Note: Phase 2 of the Instructional Continuity Plan begins April 16, 2020.
The Instructional Continuity Plan (Distance Learning Plan) Phase Two is an extension of Phase One. It has been in the works for the past few weeks.
A team of more than 40 teachers, administrators, parents, students, and members of the teachers union, VUE, were involved in the process. They helped create, test and provide input on the entire system from the platforms, to the trainings, to the execution. Phase One was designed to be the pioneer platform of our first ever district-wide distance learning. We learned a lot in those first 13 days of instruction as we moved through Phase One, which helped us build an even better system for our second phase. Thank you for all of your help and feedback!
We are excited to roll out Phase Two. Canvas Phase Two is more user-friendly and efficient for elementary students, families and teachers. For example, the new and improved Canvas platform means no more uploading documents! There’s also a built-in immersive reader so students can hear the text being read to them if needed and can be changed to many different languages. Also new, it allows students and parents to know exactly what students have completed and what work they still need to complete.
Students and families can utilize the resources on this website to provide instruction at home until schools reopen.
