The District’s primary structure of the hybrid instructional model requires that students be divided into three student cohorts. Students in Cohort A attend school face-to-face on Mondays and Tuesdays and engage in distance education on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Students in Cohort B attend school face-to-face on Thursdays and Fridays and engage in distance education on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Therefore, students in Cohorts A and B receive learning opportunities that incorporate both face-to-face instruction at the school in the classroom and distance education at home through synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Students in Cohort C engage in full-time distance education all days and receive learning opportunities that include distance education at home through synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
Canvas will continue to serve as the District’s Learning Management System for all teachers and students to promote consistency with the transition from face-to-face instruction and distance education within the hybrid instructional model. Students are required to access Canvas by signing on to Clever, the District’s single, sign-on platform. Google Meet and Google Classroom and other resources may be utilized only if they are accessed by students in Canvas. Site administrators are required to continually monitor Canvas to ensure all teachers follow this requirement.
As students will be participating in face-to-face instruction and distance education with the utilization of Canvas and other technology tools; therefore, all students will transport Chromebooks between home and school. There may be situations in alignment with health and safety protocols that require a cohort and/or school to transition to full-time distance education; therefore, students must have their Chromebooks to seamlessly transition from the hybrid instructional model to full-time distance education, as necessary.
All schools will adhere to the school bell schedules that were approved in August 2020. All schools will implement a student instructional day consisting of six hours and 11 minutes, which will include face-to-face instruction and synchronous and asynchronous sessions. Schools with extended days, including but not limited to, Prime 6 Schools, Zoom, Innovative Eight Middle Schools, and some magnet schools, will continue to provide the extended days for students and teachers during the hybrid instructional model.
During the hybrid instructional model, parents/guardians will access student progress reports and report cards through Campus Parent by clicking on the Documents Tab on the Index Menu. This method allows immediate access for parents/guardians to review students’ progress and grades. As parents/guardians have immediate access to grades through Campus Parent, schools will no longer print and distribute progress reports and the District will no longer print and mail report cards home. Parents/guardians who require a printed report may contact their student’s school to request a copy.
If possible, academic parent/guardian meetings, including Section 504 Accommodation Plans and IEP meetings, should be done virtually but may be conducted in person depending on the circumstances. Parents/guardians visiting schools for academic meetings must make an appointment and follow all visitor protocols. To learn more, view the full Hybrid Instructional Model Implementation Guide (PDF).

The parks and recreation departments and other providers in each jurisdiction are committed to providing Safekey for students in the hybrid instructional model. Providers will work with CCSD and school principals to determine the number of students who can be accommodated, while following all health and safety guidelines. In addition, After-School All-Stars Las Vegas and Communities in Schools may also begin operations at school sites. These organizations will work directly with designated personnel and school principals to initiate planning. For more information, view the full Hybrid Instructional Model Implementation Guide (PDF).
Drinking fountains located in the classrooms, outside, and in other areas of the school will not be utilized. For more information, view the full Hybrid Instructional Model Implementation Guide (PDF).
Parents/guardians and volunteers will not be permitted on campus to volunteer and/or assist in classrooms. For more information, view the full Hybrid Instructional Model Implementation Guide (PDF).

Language development can be supported through both face-to-face instruction and distance education by integrating learning activities connected to the four language domains and incorporating the established WIDA language development standards K-12 ELD Standards.
