Next Phase of Re-Entry Plan

During a Special Board Meeting on November 23, 2020, Sandusky City Schools recommended a switch to 100% virtual learning for all students following fall break. This recommendation states that Sandusky City Schools will implement a 100% virtual platform beginning, Monday, November 30, 2020 through Monday, January 18, 2021. The in-person option for students will resume on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Parents who wish to continue their children on the virtual platform after January 19, 2021 may continue to do so. When the in-person and virtual option resumes on January 19, 2020, it is the intent of the district to continue with that option throughout the remainder of the 2020-2021 academic year. Additionally, this recommendation is contingent upon any other decision or determination made by the Governor of the State of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Education.

Possible Transportation Delays

We wanted to make you aware that due to staffing shortages with our transportation department, there may be delays in bus routes in the upcoming days. We are working to ensure this does not happen, however, we want families who utilize our buses to be aware. If there is any delay with a bus route, we will send an all call to the building it affects that day and we will share the delay information to our social media pages. We encourage you to pick up and drop off your student whenever possible. Thank you for being flexible during these unprecedented times 

A Letter from the Chief Academic Officer & Superintendent

We would like to thank you for your continued patience and support this school year. On Monday, October 19, 2020, we returned to face-to-face (in-person) instruction while placing a priority on the safety and social emotional well-being of our students and staff. Sandusky City Schools’ teachers and principals continue to work diligently to meet the demands of these unprecedented times. To this, the Senior Leadership Team has every confidence in the collective efforts of our employees to ensure that all students are safe and successful this school year.

It is important to remember that we must all remain flexible. The Senior Leadership Team will work to ensure we have transparent and on-going communication with all of our stakeholders. The goal of this letter is to provide an update on changes that impact academic achievement and instructional improvement in the following four areas:
1. Changes in the original teacher training days (Professional Development/Wavier Days)
2. Changes in the grade reporting procedure and timelines
3. Changes to our Parent Teacher Conference format
4. Understanding why we are testing your child (Formative Assessments)...
