August 18, 2020
The spring of 2020 brought about unprecedented changes to our educational system. As we looked towards the 2020-2021 academic year, the staff at Akron Preparatory School took steps to ensure we would be able to offer students an opportunity to return to the building. Our efforts were magnified when Governor DeWine announced that schools were permitted to reopen for in-person instruction.
In preparation for the academic year, we conducted a parent survey to ensure we were meeting the needs of our families. Through this survey, it was determined that families deserved the opportunity to decide how instruction would be delivered to their scholars. Therefore, families were asked to choose between three learning options: traditional instruction, remote learning, or hybrid instruction. We secured PPE, sanitation support, signage for buildings, and began planning for the return of our scholars.
After carefully considering the health and safety of the students, staff, and community, it is with great sadness we must inform you of the Board of Directors’ decision to forgo the traditional and hybrid learning options. Due to the Akron Preparatory School Board’s decision on August 13, 2020, the traditional and hybrid learning options are no longer available to our families. As a result, all scholars will be enrolled in a virtual learning modality for the first nine weeks of school.
We share your disappointment with this decision. However, we are committed to providing the scholars of Akron Preparatory School with a successful virtual learning experience.
Should you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Ashley Miles at (330) 612-5621.
Yours in Education,
Akron Preparatory School Administration
