How we're ensuring learning in a remote environment...
The K-5 Remote Learning Evening Program
Will K-5 Remote Learning Evening Program continue when On-Campus instructions begins?
Yes. Students who wish to return to on-campus instruction will have the opportunity to do so, but the K-5 Remote Learning Evening Program will continue for any student interested in remaining in the program.
What is the K-5 evening remote learning option?
A remote learning evening option is offered as an additional option to accommodate the scheduling needs of our families. Students will be dual-enrolled in their assigned home schools and in a remote evening option but will participate in the evening option. However, your child may not be taught by a teacher from your home school during the evening remote learning session. Live class sessions for the remote learning evening option will occur Monday-Friday from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm.
When the remote learning period ends, students may transition back to their home schools for face-to-face instruction if they choose. Parents who select this option must agree to their child participating in the evening option throughout the remote learning period.
What will the evening remote learning program include?
- Monitoring and supporting student attendance, participation, and engagement with remote learning teachers, including attending daily instruction and assignment(s) submission
- Ensuring students are complying with district policies and regulations, including the Student Handbook, Code of Conduct, and any applicable attendance and grading policies and regulations
- Notifying schools of health or medical conditions affecting student attendance
- Maintaining and engaging in communication with teachers providing virtual instruction
- Communicating issues with a district-provided student learning device to school officials
- Assuring student learning takes place in compliance with the district’s Academic Honesty provision

How is this option different from the day option?
The evening option is a district approach where students and teachers will be from a variety of schools. Due to this unique approach, a variation of scheduling models could occur such as multi-age classes. Additionally, larger class sizes might also occur. While core instruction will occur at the designated times with push-in or collaborative support services where possible, specialized services could occur at a different point in the day. This cannot be determined until after the registration process is complete and the amount of interested students is determined.
Will a teacher from my home school be the teacher for the evening option?
No, the teacher may not be from your home school. The students and teachers for this option will be from a variety of schools across the district.
What resources will be used?
The same instructional resources will be used for the evening option. Parents should pick up the school resources from their home schools at the time the home school has designated. That designated time during the week of August 3rd or the week of August 10th. Please check with the home school to determine the time in which resources should be picked up. When the remote learning period ends, those resources should be returned back to the home school.
