Instructional Continuity Plan 2.0
Executive Summary Excerpt
As we continue to navigate uncharted waters due to COVID-19, the district is taking additional steps to support our students, teachers, families, schools, and community. The Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP) 2.0 expands upon the previous plan with the objective of providing additional guidance and support for an extended period of closure not fully contemplated in the earlier version. In this update, we attempt to clarify the roles of students, teachers, and families relative to distance learning, as well as the different options teachers have for content delivery. We also attempt to clarify expectations relative to the amount of time students will need to devote to schooling each day and throughout the week. We have also updated information on the resources that are available for students, teachers, and families to utilize during this time to support student learning. This updated plan includes high quality, standards-aligned instructional continuity guides that will benefit teachers and administrators in supporting student achievement. The District continues to offer teachers opportunities for professional development during this time. Included in ICP 2.0 is the Distance Learning Support PD Menu that lists multiple professional development offerings available to teachers and covers topics such as navigating their remote classrooms, exploring best practices for distance learning, and improving communication and collaboration with colleagues and students. The selection of webinars or videos – both district-created or collaboratively produced with our partner content providers – will be available and teachers can participate on the dates and times that work best for them. Finally, we have included information about daily attendance procedures and grading procedures. Please click below to read The Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP) 2.0.
