Alternative Methods of Instruction

Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI)

Beginning in the school year 2020-21, a local education agency (LEA) will not be required to make up school hours that are lost or cancelled due to exceptional or emergency circumstances (up to 36 hours) if the LEA implements an Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) Plan.  Exceptional or emergency situations may also be weather related.  

On days when the district enacts AMI, families will be notified through the regular communication channels (phone call, text, email, social media) utilized by the District and their child’s school. Electronic and/or web-based assignments and printed materials will be utilized for AMI and students will have access to District-provided devices and hotspots if necessary.  

During the school closing, students will be assigned learning activities to complete during the closure. Students will be required to submit completed learning activities upon their return to school. Teachers will be accessible for questions, clarification and feedback through their district e-mail. Student attendance for AMI days will be based upon work submitted when school is back in session.
