Overview

IASD’s Continuity of Education Plan is focused on enrichment and review in efforts to prevent regression and allow students to grow toward mastery of the PA Core Standards.

  • The delivery will consist of mostly an asynchronous approach. 
    • Teachers may schedule some optional live class sessions (synchronous)

  • The main platforms we will be using for distance learning is online instruction via Google Classrooms and/or Google Sites.

  • Students who do not have Internet access at home will receive learning activity packets of information on a regular basis.  Parents/guardians of such students will be contacted accordingly about such programming.
