Beginning of Year Information

Dear South-Western Families,

In our most recent conversation with Columbus Public Health and Franklin County Public Health, they shared current COVID-19 information. The positivity rates, case counts, and trendlines are not conducive to opening schools in a hybrid model. They are recommending a continuing trend of decreasing rates before blended learning takes place. In alignment with this guidance, we will be starting the 2020-2021 school year in a 100% remote learning model. For all practical purposes, our operations will mirror the protocols that existed in May and June.

Our instructional delivery models we have been preparing for will not need to change. We fundamentally believe that our students and schools will experience face-to-face learning at some point throughout the 2020-2021 school year. If you have any concerns about your child attending school in a face-to-face learning environment at any point during the school year or if this is not feasible for your family, please take advantage of the opportunity to sign your child(ren) up for our South-Western Virtual Learning Academy by August 7.

This will be a fluid situation and making the decisions regarding when to transition between learning scenarios is not easy, but we will continue to consider all of the guidance and data available to us. The time period in which we enter the different face-to-face learning scenarios will depend upon various local data points, circumstances, and agency recommendations at that particular point in time.

We recognize the anxiety and frustration this situation is causing. Our goal is to provide an optimal learning environment without compromising the health and safety of students and staff. More information will be provided over the next few weeks as we continue to keep you informed during this ever-changing time.


Stay healthy. Stay safe.


Dr. Bill Wise, Superintendent
