Dear Salem-Keizer Community,
We want to let families know about our current plan for the next school year and some options to consider.
Our plan for the fall is to have full-day, in-person classes, five days a week for all students. We will follow all guidelines from the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Health Authority. We do not know what those guidelines will say, but they may include protocols like wearing a face covering, frequent handwashing and some form of physical distancing.
We will share more information about our plans throughout the spring and summer.
EDGE – Online only program will continue with more options
We will continue offering our online-only Enhanced Digital Guided Education (EDGE) program. Students who are in EDGE will remain connected to their resident school while receiving online instruction by Salem-Keizer’s EDGE teachers.
Starting in the fall of 2021, EDGE students can choose between two learning pathways to best meet the needs of individual students and their families. One option is called EDGE Connected, which includes daily, teacher-led instruction. The other option is EDGE Independent, which is student paced with teacher oversight and offers a more flexible schedule.
The deadline to register for a guaranteed spot in EDGE is Friday, May 14, 2021. Students registered after this date will be enrolled if there is room in the program. Learn more about EDGE and how to register on the EDGE website.
Thank you for being a part of our Salem-Keizer community.
