These sample schedules are applicable for BSD Virtual and Temporary Remote Learning.

We have been working on these draft schedules since June. They have gone through numerous changes, involved multiple stakeholders and have been reviewed by representatives from the Bellevue Education Association (BEA), the School Board and District Leadership. The district has a legal requirement to bargain the effects on employees related to the impact of the pandemic, and to that end has been negotiating with BEA during the summer and will continue to negotiate the effects.

Topics in this section:

Elementary Full Remote

Elementary students will be assigned to either Group A or Group B. With their group, they will spend either the morning or afternoon learning online with their classmates with a 15-minute mid-block break. The second half of the day students will work independently or participate in small group learning. Screen time will be limited to 2-3 hours per day. On Wednesdays there may be a period for the entire class to meet together to build community.
