Over the last week, district staff have been working through the state’s revised Safe Learning Plan, analyzing our district data, and doing careful and thoughtful planning around our district learning models. On Monday, March 22 we will be welcoming back our middle and high school students in-person, four days a week. Wednesdays will remain a distance learning day for our secondary students.
Eastern Carver County Schools
Our students are given the power to shape their education, supported by high academic standards and guided by caring and knowledgeable staff. Personalized learning created learners who are motivated and excited about coming to school. Students have opportunities to develop passion projects where they can make connections between school and topics that they care about.
We are thrilled that a significant number of our staff will have the opportunity to get their vaccination on Friday. As the clinic is during school hours, it puts a significant strain on our ability to provide in-person learning. As a result, Friday, February 26 will be an asynchronous learning day for ALL students, including those in the Online Learning Academy.
As many of you have likely heard, earlier today Governor Walz announced more changes to Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan. Much of his update today focused on potential changes for our middle and high school students. You may be wondering how this will impact your students. For the moment, nothing will change. We have been thrilled to have all our elementary students back full time as of February 1. Tomorrow, February 18, we look forward to welcoming back our “B” students at the middle and high schools back in-person in a hybrid model, with our “A” students returning on Monday, February 22.
Families in our district who qualify for free or reduced-price meals are now eligible for additional emergency nutritional benefits offered from the Federal government.

Teachers in Eastern Carver County Schools not only lead instruction but also facilitate learning for each student. They teach by guiding students towards mastery of content and instilling 21st century skills.
Engagement with Learning Tools
With teachers as facilitators, students use a variety of educational tools and resources to maximize learning. Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond high school, wherever their aspirations take them.
We are redefining learning spaces with a variety of furniture, layouts and technology that facilitate collaboration, creativity, comfort, and safety.
Learner Voice & Choice
Students have the freedom to design the way they showcase their learning based on individual styles, experiences, passions, and needs. Respected as capable co-designers, learner agency is cultivated throughout all learning.
