Return to School Introduction and Learning Options

10/26/2020 Update

Dear AchievePoint families,

As we continue to navigate through this pandemic and these very uncertain and extraordinary times, we must ensure we are balancing education and safety the best we can. Sadly, our state, and more specifically Hamilton County, is currently trending in the wrong direction. We had originally planned to return to school on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning 11/2/2020. Unfortunately, because our county is on the verge of turning purple, we are postponing reopening the campus. Moving forward, AchievePoint will plan to return to school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am-4pm two weeks after the county has moved from red to orange status. This means the county must be in an orange status for two full weeks before we will reopen. Families most comfortable in a virtual environment should know this will continue to be an option. Information around county statues can be found here.

We realize 100% virtual learning can be challenging and we want you to know that we are here for you every step of the way. As a reminder, our academic coach, teachers and the entire staff is here for you. We are willing to do whatever it takes to help our students be successful. This includes being available outside of normal school hours. Our virtual bell schedule along with one on one tutoring information is available on every student’s portal dashboard.

As of today, the Ohio Department of Education has not waived state graduation testing requirements (also known as End of Course Exams). These exams MUST be taken at school. EOCs are scheduled for 11/30-12/18/2020. These exams are required for graduation and for most students, must be taken. We will be in touch to schedule EOCs. Please stay tuned for details.

Lastly, our annual school report is attached and will be published to our website before the end of the week.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to support you and your families as we work through this difficult time together.

AchievePoint understands the need for flexibility during these extraordinarily stressful times. As such, the options listed below are available to our students for the upcoming school year. Option E (fully online) will be implemented for all students and families will be notified if as a result of Local, State or Federal Government action, health department orders or an administrative decision based on the need to protect the health and safety of students, staff and the community prohibits the school from conducting on-campus, in person instruction/education.

Except as may be required as set forth above, families will have the following options :

  • Option A- On ground Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am-4pm and Fridays from 8am-11:30am.
  • Option B- On ground Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am-4pm and Fridays from 11:30am-3pm.
  • Option C- On ground Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am-4pm and Fridays from 8am-11:30am.
  • Option D- On ground Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am-4pm and Fridays from 11:30am-3pm.
  • Option E- Fully online. Students will complete work from home with their school-issued laptop and internet access. Students will have remote access to teachers, academic coaches and administrators. Students will be required to attend virtual live Math and English sessions.

*Families who chose Options A, B, C or D will also be expected to complete work from home with their school-issued laptop and internet access.

**Students and families will have some flexibility to change the option they pick during the school year. The School will use its best efforts to accommodate a request to change options provided necessary physical space is available based on social distancing and safety recommendations.

We understand any return to school plan can present risks. AchievePoint is working with Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC), Hamilton County Health Department and Ohio Department of Education guidelines to ensure our school is taking the necessary steps to help protect our staff, faculty, students and families as much as possible. Our plan includes both preventative and responsive measures that must remain fluid as new information is gathered on best practices in dealing with COVID-19. This plan has been carefully considered to mitigate risk while promoting learning, safety and health. The school administration reserves the right to enforce and adjust these procedures. Please read this plan in its entirety. In order to do our very best, we need cooperation and support from the entire AchievePoint community.

RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN

No matter the option you chose, school is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 24, 2020.
