What is Remote Learning?
Remote learning for instruction involves providing students with State and/or District approved, standards-aligned curriculum in an online/virtual environment. RIMSD will use Google Classroom (preK-12). PreK and K will have the option of using Choice Boards until Google Classroom training is completed with students and parents/guardians. Materials will be provided for both staff and students.
What is Blended Learning?
Under Phase 3 and 4 of the Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan, school districts may begin in-person learning, following guidelines from the IDPH, ISBE and the local Health Department. Rock Island-Milan Public Schools has developed an instruction plan to allow for a combination of remote (online) and in-person learning for our students. This is called a Blended Learning Plan.
All students in the Blended Learning format will participate in district-wide Remote Learning days (Wednesday). On each Wednesday, all students will have at least one live lesson from teachers, that is done remotely, and have the opportunity to ask questions, seek clarification, etc.
