Fall Focus Groups

DOWNLOAD: Draft Hybrid Learning Information Sheet

South Washington County Schools (SoWashCo) conducted virtual focus groups to inform the work of our planning teams for a successful start to the school year.

The focus groups are centered on hybrid learning in which students will learn through a combination of distance learning at home and in-person learning at school with strict social distancing measures in place.

Hybrid learning is just one of three plans being considered for schools this fall. The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is scheduled to announce the plan that all schools will follow on Thursday, July 30. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, our plans must be able to shift between distance learning, in-person learning or a hybrid, which is a combination of both.  


If you were unable to attend one of the virtual focus groups please watch the video of a recorded session. The survey is now closed.
