Brave Through COVID-19
March 2020, we never could have imagined what the next year would hold. One year after COVID-19 became part of daily life, we have so much to celebrate as an Indian Hill School District community:

During the 2020-2021 school year, 92% of school days included in-person learning with 86% of those days in school five days per week.
Our faculty – 100 percent – participated in professional learning with distance learning experts from around the country to strengthen the delivery of online learning.

Our technology professionals provided amazing support:

• 300 District-owned devices were provided to Brave Virtual Academy students
• 1,350 District-owned devices provided to students during Plan B/C instruction
• 300 technology support tickets closed for BVA families 
• 500 technology support contacts

Our District worked internally to develop a new learning model to serve our students virtually to provide families with this option, and Brave Virtual Academy (BVA) served 534 (24% of our student body).

Twenty-seven teachers were re-assigned to provide instruction to our BVA students; only four teachers were new hires to the District to staff BVA.

We provided 92% of full course offering in grades K-12 to our students.

We thank you, our parents, for your flexibility and support.

We thank you, our students, for your resilience.

We thank you, our teachers and staff, for being a light during the darkness.

We thank you, our nurses, for providing exceptional care during times of crisis.

We thank you, our maintenance professionals, for keeping our facilities safe.

We thank you, our administrators, for pivoting to develop new ways to educate our students.

We thank you, our Board of Education, for your support; you have been dedicated to guiding our District during these unprecedented times, always with student and staff safety at the core of your decisions, always supportive.

We have been Brave through COVID-19; we have continued to keep our vision of Enduring Excellence in Learning, Leadership, Innovation, and Service alive. Our #IHPromise to our community is to continue to rise to the challenge to deliver the excellent educational experience you expect and deserve.
