Virtual Learning


The Dayton Public School District has been reevaluating the Safe School Restart Plan due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in Montgomery County. After careful analysis of the health data, and after taking into consideration the health and safety of all students and staff, a new restart plan has been developed. 


All students (PreK-12) in the Dayton Public Schools will now learn virtually for at least the first 9 weeks of the 2020-2021 school year. 


Parents should be prepared for virtual learning to potentially extend beyond the first 9 weeks of school, depending on the COVID-19 situation at that time. Please read the following information carefully, as many details of the 2020-2021 school year have changed.

Virtual Learning


  • K-12th grade students will learn virtually from a live DPS teacher.

  • Classes will be Monday-Friday.

  • Students will receive “ready packs” with school supplies. Students who need a Chromebook will receive one. One WiFi hotspot per family will be distributed to those families that need access to the internet. 

  • Students will watch pre-recorded lessons in the morning.

  • Small groups of students will meet virtually with a DPS teacher in the afternoon for additional instruction, and for any assistance with lessons or assignments. 

  • Students will use MindPlay, ALEKS, or Successmaker (new math software) daily, independent of the teachers’ lessons. 


After the 9 Weeks of Virtual Learning Concludes


  • The situation will be reevaluated. Students may continue with virtual learning, or return to face to face instruction with the remote learning option available for those who need it. This depends on the COVID-19 situation in Montgomery County. 


Student Meals


  • Breakfast and lunch will be available at designated spots daily, Monday-Friday, during virtual learning.

  • Locations and pickup times will be announced closer to the start of school.

  • You will be expected to provide the students’ name(s) to receive food.


Attendance and Grading 


  • There is no emergency order requiring schools to move online. School is open as usual, just in a virtual format. 

  • Students are expected to participate in virtual learning just as they would in a regular classroom. 

  • Attendance will be taken daily in virtual classes and all truancy practices will be followed. 

  • Grades will be based on the district’s grading policies.
