Second Semester Placement Selection

Posted on: November 6, 2020

Hello, SLSD Families!

Below you will find the link to go into Final Forms and enter your preference for your child's or children's Second Semester placement (January 4 - May 28, 2021), either attending school in-person, face-to-face, or participating in the virtual instruction model.  

Please note: There are several policy changes regarding this choice for next semester:
1) No child who failed 2 or more core classes in virtual instruction (Math, English, Science or Social Studies) in First Quarter or First Semester will be permitted to sign up for virtual instruction again.  
2) Any child who participated in the virtual instruction model who missed 20% or more of attendance days during First Quarter or First Semester will not be permitted to sign up for virtual instruction again.
3) All students in grades 3-12 who sign up for virtual instruction MUST come in person to the school for all required state testing, which will be held at the school in small group sessions.
4) Home internet access is required for all families wishing to participate in the virtual instruction model.
5) Each family must designate an ADULT who will serve as each child's Learning Coach.  Southwest Local staff assigned to each student are FACILITATORS of the Accelerate Education platform only, and are not serving in the role of teacher.  
6) Each child enrolled in the virtual instruction model during second semester is required to have a weekly virtual conference with the SLSD staff facilitator and must log in for all help sessions (live or recorded).  

Please let your child’s principal know if you have any questions.  Here is the direct link to the survey: The survey must be completed by November 9th to allow us enough time to finalize the second semester master schedules and balance our staffing assignments for next semester.

Also, please take a few minutes to watch the First Quarter Wrap-Up video by Superintendent John Hamstra.  Video Message from the Superintendent
