what is blended learning?

The blended learning model combines a face-to-face classroom experience with asynchronous learning.  Students in the blended learning model would attend school in one of two cohort groups attending school in-person on Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday.  In the blended model Wednesdays will be virtual learning for both cohorts. In the blended learning model, approximately one-half of the student population attends school, while the other half of the student population is engaged in at-home learning.  The blended learning model reduces the number of students in the school, increasing the likelihood that social distance guidelines can be followed. 

 

WUSD students are broken up into two cohorts alphabetically by last name, A-Le and Li-Z, in order to minimize the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19 as we return to the classroom.  Cohort A (A-Le) will attend in-person to their classes on Mondays and Tuesdays, while Cohort B (Li-Z) students will participate in virtual learning on these days.  Cohort B will attend in-person classes on Thursdays and Fridays, while Cohort A will participate in virtual learning.  Wednesdays all students, both cohort groups, will attend their classes virtually.
