Individual School Metrics & Learning Model Recommendations

  • The Florence Unified School District Governing Board prioritizes the academic, social-emotional, and physical well being of students and staff. During the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is the goal of FUSD to mitigate the spread of the virus within its schools and within the community. FUSD will continue in-person instruction for those enrolled until, due to the spread of COVID-19, the following guidelines show the need for a change to the hybrid A-L M-Z model of instruction or a return to the distance learning model used during the first quarter of the school year.

    If Guidelines established by Florence Unified School District show confirmed active positive COVID-19 cases of students and staff per week equal to or higher than 1% for high school and 1.5% for K8 that specific school will move to a hybrid model of instruction for two weeks. If confirmed active positive COVID-19 cases of students and staff per week are equal to or higher than 2% for high school and 3% for K8 that specific school will move to a distance model of instruction for two weeks The superintendent will make the decision based on the confirmed active positive COVID-19 cases reported on a weekly basis on the Florence Unified School District COVID-19 Dashboard.

    The purpose of this change is to limit the spread of the virus by reducing the number of students on campus at any one time.
