As we prepare for this very unique school year, we want to answer any questions that you may have about our schedule and how we plan to help students thrive in this new environment. Here, we provide you with all of the information you need as well as important dates and timelines. Following is the schedule for the Dearborn STEP assessment school year, including opening with a hybrid model of remote and in-person learning:

 

Week One: September 8-11

Dearborn STEP assessment will begin on Sept 8-11. We will start with an early release for the first week of school. This will give our team and students a chance to acclimate to returning to school after being remote for such a significant period of time during the previous school year. It will also help STEP provide a slower pace for students and allow us to see what changes we need to make in the program prior to resuming a full time schedule.

 

  • From Monday to Friday, students will attend STEP from 8:15 a.m.-12: 15 p.m. for in-person learning

  • There will be no remote learning in the afternoon. However, there will be a clinical check after the student arrives home

 

Week Two: September 14–18

Dearborn STEP assessment will offer a hybrid model which blends in-person learning with remote learning. This will give students a chance to set up and practice the remote learning model with our STEP team in the event that we need to quickly pivot to fully remote later. This will also give STEP staff the time to strategize about any changes needed to help students successfully manage the environment, as well as any adjustments we need to make to our COVID-19 practice prior to going full time the week of September 21.

 

  • From Monday to Friday, students will attend STEP from 8:15 a.m.-12: 15 p.m. for in-person learning

  • The STEP team will provide remote learning for students in the afternoon until the end of the school day (approximately 2:30 p.m.).

 

Week Three: Sept 21, 2020 and ongoing

Dearborn STEP assessment will offer a full in-person schedule:

 

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8:15 a.m.-2: 30 pm.   

  • Wednesday: 8:15 a.m.-12: 45 p.m.
