Springdale Schools will be prepared for the 2020-2021 school year with a safe, innovative, educational environment where a culture of caring will consistently be on display. Our Springdale School Board and family of educators want our parents and students to know you have choices in the delivery of instruction in your district. We encourage on-site learning for students; however, you have a blended learning option.
Blended learning options include:
Additionally, Springdale Schools is offering a K-12 virtual learning option through VIA DTSOI for interested students and families. Regardless of the educational options you select, Springdale Schools will provide the highest quality, personalized education experience for your child. The health, safety, and well-being of each student, teacher, and support staff is our top priority.
Springdale Public Schools will follow guidelines provided by the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The use of personal protective equipment, physical distancing where possible, and in-depth cleaning and sanitizing procedures will be implemented throughout the school day, at school sponsored activities, and on school buses.
Under direction of Governor Asa Hutchinson, school will resume with onsite, blended, and virtual learning no later than August 26.
The Springdale administration, in concert with the personnel policy committee made up of teacher representatives from each school, is currently working on considerations for an alternative 2020-2021 Academic Calendar for the school board to consider at the July 14th regularly scheduled school board meeting. Additionally, the school board will consider appropriate use of face coverings throughout the school district. The school board will be meeting on Tuesday, July 14th beginning at 5:00pm. Please see the live link below to watch.
The Springdale School District is committed to helping each student reach his or her full potential. Personalized learning has been and will continue to be our focus. We look forward to partnering with each of you in the creation of a culture focused on caring and safety as we navigate this new educational landscape together.
