2020-21 CDL/Hybrid Learning

  • All West Linn-Wilsonville students in Comprehensive Distance Learning will remain in Comprehensive Distance Learning at least until Clackamas County is meeting the State's Health Metrics for transitioning to in-person learning. It is the district's goal to transition to hybrid learning when it is safe to do so. 

    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. 

    Hybrid Learning

    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.
