SPS survey: How would you like school to resume in the fall?

The State of Oregon has issued initial guidance for the return to school in the fall. This guidance includes limits on the number of students in any given space, physical distancing, face-covering recommendations and requirements, as well as updated transportation guidance for school buses.

The state health department is unable to forecast whether these expectations may change when school is set to resume in the fall. Given this uncertainty, Springfield Public Schools is considering all possible learning models to accommodate public health guidelines. We understand that it is still early, but we wish to have your initial feedback to help guide our planning. 

Please take a moment to review the three basic instruction models currently being considered by SPS and then share your feedback (in the survey below) based on your family’s situation and comfort level. 

Thank you for your assistance as we continue to plan for the fall.

Overview of Instruction Models:

Traditional in-person:

Learning occurs in a traditional classroom with accommodations for social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting, and symptom monitoring. This model is dependent upon the district’s ability to meet state requirements and recommendations such as the number of individuals per space. 

Blended learning:

Learning continues both in-person and remotely. Face-to-face settings follow protocols set forth by public health authorities as well as safety standards identified by Springfield Public Schools.

Remote Learning:

Learning that occurs at home with students enrolled in the K-12 SPSOnline program taught and supported by Springfield Public School teachers. This program differs from the spring distance learning for all, in that it is an established online learning program.
