Remote learning is learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom because the student and teacher are separated by distance and/or time. Remote learning can be real-time or timed with flexibility, and it may or may not involve technology. 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. We strive to attend to the diversity of each teacher and student to ensure all have access to equitable educational opportunities; delivered via paper, electronically or both. Our teachers select content that aligns to essential state standards, and develop lessons to ensure student engagement and understanding of subject matter.
