DPS Reminds Families of Options for 2021-22 School Year

May. 27, 2021
 

Deadline to select remote learning is June 4

DENVER – Families and students in Denver Public Schools have until June 4 to select remote learning for the 2021-22 school year. Families who wish to opt-in to remote learning should complete the Learning Option Selection form on the Parent Portal, or call their school’s front office. Students who will be returning to full in-person learning next year do not need to take any action.

“We are ready to welcome students back to a more normal school year in the fall, as there is no substitute for in-person learning and the interactive, hands-on experiences with teachers,” said Dwight Jones, interim superintendent. “We also know many families may not feel comfortable with in-person learning given the uncertainty of the health conditions in the fall, and have worked hard to provide a robust and engaging fully remote option.”

Students in remote learning will not receive instruction from teachers at their current school during the year that they are enrolled in remote learning. However, students will keep their spot at their assigned school for the 2022-23 school year. Though remote learning is an option for some students, in many cases, remote learning may not meet a student’s needs. Families of students with IEPs and 504 Plans will need to work with the district individually to determine if the remote learning program is the right option for their student.

For more information, families and students are encouraged to review a detailed FAQ about what next year will look like for both in-person and remote learning, as well as the latest updates about vaccines.
