SUBJ:  Learning Model Preference Deadline Extended

EPS Families:

We have received many requests for more time to consider the learning model decision, and for additional information about the Edina Virtual Academy (EVA). We heard you and have made the following plans:

  • Administrators will provide the School Board with an update on the EVA model at Monday’s School Board meeting (Aug. 10 at 7 p.m., streamed on the district’s YouTube Channel.)
  • The deadline for selecting a preferred learning model for your student(s) has been extended to Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 10 p.m.

Learning Model Information

  • Visit the Family Dashboard and find links to information about the Learning Models and FAQs, as well as much more information about the coming school year.
  • At the Edina School Board Work Session on Aug. 6 district administrators, principals and program coordinators presented updates about the learning models and district operations. You can view the two-part recording of the meeting on the district’s YouTube Channel.

Indicate Your Preference

To make your learning model selection, log in to your parent portal: click on the Campus icon, click the More button at the bottom of the left side menu, then My Info Update on the next screen. It will take you to the 2020-21 School Year Planning page where you can indicate your preferences for learning model, transportation and nutrition services. (Check this tutorial for more information about navigating the portal.)

Note that the hybrid model is the default. You must select EVA if you prefer that choice, or your student will be automatically enrolled in the hybrid model. And be sure to update your contact information to ensure you receive all district and school messages!

Change Your Mind?

If you already completed the learning model preference form and would like to change your students’ 2020-21 learning preference, you simply need to restart the My Info Update process outlined above. You have until Aug. 11 at 10 p.m. to make these changes.

Have a great weekend!
