Seattle Public Schools is beginning an intensive three-week project that will create an adaptable plan for the 2020-21 school year and student re-entry this fall.

The project leadership group will announce a decision on June 19, which will be shared with staff and families.

School engagement teams are considering three scenarios:

The first is for pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade students to attend school in person, full time; while students in sixth through 12th grade will be on an A/B schedule and receive part in-person learning and part remote learning.

The second scenario is for all students, PK-12th, to be placed on an A/B schedule and receive part in-person learning and part remote learning.

The last scenario if for all students to receive 100 percent remote learning.

The planning process will take into consideration safety requirements, delivering remote instruction to various student groups and budget constraints.

According to a district press release, the final plan will:

Mitigate and minimize the spread of coronavirus;

Keep students and staff safe;

Prioritize access to learning for students furthest from educational justice;

Provide services through a racial equity lens;

Enable staff and students to return to learning;

Support social-emotional well-being and safe environment interactions;

Support families through the transition.
