Re: Schedule Updates
The time for transitioning between learning platforms (traditional/in-person and virtual/remote) in Lee County Schools has expired. A variety of factors guides this decision. Aspects including the need for scheduling the upcoming Alabama Comprehensive Assessment Program (ACAP) and the ACT, and the fact the scope, sequence, and pacing of the curriculum in the two learning platforms do not exactly align are major contributors to this conclusion. Students are expected to close the 2020-2021 school year with their current learning platform.
Additionally, Lee County Schools is currently evaluating the success and effectiveness of the virtual/remote learning model used this school year during the pandemic. The goal is to return to traditional/in-person learning for all students for fall 2021. For grades 7 – 12, we are currently examining and revising our alternative learning environment offered in Salem, Alabama through the Lee County Learning Center (LC2). Revised application procedures will be available in early April. The school administrative and guidance counseling teams will provide this information once it is finalized.
