What:

  • AMI are ways to support continuous learning during unforeseen circumstances such as COVID-19.
  • Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation, and enrichment through virtual means.
  • Students who have been identified as a household that can not access adequate internet service will be provided hard-copy supplemental materials related to the specific contents that other students are accessing virtually.
  • AMI will be facilitated through a link that students can use at any time to find specific course work activities/assignments.

 

When:

  • Between March 30 and April 3, students will have access to the AMI link.
  • During the week of March 30 and April 3, student activities and assignments are still optional resources to be used at the discretion of the student and parent. These activities/assignments are highly encouraged.
  • AMI expectations for accountability (grading, completion, etc.) may change after April 3, depending on the nature of our students' return.

 

Where:

  • AMI links will be posted after each day in the High School Newsletter, "Take a Look...".
  • AMI links will also be available on the district website under the Student/Parent Tab---Student Links button.

 

Why:

  • The intent would be to continue the education process for our kids during this time of closure.

 

How:

  • Students will need to check the AMI link to view daily assignments.
  • Students/parents will need to contact classroom teachers or office staff if they are confused or need content-level assistance.
  • Submission of activities and/or assignments will be communicated at a later date. Again, all student activities and assignments are still optional resources to be used at this discretion of the student and parent. These activities/assignments are highly encouraged.
  • Student participation and completion of activities will be monitored by classroom teachers to assess participation rates. Again, these activities are optional from March 30 - April 3.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What if I need assistance from my teacher?

  • Under each day, there will be a link that is available for Staff Virtual Office Hours.  During those times listed, a teacher will be available to provide content assistance. If a student wishes to connect with a specific teacher, he/she will have to find the specific hours available and connect then or send an email and await a response.  Teachers are asked to respond/connect immediately only during the listed office hours; however, a teacher may choose to be accessible during unconventional hours.
