In last Friday’s weekly ARPS Update newsletter, the Superintendent shared an online survey the district is doing to get feedback on Distance Learning 2.0 and how it’s going for families and students. Your feedback will help ARPS make updates and provide support as needed. To complete the survey:
Note: For parents with multiple ARPS students, you answer the survey once, but can give different answers to individual questions based on different children’s experiences.
Additionally, the Superintendent said: “Some families have expressed concern about the effect of the school closure on students’ academic progress and the impact it will have in the 2020-2021 school year. I want to assure our families that the District is taking these concerns into account in planning for the beginning of the new school year. There are no plans to retain students since they will be supported in catching up on both their academic and social/emotional learning when the new year begins. In the meantime, students are strongly encouraged to participate fully in the Distance Learning 2.0 work being provided by their teachers. At the High School level, students will receive credit for their courses based on their work prior to the school closure and their participation in distance learning.”
