In an effort to better connect and engage with students, Roseburg Public Schools plans to offer Limited In-Person Instruction for all grades starting in January.
Limited In-Person Instruction is a tool created by state health and education leaders that will help our schools reach students who need extra support during remote learning.
Starting the week of January 11, the district will implement Limited In-Person Instruction opportunities for students in all grades. Individual schools will reach out to families with details about scheduling, transportation, sign-ups and other logistics. These opportunities are completely voluntary and are intended to support students in their individual needs.
There are some guidelines and schedules for the Limited In-Person Instruction program. Elementary school students will be invited to participate in Limited In-Person Instruction on Tuesdays starting January 12. Middle and high schools students will be invited to participate in Limited In-Person Instruction on Wednesdays starting January 13.
Transportation will be available for all grade levels.
Also, cohort groups are limited to no more than 20 students. Students cannot be part of more than two cohorts (including transportation) in any given week. Any one staff member(even in multiple roles) cannot interact with more than three cohorts in a given day and five in a week.
“Although we have made great strides in serving our students through remote learning, it is not a sufficient substitute for teaching and learning in-person,” Superintendent Jared Cordon said. “Many of our kids are struggling, and the pandemic has highlighted the vast differences in the support our kids need and deserve. These needs range from academic, to social, to emotional. We believe that even short windows of time with our students will make a tremendous difference in their mental health, emotional well-being, and educational progress.”
