The rise of COVID-19 cases in Fulton County has resulted in the decision by the Fulton County School District to start the 20-21 school year in a Remote Learning setting. The leadership at Milton High School knows that online school will not take the place of face-to-face instruction with a caring, knowledgeable, and passionate teacher, but we have developed this plan to provide the most rigorous, meaningful, and purposeful instruction to all our students.
One of the most important points for our community to understand is that the instruction for the start of the school year will not be the same as what our students experienced in the spring of 2020. Remember that, as a school, the Coronavirus pandemic required that we quickly pivot to a TeleSchool setting. Given the difficult circumstance, they did a terrific job and I am very appreciative of their phenomenal efforts.
Some differences between the spring of 2020 and Universal Remote Learning include:
- Our students will participate in synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
- Instructional days will operate on a bell schedule, similar to a normal school day at Milton High School. The bell schedule is included in this document.
- Attendance will be taken during all classes.
- Teachers will be at school and their support staff will also be in place.
- Grades will count.
It is important to note that the circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus and its impact on our community are shifting constantly. This means that the information contained in this document is likely to change. As it does, we will communicate new information by posting updates on our school website ( www.miltonhighschool.com ) and on our official social media channels.
