Once you've completed the back-to-school decision guide, you may be ready to look at the different options available to your family. This guide identifies three options and can help families to choose the path that fits their priorities best.
An in-person option may be ideal for families who have low health risks or whose children are unable to learn remotely.
Virtual programs allow families to continue structured education in their homes. These types of programs may help families who have higher levels of health risks.
Family-based programs, such as homeschooling, may be best for families who need a lot of flexibility or who have high health risks.
Important Note: Program and provider names in the roadmap images are offered as examples only. To learn about programs and providers near you, search the service provider directory, call/text 440-570-5908 (para español: 440-907-9130) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Options with this icon indicate that families should call the program/provider to find out if a program is available to meet their child's needs.
Have a backup plan! In-person programming may be discontinued with little notice if virus outbreaks become dangerous. Make sure that you have a back-up plan that works for your family if the in-person program you select is forced to go to a virtual format.
Have a backup plan! Even in virtual programs, providers can become ill and may be unable to teach for extended periods.
Have a backup plan! Keep in mind that providers offering supportive services may become ill and be unable to provide services to extended periods.
