Remote Instruction (Students at Home for Health Reasons)
The district will not be offering a separate remote program for students. All instruction will be in-person, unless otherwise indicated on an IEP or 504 plan, or because of quarantine related to COVID-19. Students receiving virtual instruction will receive live, virtual instruction from certified teachers on a daily basis. These teachers will work with the students’ teachers of record to provide a comparable virtual instruction experience.
Virtual assignments will be meaningful, and aligned with New York State Standards. Packets will be printed and made available to students via a drive by and pick up schedule, if necessary. Assessments will take place regularly and with the teacher whenever possible.
