A MESSAGE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT
Family Academy looks forward to welcoming students, teachers and staff back to learning for the 2020-2021 school year. This year promises to be unlike any in our 30-year history, and will differ significantly from Spring 2020 when District educators were forced to rapidly respond to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic.
We believe the best place for children to learn is in the classroom. There is no app device or screen that can replace the experience of students and teachers actively engaged in learning together. However, we also recognize the challenges created by this public health crisis.
The enclosed instruction plan for this school year reflects our core beliefs which guide every decision-making process: Students First, Teamwork, Education Transcends the Classroom, Pursue Excellence and Servant Leadership.
With these values in mind, Faith Family Academy plans to offer both in-person and virtual learning to our students to give parents the option to choose the form of instruction that makes them most comfortable.
Online instruction for 2020-2021 will be robust, organized and a consistent experience for all students choosing this model of learning. For those learning on campus, our overarching priority will be the health and safety of students, teachers, staff and our community. In formulating our instructional plan, Faith Family Academy drew from parent surveys and other community input.
As we navigate our District through this health crisis, Faith Family Academy will continue to solicit input from parents and our learning community while placing the best interests of students first. Our responses will be guided by state and local health and safety guidelines, best practices, and what is fair and equitable for all students.
