The plan encompasses several options for school schedules in case the need to limit numbers of people/students on campus to a complete school closures. The plan also includes information for parents to opt into five different opportunities for students to learn.

  1. In-Person Learning: In-person instruction is the typical instructional model of students assigned to a classroom on campus and instruction is delivered in-person. GCSD will conduct in-person learning with safety precautions in place in accordance with state and local health orders. Parents opting for this type of learning need to complete the online registration for your school attendance area.
  2. Remote Education: Remote education means classes delivered by a teacher located in a physical classroom with students present while also providing simultaneous remote instruction. Remote education instruction is delivered through interactive, synchronous technology which allows the student receiving the remote education to ask questions, make comments, and interact in real-time with the teacher. Parents opting for this type of learning need to complete the Virtual Education Remote Form located on the district website and return the completed form to Central Office.
  3. Classroom-Based Virtual Education within Resident District: Classroom-based virtual education means classes intended for classroom instruction that may also be instructed through technology outside the physical classroom. The virtual education instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous and delivery must be available to any student eligible to be enrolled in the class including those who may not have internet access and those who may only attend through virtual education. Classroom-based virtual education may only be delivered to students who reside in the district and have primarily enrollment in the school providing instruction. Parents opting for this type of learning need to complete the Virtual Education Remote Form located on the district website and return the completed form to Central Office.
  4. Virtual Education Within Resident District: Virtual education means school district programs and classes are approved by the Wyoming Department of Education.

Virtual education instruction is primarily delivered through technology and can be asynchronous, synchronous, or a combination of both. Parents opting for this type of learning need to complete the Virtual Education Remote Form located on the district website and return the completed form to Central Office.
  5. Home School: Home school education means the parent takes primary responsibility for providing the education and curriculum materials within their home, as opposed to enrolling their students in a public or private school. Parents/students seeking this opportunity will complete the district form from District Policy 5112.2 located on the district website.
