Blended Learning Experience

Should different regulations be enacted (1.5 meter distancing between middle and high school students, for example), the campus will be open with some students safely learning in-person on campus and other students learning from home. The mixture between on-campus and virtual learning will be adjusted to meet these guidelines. Priority will be given to on-campus learning, and, according to Dutch government and school guidelines, teachers will foster learning in the most sustainable and time-efficient way possible. Specifically, teachers cannot be required to teach in person all day and online in the evening. We will use schedules and curricula that balance academic rigor with student wellbeing.
