New Students: Instruction Options Fall 2020

Bryant Public Schools has created two education plans that provide flexibility for families to choose a learning environment that best fits their needs. When registering new students, parents will be asked to select their student's learning environment for Fall 2020.

Instructional options include:

BLENDED LEARNING (ONSITE LEARNING)
Students will go to school buildings to learn in a setting which follows Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) guidelines. (Class size, lunch, and changing classes will be impacted due to social distancing requirements.) 

The traditional classroom will become a blended learning classroom which allows students to continue learning grade level or content standards through face-to-face instruction and technology-based approaches. Both students and teachers will stay prepared to move to online learning in case of ADH mandates.

VIRTUAL LEARNING (ONLINE LEARNING)
All instruction will be online; no in person or on campus instruction. Students will learn remotely full time. STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE ONSITE FOR STATE MANDATED ASSESSMENTS. Families who choose this option should have home internet available.

All students (K-12) will be expected to participate daily. Students will follow all policies, handbooks, and procedures including attendance, assignments and behavior. Students registered in virtual learning may also participate in extracurricular activities, following the guidelines of their respective activity as issued by the coach and the Arkansas Activities Association. Transportation will be provided by the parent.

If this option is selected, students must remain a virtual learner through the end of the semester. If a student chooses to return to onsite instruction, he/she will be assigned to their zoned school (if space is available).

We have created a Frequently Asked Questions document which provides additional information. 

While learning will look different, our commitment to providing the best education possible is unwavering. Thank you for being part of Bryant Schools!
