Spring 21 Opening ZOOM
The Fayette County Public School Board met to discuss the opening of school for the Spring 2021 semester. After reviewing COVID-19 data provided by the Fayette County Health Department, in tandem with other external data, the board agreed to continue with remote learning beginning, Thursday, January 7 - Friday, January 22.
The school board will continue to review data from the local health department to determine if in-person instruction will begin, Monday, January 25. The district is committed to communicating with families weekly concerning this matter.
The STEAM Academy administrators have scheduled ZOOM meetings with grade level students on Thursday, January 7th at 8:00am.
The purpose of these meetings is to discuss the master schedule, attendance, and student schedules. We will also discuss how students should log on to their classes for Thursday and Friday of this week.
Attendance at the meeting is mandatory as this will be the first day of school for the spring semester.
Guardians, you are welcome to attend the meeting with your student.
Please see below information pertaining to your specific grade level and when your ZOOM meeting will occur. Links to the ZOOMs were sent out through Infinite Campus messenger.
If you did not receive a link to the ZOOM please email email@example.com
Students who are only taking classes on the BCTC campus do not need to attend these ZOOMs as you will meet with Mr. Flores and Mr. Ridd Friday morning on a separate ZOOM.
Freshmen and Sophomores
Juniors and Seniors
It is important that prior to these meetings on Thursday morning, students log into Infinite Campus to locate their new Spring semester courses. Please know that these schedules
may change from this evening until Thursday morning as we work tomorrow to finalize rosters. Please make sure to log-in Thursday morning to see your student’s final schedule. We will not be able to facilitate any schedule changes at this time as our schedule is very limited. We will only make changes if a mistake has been made on course placement.
We look forward to seeing the students on Thursday morning.
STEAM Academy In-Person and Remote Learning Plan
Fayette County Public Schools and STEAM Academy are preparing to offer in-person instruction for students whose families choose to send their children back to campus and
remote instruction for families who choose to keep their children at home. While plans are being made with an eye toward January 2021, students will only return to campus if it is safe to do so.
In collaboration with families and employees, each school has developed a school-specific plan in consultation with its School-Based Decision Making Council, aligned to the state’s “Guidance on Safety Expectations and Best Practices for Kentucky Schools (K-12), (Appendix A) and Fayette County Public Schools procedures.
