We have four important updates for you today, all of which should assist tremendously in helping you make the best possible enrollment decision for the upcoming school year.
- A message from Supt. Miller.
- Our Distance Learning Guidelines are now posted at bixbyps.info/returntolearn.
- Bixby Public Schools is excited to launch our revamped, full-time virtual school, Spartan Connection Academy as an enrollment option for families in grades K-12. Spartan Connection offers families the flexibility of a full-time online learning platform, paired with the familiar face and instructional expertise of a Bixby teacher. Visit bixbyps.info/spartanconnection to view the entire procedure manual and learn more about this program.
For those who choose to enroll in Spartan Connection Academy, full-time virtual school, we have extended the deadline to notify your principal to Monday, July 27th. We are hopeful this will give families the time they need to review the materials we’ve posted today and make an informed decision.
We will be working together as a district team throughout the week to answer any questions you may have as you consider the enrollment options.
Most of all, please remember, it is our first priority to support the needs of each and every student and staff member today, and every day. If you have questions or if we can help in any way, we are here.
This evening, July 16th, the Bixby Board of Education approved the BPS 2020-2021 Return to Learn Guide.
Please visit bixbyps.info/returntolearn to access the full guide, enrollment option descriptions, family screening checklist, etc. The page will house all things related to COVID-19 Procedures and Protocols, including (coming soon) distance learning guidelines.
In order to monitor feedback closely and allow us to address concerns as a district team, please refer all questions, comments, and concerns related to these topics to our feedback form. A member of our district team will strive to get back with anyone wishing for a response in 24-48 hours.
