Instruction this fall will begin remotely to distance online learning. There are two basic ways students will learn: synchronously and asynchronously. Synchronous instruction is teaching that involves live interaction with your child’s teacher or other support provider in real time. Asynchronous instruction is teaching and learning that happens not in real time. This could be watching a pre-recorded video, learning through a digital program, or working on an independent activity. Online learning is available through your child’s school.
Family and Student Handbook
The handbook includes sample instructional schedules, information on how to access technology and log into classes online, steps for how to have a successful first week of school, free resources for extended learning, and much more.
Back to School Plan
The Back to School Plan is intended to serve as a blueprint for the measures, systems, and practices necessary to provide the appropriate continuity of both care and instruction to all students, families and staff as we begin the 2020-21 school year. Whether students are in a classroom at school or at home, our commitment to your children is to provide them with the best possible education.
Student Resources for First Week of School
Students and parents, learn about what the first week of online learning for school year 2020-2021 will be like with our First Week Overview.
You can also download opening day checklists and watch orientation videos.
In an online learning environment, students will have both digital learning content and hardcopy, print material. Depending on the grade level, some students may have books that they can write in, and other textbooks will be hard cover that must be returned at the end of the year. For more information on District core materials, please look for "Adopted and Approved Instructional Materials" by visiting the Integrated Library, Textbook, and Support Services website.
The first day of school is August 18, 2020. Students will all have a regular schedule, daily live interaction, and daily attendance taken. In order to participate in school, students must have a computing device, internet connectivity, and learning material provided by their school and teacher. Instruction can occur whole-group, small-group, or one-on-one during office hours. Learning will be a combination of live (synchronous instruction) and independent (asynchronous instruction).
