What does Remote Learning look like?

Remote Learning is a Scenario that we have prepared for as a district and it is also a choice that families have to opt into. Each day, students will participate in a video conference call with a teacher. SeeSaw will be used for grades Pre-k through 5th grade and Canvas will be used for grades 6th-12th grade. These tools will be key communication platforms for students to access homework and turn in assignments. See more details about our Remote Learning Model at:
