Parents get ready and plan ahead. The Beaverton School District announced today it will extend “comprehensive distance learning” for grades 4 through 12 through February 8, when the first semester ends.
The district says that given the trajectory of coronavirus cases, they don’t believe they’ll be able to meet the state’s metrics to begin any sort of in-person learning until then.
They’re still considering whether to also extend comprehensive distance learning for grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. They hope to make that final decision by October 19th.
In order to start hybrid learning of part in-person/part distance learning for grades 4 through 12, the district said it must meet these state metrics:
- 10 or fewer cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people in Washington and Multnomah County over 7 days for 3 weeks in a row
- Test positivity of 5% or less in Washington (and Multnomah) County over 7 days for 3 weeks in a row
- Test positivity of 5% or less statewide over 7 days for 3 weeks in a row
