Hybrid Learning Sample Schedules

  • These are sample schedules that provide structure to students, families, and school staff to help build routines, set and communicate learning expectations, ensure appropriate levels of “live” synchronous instruction, and allow time for strong operational planning. In the Hybrid model, preschool thru 3rd graders attend four full-days, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. In grades 4th through 12th, fifty percent of “in-person” learners and fifty percent of “remote” learners are assigned to Group A and Group B. Group A attends school, Monday and Tuesday and is at home Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Group B attends school on Thursday and Friday and is at home Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. With only fifty percent of all students and some learning remotely, the number of “in-person” learners in each classroom is reduced significantly and students are assigned to spaces that meet safety standards. In the first 10 weeks, teachers provide “live” instruction to all students two days a week and build to four days per week for all students.

    Elementary Schedule, Kindergarten– Grade 3


    Hybrid 3rd grade



    Elementary Model, 4th and 5th 


    When Group A is being served by teachers, students will receive “live” synchronous instruction at set times in each instructional block. In this elementary sample schedule, we identified five instructional blocks (SEL, Literacy, Math & Flex Time/Science/Social Studies & Specials). During the blocks, “in-person” and “remote” learners meet with their teacher at specific times, which may be in whole class, small group, or 1:1 settings, and complete independent work for the rest of the block. Group B will receive the same instruction Thurs/Friday.


    Hybrid 4th and 5th



    Middle School & High School


    In Middle and High School, students will be assigned to a Group A and Group B. On Monday and Tuesday, “in-person” and “remote learners” in Group A receive live, synchronous lessons from each of their teachers and complete independent assignments, while Group B is at home working on independent assignments. On Wednesday, homeroom/advisory teachers will connect with all students remotely for the SEL/Attendance block, then all students work independently for the rest of the day. On Thursday and Friday, “inperson” and “remote” learners in Group B receive “live” synchronous instruction from each of their content area teacher, while Group A is at home. Schools will adjust these sample schedules to fit their unique offerings and staffing. All schools will require students to attend “live” instruction” for each class for which they are enrolled and to complete independent assignments that will contribute to class grades.

    All Schools

    Each school schedule will vary based on its unique offerings and staffing. All students will be expected to login “live” for the SEL/Attendance block every day. Common to all will be use of “live” synchronous instruction two days throughout the blocks of time and independent work on the other three days to start the year and then transitioning to four days of “live” instruction for all students by the end of 10 weeks. The schools will be deep cleaned on Wednesdays. Students with disabilities and English Learners will be served throughout the blocks based on students’ needs and the collaboration among general education teachers, special education teachers and bilingual/ESOL teachers. In each of the schedules, the schools will minimize contact among cohorts of students.
