Currently students at DCPS have been operating under the "red status", which means all students are learning virtually from home. Now, some of those restrictions are set to be lifted for some of the students.

Students in preschool through 8th grade will return to school beginning on Monday, September 14th, 2020 on the A-B Schedule. Students in grades 9-12 will remain on Non-Traditional Instruction. Virtual Academy students remain on their VA schedule.

According to an announcement from Superintendent Matt Robbins, "As DCPS transitions in levels of distance and in-person teaching and learning, we will adopt a two-week strategy. This means that Daviess County must experience two consecutive weeks of improved status before we will move down the continuum of strategies (from Red to Orange to Yellow to Green)."

Robbins went on to add, "However, due the need for an immediate, emergency response, DCPS will respond swiftly in moving up the scale from levels of in-person to distance learning (example: Status could change from Green to Orange without a transition period of Yellow)."

Green ​= Five-Day In-Person Learning
Yellow ​= A/B Hybrid Schedule
Orange ​= A/B Hybrid Schedule for grades PreK - 8 with small group restrictions; Distance Learning for grades 9-12 (small groups allowable within KDE guidelines)
Red ​= Distance Learning for all P-12 Students (no In-Person Learning)
