Educational Plan for the Remainder of the School Year 2019-2020

After surveying our teachers, receiving input from the Fergus County Health, Fergus County Emergency Services and Central Montana Medical Center and in evaluating Governor Bullock's School Opening Guidelines from April 22, 2020, the School Board of Trustees approved the following recommendation at the April 28th, 2020, Special Board Meeting.  

  1. For the safety and health of our staff and students, we will continue providing online learning and distribution of learning packets for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. 
  2. All formal instruction for grade promotional readiness or high school credit will be completed by May 15th. New instructional material will not be presented after May 15th, unless needed for course completion and promotional readiness. 
  3. The weeks following May 15th will be used to assist students who have not met the grade promotional readiness standards.  This time will be used for students needing credit recovery to ensure they have met graduation standards and maintain eligibility for activities for the fall semester or 1st quarter 2020-2021.  In addition, those students wishing to raise their grade may choose to continue to work on their progress.  Students have the option to continue with online instruction or they may make appointments with their respective school to receive direct, face-to-face instruction that meet all Governor Bullock’s School Reopening Considerations, CDC and Fergus County Health social distancing requirements.  Students who are at high risk or who have family members who are at high risk will not be penalized for failing to attend and will continue to receive remote support.
