At the November 19 School Board meeting, the Southeast Polk School Board voted and approved to apply for a two-week waiver from the Iowa Department of Education for all buildings to move to the Remote Only Learning Pathway starting Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 11.

The waiver has been approved.

In the Remote Only Learning Pathway, all students learn 100% online every day.

November 30th will be an asynchronous learning day (the same as a learning-at-home day in Hybrid 2) to allow teachers and families the opportunity to prepare and plan for the remote learning pathway.

Students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) will receive accommodations and modifications specific to that student’s plan.

The Board will discuss how to move forward after December 11th at a meeting in early December. Winter Break is Wednesday, December 23 – Friday, January 1, 2021 and there is no school during that time.

Additional information will be coming from your building principals
