Instructional Taskforce

In partnership with Puyallup Education Association, the District formed a taskforce to examine two instructional models for reopening schools in September. 

  •      • Continuous (Distance) Learning 2.0

  •      • Split or Rotating In-Person Schedules with Continuous (Distance) Learning

The taskforce work will align with guidance from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Department of Health and provide us with a recommended instructional model to be implemented quickly in the event of a future outbreak.

Based off this recommendation, operational aspects will be analyzed by departments (Human Resources, Food and Nutrition Services, Transportation, etc.) and with their lens of expertise, come up with operational models to support instruction.

Goals and Objectives

Aligning work with OSPI guidance, the taskforce will ...

  1.      1. Examine two non-traditional instructional models.

  1.      2. Design implementation plans for each of the non-traditional instructional models.
