TUSCARAWAS COUNTY- Indian Valley Local announces restart plan for the upcoming school year

(Gnadenhutten, Ohio) – The Indian Valley Local School District is announcing plans for the 2020-2021 school year.

“In planning to reopen our school buildings, we are motivated to deliver a service model reflective of the feedback you provided through our Family Partnership Survey in June,” explained Indian Valley Superintendent Ira Wentworth. “We are confident that our experiences last spring have made us better when planning for the 2020-2021 school year.”

The district will be moving forward with the following layout:

  1. In-Person: Students will attend school onsite, in a school building, five days a week.  This is our preferred and recommended model. 
  2. Synchronous Remote: Students will learn remotely from home with access to a live Indian Valley teacher through an online Zoom platform.
  3. Flexible Remote: Students will learn remotely from home through the use of computer guided curriculum.
  4. No Internet Remote: Families wanting their student to learn through this delivery model must contact their building principal for details. 

The district also created the following video to outline the instruction options available to families:

Wentworth added, “additionally, certain conditions may prompt public health officials to issue alerts or orders that necessitate many, or all, of our students having to learn remotely for an indefinite period of time.”

The detailed layout of all instructional options can be found here. The district is asking parents to complete this survey by Wednesday, July 22nd indicating which option they will choose for their students.
