The St. Louis Public School District embarks upon the 21‐22 school year as a resilient, scholar‐centered organization. Based on guidance and recommendations from the St. Louis City Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, we are excited to return to fully in‐person instruction for the 2021‐2022 school year. As we navigate the year ahead, still amid the Covid‐19 Pandemic, we maintain our rigorous health and safety standards. The District’s 2021‐2022 Reopening Plan recognizes there will be unique situations that require responsiveness and flexibility to mitigate the impact a classroom, school or district closure may have on teaching and learning. In the event of a quarantine or closure, we stand ready to provide uninterrupted quality and effective learning and teaching.
Reimagining education – preparing for the year ahead...
As we transition back to in‐person instruction in a one‐to‐one learning environment and reimagine what “school” looks like, how can we create and sustain a culture where educators and learners are empowered to use technology in innovative ways to transform learning and teaching? The scholars of St. Louis Public Schools are digital learners of the 21st century and our role as facilitators of learning and teaching must ensure a more equitable and innovate approach to instruction. This document serves as a guide to outline expectations and provide resources to support educators in implementing Blended Learning instructional practices and creating learning environments in which we stand ready to pivot to virtual instruction if and when necessary.
