Zoom video-conferencing. Students have set routines and schedules like they would during a typical school year/day. This includes regular check-ins and peer interactions throughout the CDL school day.
Students experience consistent feedback from their teacher including assessment of learning, and peer-to-peer collaboration is built into the school day.
When the district is able to transition to in-person learning, students will attend school in a hybrid model. This means students will attend school in-person half of the time, and learn from home half the time. Hybrid Learning is constructed to ensure all necessary health and safety protocols can be maintained. Operational blueprints can be found on the district website for each school. Operational Blueprints include the framework for the safety protocols in place for a transition to in-person learning.
Students will be placed in 'A' cohorts and in 'B' cohorts upon the transition to hybrid learning. Students in the 'A' cohort will attend school on 'A' days, and 'B' students will attend school on 'B' days. When students are not learning in-person, they will learn at home through extended online learning.
Comprehensive Distance Learning and Hybrid Learning School Day Schedule
The daily school schedule will be shortened during the 2020-21 school year, giving staff additional time and opportunity to regularly check in with all students during Comprehensive Distance Learning and to complete the necessary cleaning once schools transition to the hybrid model.
