• Learning Model Status as of 7/30/2021 IN-PERSON LEARNING


  • The decision to offer virtual/remote, hybrid, or in-person learning is determined by local school districts. RLAS-116 will continue to make data-informed decisions about their learning model during the COVID-19 pandemic using health metrics and data provided by the Lake County Health Department School Decision Dashboard and other local and regional resources. 

    Learning Model Definitions

    • Virtual/Remote Learning: Students learn from a remote location outside of the school setting.
    • Hybrid Learning: Students learn from a combination of virtual/remote and in-person learning settings.
    • In-Person Learning: Students learn inside the school setting.


    Important Note:

    Other information used in making decisions about which instructional model the District is implementing include:

    1. Workforce availability of active staff and substitutes - The COVID-19 pandemic may impact staffing availability due to illnesses and quarantine/isolation requirements.
    2. PPE availability and safety protocol information - Safety requirements have continued to change during the pandemic which may require adjustments to the District’s current safety procedures.


    Dashboard Data

    Determinations of the type of learning model will be made by:
