In a July 29, 2020, letter to Everett School District families, Superintendent Ian Saltzman announced 100% of fall classes will be held remotely because of Snohomish County’s COVID-19 case resurgence.

He wrote, “At this time, we plan for our students to begin the 2020-21 school year in a 100% remote model, using a staged approach for in-person reentry into school buildings.”

Saltzman told families that the final plan is still being determined, but details regarding schedules, attendance, and grading will be communicated in an August Parent University.

In his letter Saltzman introduced the district’s staged 2020-2021 learning model.

He wrote, “Staged reentry to schools will be determined by the impacts of a changing COVID-19 pandemic, available resources, direction from Snohomish Health District, OSPI and our Governor.”

“There are three scenarios for teaching and learning: 100% in-person learning, hybrid learning, and 100% remote learning.”

Here are the Everett School District’s Learning Model stages:

Stage 1: 100% Remote Learning

  • All students participate in distance learning.

Stage 2: Hybrid Learning

  • Some students will participate onsite with in-person instruction two (2) days a week. This set of students will be more clearly defined in September, as the COVID progression is monitored by the health district and guidance from OSPI and the state are finalized. All other students participate in remote learning. 

Stage 3: Hybrid Learning

  • Students from stage 2, as well as an additional cohort of students will be onsite with in-person instruction two (2) days a week. This set of students will be more clearly defined in September. All other students participate in remote learning. 

Stage 4: Hybrid Learning

  • Students from stage 2 and 3, as well as an additional cohort of students will be onsite with in-person instruction two (2) days a week. This set of students will be more clearly defined in September. All other students participate in remote learning.

Stage 5: 100% In-Person Learning

  • All students and staff participate onsite with in-person instruction five (5) days a week.
