Hybrid Learning

BUHSD Hybrid Learning Plan

With the Covid-19 pandemic, and the overarching need to keep students and staff physically safe, BUHSD began the 2020-21 school year with families choosing between Distance Learning (with the plan to progress to hybrid and then full in-person when reasonably safe to do so) or Online Learning (using Edgenuity through our LcOnline program for the full semester). 

As a District and School Community, we want to provide as much support and opportunity for students as we can during these uncertain times.  Recognizing that Distance Learning is not the learning modality that most of our students or teachers are accustomed to or would choose under normal circumstances, we are excited to move forward with the next phase of our school re-opening plan; bringing Distance Learning students who choose to do so back on campus using a hybrid learning model.

As we transition into this phase, we will be returning to the previous start and end times for each campus; although the bell schedules will be altered slightly from what has been used in the past.  Students will be divided into two groups.  One group will attend classes on campus and in-person on Mondays and Thursdays, and will be distance learning on Tuesdays and Fridays.  The other group will attend classes on campus and in-person on Tuesdays and Fridays, and will be distance learning on Mondays and Thursdays.  All students will be distance learning on Wednesdays following a late start bell schedule specific to that day.  Students will be expected to be in class each period; whether it is an in-person or distance learning day for their group.  

As a District and School Community, we recognize that in order for learning to take place, accountability and structure are key.  There is course content that needs to be taught and course competencies that need to be learned in order to prepare students for the coursework and life experiences that will come in future years.  It is also important at this time that mitigation strategies be followed to keep all students and staff as safe as possible.  These parameters are intended to make that happen for our students.
