Reading Community City School District | August 2020

Learning Intent Form Deadline

Reading students have two learning options this fall. Students can participate in remote learning daily with online support from RCCSD staff or a blended learning model. For the blended model, students/families will be given an option to request a morning or afternoon on-campus schedule with remote learning the remainder of the school day.

Reading Community City School District's learning intent form is due this Sunday night. Parents must select either full remote learning or blended learning and indicate their preference for the AM or PM session.

The deadline for submission of the commitment form linked below is 11:59 pm. on Sunday, August 9, 2020. We will do our best to meet our parent requests for either the AM or PM time slots, but cannot guarantee each request will be met.

Please make sure you fill out a separate intent form for EACH student.
