SSD Technical High Schools Reopening Planning Overview

  • At its October 13 meeting, the Special School District Board of Education reviewed COVID-19 community health data and considered proposed timelines for the return of students and staff to SSD’s schools and programs. 

    The Board of Education voted to begin phased reopening of SSD’s schools and programs according to the timelines outlined below.

    SSD Technical High Schools

    North Technical High School and South Technical High School

    • January 19, 2021 – Phase 1: Family Choice Hybrid (1 day)
      Family choice of 1 day per week in-person learning or 100% distance learning
    • Will Re-evaluate in January 2021 – Phase 2: Family Choice Hybrid (2 days)
      Family choice of 2 days per week in-person learning or 100% distance learning
    • Will Re-evaluate in January 2021 – Phase 3: 100% In-Person
      5 days per week in-person learning with no distance learning option

    Phases 1 and 2 for all SSD schools and programs include a family choice option that allows families to choose to participate in our phased reopening or opt to continue distance learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Families wishing to continue distance learning will also have an option to receive related services in-person. Administrators from each SSD school will be contacting families with information about the family choice options on October 14,2020. Families are asked to complete the form and submit their choice by October 19, 2020. 

    Students who attend in-person classes during the phases that include hybrid learning will be divided into two groups — with Group A attending in-person classes on different days than Group B. Plans for how students will be assigned to groups will be shared soon. More detailed information about each phase, including sample schedules for the hybrid learning phases, can be found below.
