2020-21 School Year Plan

As the Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) prepares for and navigates the 2020-21 school year, we are committed to keeping our families, staff, students, and community members informed. While there are still many uncertainties regarding what the upcoming school year will look like, we are hard at work to ensure our students continue to have access to a high-quality educational experience. 

The situation surrounding COVID-19 is evolving with time. We will regularly update this page as our plans are finalized. We encourage you to keep checking back for the latest information. 

2020-21 School Year Plan

On August 17, 2020, District administration announced that students in grades 4K-5 will begin the school year in our Hybrid Learning Model (Model 3) instead of our Modified In-person Learning Model (Model 2) as previously communicated. This change only affects our students in grades 5 and younger, as students in grades 6 through 12 were already starting the year in our Hybrid Learning Model. Additionally, during the meeting the Board of Education approved the Addendum to the OASD 2020-21 School Year Plan, which details the criteria that the administration will use for transitioning between instructional models before and during the 2020-21 school year. Additional information was shared with families via the IC Parent Portal, and with staff via internal email (HERE). Information will continue to be shared with families and staff as quickly as possible.

Key Points: As of August 17, ALL OASD schools (elementary, middle and high) will be in the District's Hybrid Learning Model (Model 3) to begin the 2020-2021 school year. As a reminder, movement between instructional models will be made in consultation with the Winnebago County Health Department based on the ongoing state of COVID-19 in OASD boundaries.

  • Hybrid Learning (Model 3) - Mix of in-person and remote/virtual learning with reduced student capacity; students attend school in-person every other day and work remotely on the other days.
