• Return to School Learning 2020

    Posted by Adam Laningham on 7/8/2020

    Dear Renaissance Families,


    The DVUSD Renaissance Programs will be part of the Return to School On Campus option and Return to School On Flex option. The On Flex option is a short-term virtual learning model transitioning students to online learning with a DVUSD teacher for a short interval of time (4-5 weeks) and then returning back to on campus learning for the remainder of the year.


    Renaissance students will be part of their program with our Renaissance teachers either way. The goal of the On Flex option is that a student may be in a virtual learning environment for a short period of time (4-5 weeks) and then return to on-campus. If DVUSD needs to move to a Virtual for All model, based on a Governor Ducey's decision to close schools, students will maintain the continuity with their Renaissance teacher and classmates.


    The Deer Valley Online Academy option does not offer Renaissance. Families who opt for this model will leave the Renaissance program and enroll in the Online Academy for the school year. We will, however, hold their spot if they wish to return to Renaissance the following year. The Online Academy will have gifted services and options at all grade levels. Details on this should be posting soon.


    I hope this helps. More information should be coming out throughout the summer as decisions are made and we adjust to the current situation.


    -Adam Laningham
