Kent City Schools Learning Recovery & Extended Learning Plan

April 2021

Dear parents and community members:

Returning to in-person learning four days per week
After Spring Break, about two-thirds of our Kent students will return to in-person learning four days per week. On Tuesday, April 6, the K-12 students, who have been attending school two days a week will now attend four days a week—from Tuesday through Friday. This group, called Cohort A and B, makes up about 2,000 of Kent’s approximately 3,000 students.

Those students in Cohort C, whose families chose 100 percent remote learning, will continue in 100 percent remote learning for the rest of this school year. Mondays will be used for state assessments and teacher follow-up on students from all cohorts. Preschool will continue with its current schedule. Masks will be required with frequent sanitizing, hand washing and social distancing.

Extended Learning Plan
As a response to Governor DeWine’s request to help students advance academically and to make up for any learning that may have been lost or delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Kent City Schools assessed the physical, human, and fiscal resources available to provide extended learning opportunities to our students with regard to the guidance from the Ohio Department of Education. This plan may be modified as needed as circumstances may change throughout the Spring and Summer of 2021.
