i3 Safe for Me

COVID-19 Plan


There is still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Research indicates that outbreaks will fluctuate throughout the year, but parents and guardians will continue to work and students will continue to learn. Schools across the nation are faced with difficult decisions on how and when to reopen. The I3 Academy COVID team has created the I3 Safe for Me plan in order to communicate the learning formats and safeguards that will be implemented, contributing to an effective learning environment.

We will communicate regularly with the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) and follow CDC guidelines throughout every operational aspect of the school. There may be points when heightened measures are in place, including the requirement for all students and staff members to work remotely, if a positive case arises or there is a substantial increase in community spread. Conversely, all measures listed in this document will not be necessary throughout the school year. Any decision will be based on data and the advice of experts in public health.

Our desire is that families who choose the in person or hybrid format will feel safe sending their child to school. The health of our students and staff is our primary concern.

School Commitment

We are asking all stakeholders to do their part to keep I3 Academy safe and healthy. The I3 Academy team is committed to keeping students and staff safe and healthy. The key points of our commitment are the following:

  • Communication will be of utmost importance regarding new and continuing developments. 
  • Student dignity and privacy are always a priority, but will be treated with extra care as we manage potential and actual COVID-19 cases in our community. 
  • School cleanliness, hand hygiene, and social distancing will be implemented to the best of our ability. 
  • I3 family preferences and needs will be honored when possible. 
  • Access to high-quality teachers and curricula will be a priority in all learning formats. 
  • Support services for special populations (special education, 504, gifted, etc.) will be in place for all learning formats. 
  • Every effort will be made to ensure access to technology is not a barrier for any family.

Learning Formats

I3 Academy is taking a multifaceted approach that offers several options to our families. From August 20th through September 30th, you may choose the following learning format for your child.

 

  • Remote: All learning will be completed from home through a combination of live and recorded teaching sessions, paper and electronic assignments and projects, and video conferencing. Small groups with the teacher will be offered. This will be scheduled by your child’s teacher. 

  • Hybrid: Students will attend school on campus for a combination of days. On the days students are not on campus, learning will continue from home through remote sessions and at-home assignments. 

  • In-person: Students will attend school on campus from 8 AM to 3 PM on Monday through Friday.
