Northwest School administration and faculty are busy planning for every possible scenario for the start of the 2020-21 school year. Please note: The information on this page is not static and will be updated.

  1. We are preparing all teachers this summer to have all course materials on Canvas, our new learning management system, which is currently being rolled out.
  2. Teachers will do targeted professional development this summer to deepen their online learning strategies. We are considering the use of a cohort model. This will be required for all teaching faculty.
  3. We will be developing different models of schedules that are responsive to health standards, including using health checks for faculty and students, masks, time for hand washing between classes, limited zones of campus in a cohort model, and lunch to go delivered to students in classrooms.
  4. We are planning that not all students will be back everyday.
  5. We are planning to have all of our classes ready to pivot online at any time.
  6. We are thinking of arts class that are more conducive to remote learning.
