Coweta Parents Can Opt for Face-to-Face Instruction During September 28 to October 1 Sign-up
From September 28 through October 1, Coweta students and parents will again have an opportunity to change their student’s instructional model.
Parents can visit each school’s website to see current face-to-face enrollment numbers and class sizes as they make a decision about their student’s options.
Two options remain for students – virtual instruction (Empower online) or face-to-face instruction
Face-to-face instruction for elementary – students attend every day.
Face-to-face instruction for middle and high school – hybrid schedule – students attend every other week based on cohort assignments.
Masks are required for students in grades 2 – 12 who choose face-to-face instruction. That and other current mitigative measures will remain in place.
Parents should visit their school’s website to access the form to change the instructional model for each of their children. These elections or changes will become effective Monday, October 12.
Parents who do not wish to change their student’s current instructional option do not need to act.
At this time, hybrid schedules in middle and high schools will stay in place. Coweta school system officials have consulted regularly with state and local health and emergency authorities to monitor COVID-19 levels and adjust school plans.
Superintendent Evan Horton and administrative staff met with the Georgia Department of Public Health, District 4 and local Emergency Management on Friday, September 25, to assess the school system’s current approach and next steps.
As COVID-19 indicators continue to stabilize or decline in Coweta County, the school system will continue to work closely with health and safety officials. The district hopes to make a decision in the coming weeks in regard to transitioning away from the hybrid model in middle and high and allowing students to attend daily. Full-time online learning through Empower would remain an option for families.
Health authorities have continued to advise the school system to remain vigilant with current mitigative measures in schools. Those preventative measures will remain in place after October 12.
“Our schools, district administration, and health services will continue to monitor and adjust our plans as necessary as we navigate through this school year,” said Horton. “As always, I appreciate our school system faculty and staff members, and I appreciate the grace and support of our families and community.”
