COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metrics for K-12 Education will help guide APS in decisions related to the suspension of In-School Learning and transition to NTI. Each Thursday the county incidence-rate map will be used to determine if In-School Learning may continue the following week. In the event of an increase in the community incidence rate in Jefferson County, which causes the county to move to a red (critical) level of disease activity, APS will move to NTI for the following week. A called Board meeting will be scheduled and held as needed to resume face-to-face instruction. Families will be notified by email and REACH Alert if that happens.
