This plan has been updated to reflect these new changes. Please continue to check this page for updates. More information and further reading links can be found below the table of contents.


Introduction

On November 12th, Mayor Hogsett and Dr. Caine from the Marion County Public Health Department announced that all Marion County schools are required to move to virtual learning for all K-12 students.

As of November 23rd, 2020, all FTCSC schools are conducting instruction in a fully virtual format.  Students who were utilizing the in-person option prior to November 23rd will receive instruction from their regular classroom teachers via Canvas/Google Classroom.  This page will be helpful in better understanding your child’s virtual instruction.

Students who were utilizing the online-only option prior to November 23rd will remain in that format.  K-5 students will remain with their online teachers and 6th-12th students will continue to work in Edmentum.

Per Marion County Public Health Order #35, students are scheduled to return to In-Person Instruction after the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, Tuesday, January 19th.

Social-Emotional Well-Being

We recognize the importance of providing students and staff with extra social and emotional support as they transition to online learning. Expect to see special welcome activities, extra time for building relationships and establishing new routines, and a focus on coping strategies. 

Where Can I Go for Mental Health/Social Emotional Support?  

Each school counselor in the district is available to assist families in need.  Resources include, but are not limited to:  Community Mental Health Centers, Conscious Discipline activities, Botvin Lifeskills, links to self-regulation and de escalation activities, and financial and community resources. This plan follows the IDOE ‘s Roadmap for SEL Re-entry.

  • Staff Professional development is provided to ensure staff acquire the knowledge to support social and emotional needs for our students and families.
  • School counselors will monitor student needs through ongoing communication with staff.
  • School mental health providers and counselors will be available to students and families in need of extra support to deal with grief and closure arising from what was lost at the end of last school year.
