Distance Learning

On June 24, 2020, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-41 Prioritizing Kids and Schools During COVID-19 regarding the reopening of schools for school year 2020-2021. As part of the Executive Order, all public schools may submit a Distance Learning Plan (DLP) to receive the flexibility to offer distance learning options for students without an approved Arizona Online Instruction (AOI) program for the 2020-2021 school year. School districts are required to submit a DLP to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) prior to implementing distance learning. School districts may begin operating their DLP upon submission of the plan to ADE. Charter schools are required to use the template provided by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools (ASBCS) and must submit their DLP as specified in communications from ASBCS and each charter holder’s assigned Education Program Manager.

School Districts may make revisions to improve their DLP at any time, but must submit those changes to the ADE within 10 business days of any substantive revision. School districts should contact the ADE at EmergencyDL@azed.gov to revise their DLP.

A school district that has been approved to operate an AOI but plans to operate distance learning for students enrolled in a brick and mortar school must submit a DLP prior to beginning operations. School districts are required to submit a DLP to be eligible for the Governor’s Enrollment Stability Grant Program.

The safety of all students and staff is one of our top priorities. Here is what you will expect in terms of safety precautions when your child comes back to school:

  • All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask. These will be provided for students and of course, parents can send their child with their own personal masks. Bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times throughout the day with special attention to high touch areas.  
  • We will be educating and ensuring students practice good hygiene including frequent hand washing, the use of sanitizers, understanding social distancing protocols and refraining from touching the face. 
  • Minimal transitions for learning will be in place and students will be with the same group all day. This applies to recess and lunch.
  • Students will have opportunities for physical activity throughout the day but there will be social distancing and no sharing of materials. All materials will be cleaned and disinfected.
  • Students will eat in their classroom and will be following cleaning and disinfecting protocols before and after eating.
