Modified In-Person Schedule

All students will attend the New Philadelphia City Schools on a modified schedule with restrictions. 


Safety Precautions Include

  • 6' Spacing Required at All Times 

  • If grade level cannot accommodate 6' spacing, then that entire grade level goes to a modified in-person schedule.   (M/TH or T/F - Non-in-person days are remote learning days) 

It is possible that one building or grade level or more are 100% in-person 5 days per week, while other grade levels will need to be a modified schedule (Remote/In-Person)

  • Students in a Level 3 Special Education class will attend in-person at least 4 days per week

  • Busing continues its regular schedule with masks/facial coverings required for all riders in 4th-12th grades

  • IEP teams will create remote learning plans for each student with a disability

  • All staff required to wear a mask/facial covering per policy.

  • Mask/facial coverings are required for students in 4th-12th grades, unless one of the exceptions listed in Policy EBEA is met  

  • K-12 will follow a 1:1 ratio for student-to-devices (Chromebooks)

  • Enhanced & more robust cleaning, disinfecting, & PPE will be implemented in accordance with guidelines

  • We are prepared with the ability to adapt Plan B, while still having all students learn in-person at school for some portion of the week. (e.g. Have teachers change classes instead of students, Lunch in the classroom, Requiring masks in hallways)

Student Expectations

During any remote learning day, students are expected to complete the lessons and assignments as indicated by the teacher. The lessons will be posted by 8:00 am on the scheduled day.   Assignments will be due by 8:00 am the following school day unless otherwise indicated by the teacher.  To be considered present for a remote learning day, students need to log-into their accounts, participate in the lesson, and complete the assignments.  Daily time expectations for remote learning is between 5 and 5.5 hours.  Failure to complete lessons and assignments during remote learning will have the same consequences as during in-person learning.  Grading practices are the same as traditional in-person schooling (Plan A).   


Adjust & Adapt

As a reminder, plans are “at this moment”, and we will continue to re-evaluate based on evolving conditions, data about the status of the pandemic, and recommendations and guidance from public health authorities and the scientific community.
