    2020-2021 School Year Plan

    Union R-XI School District / District / 2020-2021 School Year Plan


    Union R-XI Families,

    We hope you and your family have had an enjoyable summer. We have missed you and are looking forward to welcoming our students back to learning on August 26th. As a learning community, we are facing a global pandemic never before seen in any of our lifetimes. The impact on our school family has been significant. Unfortunately, it is expected to continue for an extended period. The guidelines for our 2020-2021 School Year Plan are based on current recommendations from government agencies, health departments, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Adjustments will be made as guidelines are updated.

    The Union R-XI School District is committed to:

    • Keeping students and staff as physically safe and emotionally healthy as possible

    • Ensuring access and equity for all students

    • Communicating with stakeholders, such as staff, families, and community partners

    • Ensuring flexibility to meet the social, emotional, and learning needs of all students, while maintaining fiscal responsibility

    • Supporting readiness and progress in teaching and learning whether in person or at a distance

    The primary decision driver will be the health recommendations and guidance shared with us by the government agencies with whom we partner. Another guiding source will be directives outlined by the Governor’s office regarding stay at home/closures orders, and any requirements for social distancing. The level of infection, the spread of the virus, and response regarding the disease in our community will be at the forefront of our decision making as we move to reopen our schools. The health and safety of our students, our staff, and their families is our primary concern.

    Union R-XI  2020-2021 Educational Plans


    In Early August, our Board of Education Meeting voted to begin the 2020-2021 school year in person with a virtual option for families to choose from.  In our 2020-2021 School Year Plan, we offer two learning options for grades K-12.  K-12 families will be choosing between Union R-XI School-Based Learning or our new virtual learning platform, Wildcat@Home.
    Option 1, School-Based Learning has 3 levels:  

    • Level 1: At School Schedule - all students in person for traditional learning, 

    • Level 2: Blended Schedule in person part time and virtual part time, or 

    • Level 3: Connect at Home Schedule which is full virtual instruction if we are directed by the Franklin County Department of Public Health or State of Missouri to limit the number of students in a building or completely shut down due to the spread of COVID-19.  Our plan also contains information about home health screenings, transportation, meal service, social distancing, and the cleaning of our facilities to name a few.

    Option 2, Wildcat@Home - All Virtual Plan
