OA REMOTE LEARNING PLAN

DISTANCE LEARNING RESOURCES

The District recognizes that the education that normally occurs in a classroom cannot be replicated at home. Therefore, online learning will focus on ensuring students have the ability to practice and hone their skills and participate in educationally beneficial activities during the extended closure.  The goal is to ensure the work students receive while out of school is appropriate and valuable, recognizing it is not a direct substitution for in-school learning experiences.
