Planning the 20-21 School Year - Continuity of Learning


While it is likely that school will look different in 2020-21, we don’t know exactly what that will look like yet. It is also likely that it will need to look different at different times during the school year. In order to provide the greatest continuity of learning possible, the following sections outline considerations and guidance for maximizing instruction in different scenarios.


Roadmap to In-Person Learning

Gov. Polis released a report from his Back-to-School Working Group (PDF) to provide districts with a roadmap to getting back to safe in-person learning for the winter/spring semester. The state’s goal is to get back to safe, consistent in-person learning for the second half of the 2020-21 school year.

Additionally, the governor’s office also drafted two cover letters, one for parents/caregivers (PDF) and one for educators and school staff (PDF), that go along with the report. The governor’s office encourages district and school leaders to share these resources widely.
