Students Engage in Personal Learning Safely at Home, with Unified Supports

In our Distance Learning PLUS model, students learn safely at home and engage in personal learning with unified supports. In-person supports will be available to students by appointment. These in-person supports may include technology assistance, tutoring, special education services and mental health support. Learning includes direct teacher instruction and independent student work, with a combination of virtual meetings, interactive class sessions and pre-recorded videos. 

Enhancements to our distance learning model include:

  • 1-to-1 school devices (iPad or Chromebook) provided to all students in grades K-12, allowing for greater access for our youngest learners. 
  • Increasing consistency and clarity with teacher communications was a key piece of feedback from families across grade levels. A focused effort on ensuring timely and consistent communication via our Learning Management Systems (Seesaw and Schoology) across schools/grades will occur.
  • This school year, we are committed to educating students in a way that better aligns with our goals, values and standards of excellence.
