- Frequently Asked Questions (Planning for the 2020-2021 school year)
- What is Comprehensive Distance Learning?
- For the 2020-21 school year, schools that select a Comprehensive Distance Learning instructional model must meet criteria that ODE published June 30, 2020. The approach will continue to center around the core values of care, connection, and continuity of learning. However, unlike Distance Learning for All, which was a response to emergency school closure, a comprehensive approach must guarantee the opportunity to learn for each student while prioritizing students' social, emotional, and mental health needs.
- What is the School Year Operational Blueprint?
- All public school districts, private schools, and state sponsored charters are required to make Operational Blueprint(s) for all of their schools available on their website no later than August 17th, 2020. North Wasco County Schools will post these blueprints in early August with an opportunity to complete a feedback survey. Please check back!
