Campus Selection

The Amherst School District is giving families the option to change their campus selection at the end of the first trimester (Steele and AJH) and first semester (Powers and Nord). The Restart Plan states that parents must communicate their decision before the beginning of the second trimester or semester.

Steele and AJH Information (6-12)

Parents and students should be familiar with the Amherst onCampus and eCampus programs. If you are considering a change for your 6-12 student but still need more information to make a decision, please contact your child's building principal, assistant principal, or school counselor. Campus selection conversations between school, parent, and student should take place now until the selection window opens on Monday, October 12th. 

Parents will make their 2nd Trimester Campus Selection for each 6-12 student between Monday, October 12th and Sunday, October 25th. Parents will fill out a google form for each student to make their campus selection (below). If we do not receive a selection for any student, the student will remain in their current campus program. All campus selections are final and no changes will be made after midnight on October 25th. 

Please review the 6-12 Campus Selection Consideration document for more information to help you make the best decision for your child.

Powers and Nord Information (K-5)

Although the K-5 second semester does not begin until January 5, 2021, the district has been receiving phone calls from eCampus parents asking if their child can return to the onCampus program sooner. While our restart plan states that a transition will not occur until the semester break, the district is open to the possibility of an earlier transition if it's feasible, manageable, and beneficial for students, parents, and teachers.

In order to consider the possibility of an earlier transition, we need accurate information regarding all K-5 students at Powers and Nord. Since we are beginning the trimester campus selection process at AJH and Steele, we thought it would be an excellent time to gather feedback to see what families are currently considering for their K-5 student(s).

Parents can share their campus selection feedback for each K - 5 student between Monday, October 12th and Sunday, October 25th. Parents will fill out a google form for each student to help us plan the K-5 process and consider the possibility of making an earlier transition (below).

Please review the K-5 Campus Selection Consideration document for more information to help you make the best decision for your child.
