Black Tiger Families:

Many parents and guardians have contacted us regarding the need to potentially change the days of the week their students are attending school when we are in a blended learning situation. In order to consider these requests, we need to gather information to help us make informed decisions, as part of the reasoning behind the alphabetical split is to reduce the number of students in classrooms, buildings, and riding buses on those days.

Your request will be considered once the district has received your Commitment to Option 1 for Fall 2020. The Commitment Form is available from the district's webpage.  Commitment forms are due Friday (07/31) by 5 p.m.

Friday, August 7,  is the deadline to complete the request to change days. You can complete that request here.

Your decision will be a firm commitment for FIRST SEMESTER 2020-2021, from August to December 2020.

We will only be reviewing requests from parents or guardians of students who are residents or of already approved open enrolled students.

Additionally, we have received a number of questions related to our Six-District Educational Compact programs.

At this time, all Six-District programs will run five days per week with normal transportation times.  Level 1 students will report to their programs in the morning and Level 2 students will report to their programs in the afternoon.  The academic portions will be received through the online platforms.  More information on the specifics of the programs will be forthcoming.

Be well, stay safe, and as always Go Black Tigers!
