WA School Reopening: 2020-2021

During this unprecedented time, West Allegheny School District remains commited to providing equitable and inclusive learning opportunities for ALL students.
 
West Allegheny intends to offer four educational delivery models during the 2020-2021 school year to accommodate families with differing needs. The first model is In-Person Instruction for all students in grades K-12 in accordance with all CDC and PDE requirements. In the event the Governor and/or Allegheny County Health Department warrant reductions in occupancy requiring us to limit the number of students in our schools/classrooms, the District may modify the five-day in person model by moving toward a hybrid-model with alternating in-person instructional days. The second model is Synchronous Online Learning for students in grades K-8. This model will allow students to remain home and receive virtual instruction from District assigned teachers. The third model is the West Allegheny Virtual Academy (WAVA), which provides asynchronous remote learning instruction for students in grades K-12.  The fourth model is the Hybrid (9-12) Model, which provides both in-person and WAVA high school courses with blended schedules and increased flexibility. 

To learn more about our four learning options, please see the Educational Delivery Options to the right. Students will participate in both in-person courses and courses offered virtually through WAVA. Students will build their schedules from a selection of 137 in-person courses and 136 HS WAVA courses. Blended schedules will require students to spend less time at school offering families increased flexibility.
