    Secondary A/B Rotation

    Secondary students, grades 6-12, in the "A" rotation started on Tuesday, September 8. Secondary students in the "B" rotation will started on Wednesday, September 9. Should Secondary SChools transition from Distance 2.0+ learning to Hybrid or In-Person, A/B rotation information or changes will be communicated at that time.

    The Shakopee IHD - Hybrid rotation is a continuous A/B rotation. So, barring any days off school, it would be A/B/A/B/A/B/A and so on rather than set days of the week for each rotation. In the Shakopee-IHD Hybrid rotation, a student will be in class 20% more time than in the other models. In addition, our rotation allows for efficient food distribution for students who qualify for free/reduced price lunches.
