School Year 2020-2021 Opening
Dearborn Academy has exciting plans for the 2020-2021 School Year with the safety and security of our students and staff as our guide.
Our plan, as it now stands, is to begin the school with a hybrid model, presented in the chart below. We will work to provide high-quality instruction and services to students who will be in the building with us, and those that remain home – choosing or requiring remote instruction. We know that we may need to shift to all-remote instruction at any time.
Starting on 9/17/20, all students choosing to come to the building for in-person instruction will attend according to the following hybrid model:
All students will attend school in-person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:15 a.m.-12 p.m. with classes and services provided remotely (a mix of staff directed and independent work) in the afternoon.
All students will engage in remote learning on Wednesdays from 8:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.
