Distance Learning Plan

Overview

Both the K-5 and Secondary Reopening committees sought to create a more robust Distance Learning plan that builds on and improves last year’s experience during the emergency building closure. This plan was adapted based on feedback from students, parents and teachers provided during the 2019-20 school year and over the summer, recognizing that a return to distance learning may be necessary during the 2020-21 school year. These plans will continue to evolve if/when they are implemented.  

Plan Highlights

  • Increased contact time between students and their teachers

  • More direct instruction to students, especially at the elementary level

  • Schedule that closely mirrors a "regular school day" with students engaged in learning from 8:30am - 2:30pm every day

  • Increased feedback from teachers and more accountability for students

  • Breaks are built in to the day to balance the need for instruction with the amount of screen time for students

  • Dedicated time for intervention, specials and academy

  • Start and end times similar across elementary, middle and high schools.
