School will be back in session this fall, but it will look different than it did before the pandemic to ensure the health, safety, and education of all students. Go to https://bit.ly/reopeningWAschools #reopeningWAschools #waedu for information from the Washington State Office of Public Instruction.
In the Marysville School District, we plan to open with a plan called "Continuous Learning 2.0" that will have a three-prong approach based on health and safety and the primary considerations developed by the community workgroup: We will start the year with at-home learning (distance learning), then when safe to do so, move to a hybrid model (part in-person, part at-home learning, and eventually return to 100% in-person learning). Part of the Continuous Learning 2.0 model will include an option for 100% online instruction. More information about this option will be available soon.
The District's Core Team and Community Group along with instructional sub-groups are working hard to develop a plan that meets the needs of each student while keeping the health and safety of students, families, and staff at the forefront. For students with special needs, we will provide a continuum of special education services to meet the individual needs of students and families, prioritizing services as we partner with families to determine what services are needed to address the impact of COVID on each student's academic and social/emotional wellbeing. Services may need to be adjusted from current IEPs depending on the educational model. Any adjustments made will be in partnership with families.
Updates will be posted on this site as well as communicated through direct email and social media.

We have created two workgroups that meet regularly; a core planning team and a larger community committee to give input to the core planning team. We are working hard together to finalize a full plan for fall in addition to various contingencies should changes happen in the future. The core team will take the plan to the Board of Directors who will consider the plan and ultimately make the final decision at their regular session meeting on August 3, 2020.
