Distance-based learning
City Schools is putting into place distance-based learning methods to ensure each of our students has access to a standards-aligned experience.
On Monday, April 6, students will continue to engage in learning based on their needs. Students will be able to access daily reading and math lessons on two educational access channels. They will also have access to those lessons online, in addition to other resources.
Teachers will engage students and families on many different platforms including Google classroom. Every Monday during the closure period, students will be able to pick up work packets at the district’s 18 meal sites.
