The Keystone Oaks School District’s Board of School Directors approved the District’s updated Health & Safety Plan at their Business/Legislative Meeting on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
The new plan is a requirement of the American Rescue Plan for school districts that are to receive funding under the ARP Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. The plan addresses how the District will maintain the health and safety of students, educators and other staff and serves as local guidelines for all instructional and non-instructional school activities.
For the 2021-2022 school year, Keystone Oaks will offer two educational options: Traditional Schooling, with students participating through in-person classes five days per week; or, the Keystone Oaks Cyber Academy, with students participating in online instruction through the Pearson (elementary) or Edgenuity (secondary) platforms.
Remote instruction may be used for students who test positive for COVID-19, who need to quarantine due to direct exposure to the virus, or for families who request periods of remote instruction as a result of the pandemic or other mutually agreed upon circumstances between families and District personnel. Remote instruction may also be utilized temporarily in the event of a large number of COVID-19 cases or where a state or county order limits capacity in school buildings.
