UPDATED CALENDAR – Amory School District 2020-2021
Amory School District Return to School Plan 2020-2021
The Amory School District has taken steps this summer to prepare for the health, wellness, and safety of students and staff for the upcoming school year. It is the intent for the district to provide the best possible education for all of our stakeholders while still maintaining the safest environment possible. On June 8, 2020, the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) issued Considerations for Reopening Mississippi Schools. In the MDE document, three learning options were outlined: a traditional school model, a hybrid school model, and a distance learning model. As a result of a stakeholder survey concerning these options, the district will offer a hybrid-traditional school setting with a hybrid-virtual school option. While a virtual option will reduce contact with staff and students for safety purposes, it should be noted that many opportunities offered in traditional school setting CANNOT be duplicated in a virtual format. Parents who choose to utilize the virtual model during the school year will be expected to meet the same academic requirements as traditional students.
