PreK-2nd Grade Distance Learning

Distance Learning Plan

According to our tiered system, we will transition to distance learning in Plan C and Plan D. If we must move to Plan C, most students will be in a distance learning model; if we move to Plan D, all students will be in a distance learning model. Below is the distance learning plan for each building. This plan was created according to the North Dakota Smart Restart K-12 Guiding Principles and Expectations.


Elementary Distance Learning Overview Synchronous (live) learning will be the primary means of learning. ELA (reading, writing, phonics, etc.) and math will be the subjects of most emphasis so that students do not fall behind in essential math and reading skills. All K-6 students will have a 1:1 device to utilize from home; internet service will be provided for homes that do not have it. Teachers will continue to teach to North Dakota State Standards and track student progress towards standard mastery. The focus in blocks 1 and 2 will be reading and math so that students do not fall behind in those crucial foundational areas. Science and social studies content will be integrated through those blocks, particularly through reading passages.
