Remote Learning Schedules Updated – 2020-2021

The Bellevue School District in partnership with its educators have updated the remote learning schedules for the fall start.

All students will start with remote learning for the fall. Remote Learning schedules will be the same for both students who are enrolled in BSD Virtual and those who are enrolled in the Temporary Remote option. Once health metrics indicate it is safe to move to in-person learning, we will share the hybrid learning schedules with our community.

The remote learning schedules ensure a more robust learning experience for students than last spring, including:

  • Live instruction and increased student/teacher engagement
  • Reasonable screen time depending on student age
  • Emphasis on small group learning and individual support
  • Secondary School Full Remote Learning Schedule (applicable for Temporary Remote or BSD Virtual Learning)
