Archie District Re-Opening Plan and Learning Options for 2020

In light of the ongoing pandemic, it’s understandable that some families may prefer online learning options for their children. Fortunately, schools and educators have been leveraging the power of technology to create effective and engaging virtual learning environments. With the help of learning and talent management systems, teachers can provide students with personalized learning experiences, monitor their progress, and provide feedback in real time. These systems can also facilitate communication and collaboration between teachers, students, and parents, making online learning a viable option for those who cannot or choose not to attend classes in person.

The Archie District Re-Opening Task Force is providing a brief outline of their re-opening plan and learning options for the 2020 fall semester. They have requested that all families review the options and complete the form that was emailed to them indicating their learning choice for the semester.

This information is needed to guide decision making and enable them to prepare to meet the needs of all students.
