Remote Learning Plan Overview

  • Schools in Wickenburg Unified School District opened for inperson learning on October 19, 2020.  For students who were not ready to return to the classroom, the district offered a remote learning platform. Remote learning is learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom because the student and teacher are separated by distance and/or time.  The student will be provded a device if needed and be assigned to a teacher that will guide their instruction.  These guidelines will also be used should a school or the entire district have the need to move to a remote learning environment.  Our remote learning goal is to focus on the whole child, to include their mental and emotional health, while keeping them physically safe, fed, and engaged in learning.
