On Friday, September 1, 2023, Bartlesville Public Schools will have a scheduled District Collaboration/Virtual Learning day.
Most elementary students will be issued Chromebooks and secondary students will use their usual Chromebooks for family-supported learning to be done at each student’s own pace that day. Completion of online tasks before Tuesday, or submittal of any paper assignments on Tuesday, will be used for student attendance on the District Collaboration/Virtual Learning day. (There will be no classes on Monday, September 4 because of the Labor Day holiday.)
Teachers will be on-campus on Friday for collaboration. The academic calendar includes three scheduled District Collaboration/Virtual Learning days in the first semester to provide teachers common planning times with colleagues to collaborate on lesson plans, including analyzing student assessment results to improve our curricula. The days also provide teachers opportunities to share ideas and resources across grade levels and buildings to improve learning across each school and the district.
Additional District Collaboration/Virtual Learning days are scheduled for Wednesday, October 11 before Fall Break and for Friday, December 1. In the second semester, there are District Collaboration days on January 15, 2024 and February 19, 2024, but those will be in-service days with no classes, rather than Virtual Learning days.
