Start of the 2020-2021 school year


August 10th represents the first day of the new school year as well as the start of what will now be our new normal.
 

The COVID-19 pandemic has generated a sense of uncertainty in a number of sectors. As such, the School has decided upon three different learning models for the 2020-2021 school year. It is important to note that the learning model with which we open the new school year will depend on the health conditions being faced in August.

 

PAS B-Learning Model:

This model combines face-to-face learning with coordinated online experiences. The PAS B-Learning Model provides face-to-face learning 40-50% of the time while leveraging digital experiences for the 50-60%. Furthermore, physical distancing and density reduction are introduced as key strategies to further reduce exposure within our community, while at the same time providing face-to-face interaction between students and teachers. Please note that said interactions are carried out under strict compliance with health screening, classroom, and hightraffic area guidelines. 

Distance Learning Model:

If the risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19 remains high and we are unable to return to normal operations, the 2020-2021 school year will open with the Distance Learning Model. Through new digital platforms and learning tools, students will attend school virtually through synchronous and asynchronous lessons, activities, and projectsDistance Learning Model: If the risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19 remains high and we are unable to return to normal operations, the 2020-2021 school year will open with the Distance Learning Model.

Face-to-Face Learning Model:

This model would be implemented only when risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19 is considered by education and health authorities to be low enough that greater student density in classrooms and in common areas is considered acceptable. This is a traditional school experience with students attending school in person five days a week. Preventative hygiene policies are implemented in combination with realistic physical distancing guidelines in order to safeguard the health of all community members.

The American School of Puebla seeks to be the institution that anticipates local and global challenges, with these new educational alternatives, parents and students can be sure that the future of these and the new generations are in good hands.
