Distance Learning or In-person 4 days per week, you have a choice
Under the Guidance of Pennsylvania Department of Education, Pennsylvania Department of Health, Allegheny County Health Department.
City High's enhanced distance learning models were designed to be flexibile and provide the safest learning environments while keeping a consistent learning schedule for students and all of their classmates and techers as we carefully follow the “Level of Transmissions” in Allegheny County.
City High’s Full Livestream Ready model schedule is flexible and ready to phase back into and out of the GO Hybrid model if needed. Parents may choose Full Livestream Ready for their student's entire Trimester 3 if desired.
MODERATE & SUBSTANTIAL LEVEL Community Transmission
City High’s GO-Hybrid schedule is designed for a flexible transition to full virtual schedule if needed, which means that the in-person days will simply take place virtually.
Advisory & Lunch would be combined for an hour break on virtual days
School work will be completed within livestreamed classes which will minimize additional independent work.
Students return to in-person classrooms four days per week with their livestream synchronized learning classmates.
Designed for a flexible transition from virtual to in-person, or back to full virtual if needed, students continue with their same schedule, classmates, and teachers as they look towards everyone returning to full in-person.
LOW LEVEL & MODERATE Community Transmission
4 - Full Day Model: Students come in-person four days per week Tuesday through Friday
No classes on Monday, but some teacher support is available.
Co-teachers will be placed in every classroom when possible.
During in-person days, the traditional City High model will be implemented including:
|Level of Community Transmission in the County||Incidence Rate per 100,000 Residents
|AND/OR||PCR Percent Positivity (Most Recent 7 Days)||
