To ensure students receive a robust education, TCSD is offering full-time in-person and remote learning academic options. Families will be able to choose to enroll their children in either online or in-person classes. In-person school will re-open as scheduled on August 25. The first two weeks of school for 2nd-12th grade will be on an early release schedule. First grade will be on an early release schedule for the first three weeks of school. Kindergarten will begin on September 8. For additional calendar information, go to the TCSD 2020-2021 school year calendar. Online schools may operate on a different schedule. 

Students who participate in online learning will still be considered a part of a TCSD neighborhood school through which they can obtain non-academic services and participate in extracurriculars. Accommodations for students receiving Special Education or English Language Learning services will be made with individual families. TCSD schools will work with families individually on attendance if needed.

IN-PERSON LEARNING: Students will attend school Monday through Thursday. On Friday they will participate in a digital learning day. Friday is considered a half-day for students and should be treated as such. Teachers will use this day for training, professional development, and preparation. Students attending the Necessarily Existing Small Schools, (Wendover, Ibapah, Dugway, and Vernon), will attend school Monday through Wednesday. On Thursday they will participate in a digital day of learning. Classes may be held outdoors, in auditoriums, or other locations where possible and when appropriate for curriculum.

FULL-TIME ONLINE LEARNING: Students who are unable to return to school due to health issues, or those who are uncomfortable returning to school on the scheduled start date, can participate in the district’s full-time online schools. There are also select hybrid class options available for 7th-12th grade students. If a student chooses to move to an online learning program, they must enroll in an online school. Please note, full-time online students will be dis-enrolled from their 'brick-and-mortar' school when they enroll in an online school. For more information about online learning go to http://www.tooeleschools.org/apps/pages/onlineoptions. Students must register if they choose to move to an online learning platform. 

*As part of our Digital Teaching & Learning Initiative, ALL students will eventually be issued an electronic device. These devices are currently on backorder and expected in September. Until the school district receives the purchased Chrome books, students can borrow an electronic device if requested. For information about Google Classroom or Canvas, visit our Educational Technology website.
