• DOE Remote Learning Plan Guidance for Districts/Charters

    Plan due April 3, 2020, Submitted to Secretary Bunting

    Remote learning occurs when the learner and instructor, or source of information, are separated by time and distance and therefore cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting. While information is typically transmitted via technology so that no physical presence in the classroom is required, it can occur through other instructional models such as hybrid or analog learning. Remote learning can occur synchronously or asynchronously.

    Districts/charters must submit a remote learning plan to the DDOE by April 3, 2020. This plan should account for the completion of 1060 hours (grades K-11), 1032 hours (grade 12) and 188 teacher days no later than June 30, 2020.

    Plans must include the following three items:

    1. Start date for teachers and students

      Teacher days may include, but are not limited to, work such as

      • Instructional contact hours with students
      • Daily planning
      • Long-range planning for possible return after 5/15
      • Professional learning
      • Phone calls to students/families
      • Creation of videos, and other learning activities

      Teacher start date may include days worked during initial two week closure (March 16-27, 2020) as long as they included the above activities.

      Student hours should primarily focus on the critical standards needed for the content areas. Student hours may include, but are not limited to,

      • Phone contact/instruction with teacher
      • Online or hardcopy lessons
      • Weekly assignments
      • Projects
      • Video lessons
      • Additional learning experiences

      The recommendation is to address the critical standards for the remaining weeks of school.

    2. End date for teachers and students
    3. Overview of delivery model by grade span

    Additional resources can be found in DDOE’s District and Charter Supports remote learning resources.
