Albuquerque Public Schools publishes 64-page school reentry plan

Albuquerque Public Schools has published its new reentry plan as students prepare for the 2020-21 school year beginning in August. The plan outlines dozens of details for what will happen when students begin learning around each other, including what happens when a school sees a COVID-19 case and how students should expect to learn from their teachers.

APS says before students head back to the classroom, the district will launch an all-online school for the first month of instruction. The virtual school year will begin for all grades on August 12. Unlike the Continuous Learn Plan that ended the 2019-20 school year, APS says itís expecting for teachers to present new material.

While distance or virtual learning will begin on August 12, APS says it expects students to return to the classroom for in-person learning on September 8, when the district will launch its hybrid model. The hybrid model will split each schoolís student body in half.

Under the hybrid learning model, two groups of students will rotate with on and off weeks at school. Students with last names beginning with the letter A through L will go to classroom for one week, while students with last names starting with M through Z will go to class the following week. APS is planning to keep school buildings closed every Monday for cleaning, meaning Mondays will always be a virtual learning day for all students under the hybrid plan. The district is planning on handing out more computers to families in need of a device.
