Following a remote start to the 2020-21 school year, Trevor resumed the option of in-person learning on October 13, 2020. Lower Schoolers (Nursery—Grade 5) who resumed in-person learning attend every day. Middle (Grades 6–8) and Upper (Grades 9–12) Schoolers are on a hybrid, A/B cycle: two weeks in-person, followed by two weeks’ of distance learning at home.
Families in all three divisions also have the option of utilizing Trevor’s distance learning full-time if they choose to do so, and the school institutes intermittent distance learning days based on needs for testing, isolating, and/or quarantine.
Trevor has a uniquely strong and interconnected community, which provides an outstanding foundation for a school year that combines in-person and hybrid learning with a distance learning plan.
When Trevor's distance learning plan, TrevorLINK, is in effect, faculty partner with families at all grade levels to engage students in learning experiences that not only advance the Trevor curriculum, but that also stretch students’ capacities for inquiry and intellectual growth. Teachers continue to play instrumental roles of guiding, supporting, and challenging students to synthesize knowledge toward long-term academic growth, as they embrace this approach to learning.
TrevorLINK (Trevor’s Distance Learning Plan) is designed to support several goals:
- Engaging students: Trevor teachers will continue to engage students in their academic program, during the time they must be away from the school building.
- Creating and following routines: It is important for students to follow daily routines. The fact that we aren’t meeting in person should not be perceived as a break. Learning can and will continue on a daily basis.
- Maintaining relationships: Students will continue to see and hear their teachers and advisors; they will also see their peers and hear their opinions and feedback. The class will feel intact.
- Providing necessary support: The TrevorLINK plan is designed so that counselors, learning specialists, and technology integrators can all provide timely support to students, families, and teachers. This will provide continuity in student learning and optimal well-being for the Trevor community.
