Once conditions permit us to return to school in person, we will implement a hybrid model to include some in-person instruction and some 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 Hybrid

Grades PreK-2

In the hybrid model, elementary students in grades PreK-2 will attend full time in person following the normal school day schedule, which includes early release on Wednesdays. Class sizes will be reduced to allow for physical distancing.

Grades 3-5

Elementary students in grades 3-5 will divide their time between in-school and remote learning in the hybrid model. Students will be assigned to Group A or Group B. Each group will attend school in-person two (2) days per week and will learn remotely three (3) days per week.

A sample schedule for Grades 3-5 looks like:

Monday and Thursday

  • Group A attends classes in person.
  • Group B participates in remote learning.

Tuesday and Friday

  • Group A participates in remote learning.
  • Group B attends classes in person.

Wednesday

Both Groups participate in remote learning.



Secondary Hybrid (Grades 6-12)

Once we return to school in a hybrid model, middle and high school students will divide their time between in-school and remote learning. Students will be assigned to Group A or Group B. Groups A and B will attend school in-person two (2) days per week and will learn remotely three (3) days per week. On Wednesdays, classes will learn together online as a full group.

A sample schedule for Grades 6-12 looks like:

Monday and Thursday:

  • Group A attends classes in person.
  • Group B participates in remote learning.

Tuesday and Friday:

  • Group B attends classes in person.
  • Group A participates in remote learning.

Wednesday:

Both groups participate in remote learning.



Transition Program

Once we return to school in a Hybrid model, students enrolled in the transition program will attend full time in person following the normal school day schedule, which includes early release on Wednesdays.
