Flexible Learning Days
Utilize blended learning strategies and tools to minimize the disruption to academic progress that is caused by weather related emergency school closures.
On days when school is cancelled due to inclement weather, students and teachers will utilize developmentally appropriate resources to communicate and engage in flexible learning experiences that are related to current classroom curriculum goals and skills.
A 33 member task force met three times in the fall of 2015 to develop a comprehensive plan for implementing flexible learning days when school is closed due to weather related situations. The task force was made up of high school students, parents, staff, and administration representing programming from Early Childhood through grade 12.
