Learning Model & Stage Status

  • The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District will begin the 2020-21 school year with 100% distance learning, and use a six-staged approach throughout the year that includes Hybrid and In-Person learning stages. Get to know each model and stage

    100% Distance Learning

    All students are expected to attend school remotely from home through Google Classroom, the District Learning Management System. Distance Learning at home will be equal to the work students receive over a normal school year in all content areas, with an emphasis on reading and math, and social-emotional learning (SEL) at the elementary level. All students should expect to login daily through the District’s dashboard Hello ID to access Google Classroom. Students learning remotely from home must be engaged in learning demonstrated by any of the following:

    • Daily participation in Google Classroom;
    • Daily participation in Zoom; or
    • Completion or submission of an assignment in Google Classroom from student to teacher

    The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District distance learning plan is developed with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous touchpoints.

    • Synchronous online learning provides for live, real time interaction between the student and teacher or student to student. The District’s primary tool for synchronous interactions is Zoom.
    • Asynchronous online learning provides for flexibility and opportunity for students to learn independently at their own pace. The District’s primary tools for asynchronous learning are Google Classroom, Screencastify, Nearpod, G-Suite tools, and FlipGrid.

    Students will receive continued feedback on their academic progress. Additionally, students will have daily access to their teachers to receive instruction and intervention, submit assignments, ask questions, and receive social and emotional support on Google Classroom or through Zoom.

    Hybrid Learning:

    The hybrid model combines both in-person learning and distance learning. It consists of a schedule where students attend school in a face-to-face model (2 or more days per week) and learn from home in a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning modalities the remainder of the week. When students attend class in-person, teachers will provide new instruction, practice opportunities for new skills, and guidance on what is expected of students on their distance learning day.  Students are expected to engage in learning each day following the same guidelines listed above in the Distance Learning model. Teachers in the Hybrid Model are available for Zoom office hours and support on Mondays. 

    Elementary Hybrid Model Schedule Highlights:

    • In-person 2 days per week, distance learning 3 days per week

    • Students prepared for distance learning days when they attend in person

    • Students will have specialists in person (PE, music, STEM)

    • Distance learning days – Still do SEL Zoom with whole class – Access learning activities through Google Classroom

    • Monday Zoom office hours for questions & support


    Secondary Hybrid Model Schedule Highlights:

    • In-person 2 days per week, distance learning 3 days per week

    • Students attend all 6 periods

    • Students prepared for distance learning days when they attend in person

    • Distance learning days – Asynchronous work provided through Google Classroom

    • Monday Zoom office hours for questions & support
