Independent Learning Plan for the Remainder of the 2019-20 School Year

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

As a result of our extended emergency school closure, students will continue their learning through Independent Learning Days. 

Teachers will continue to provide assignments via electronic platforms like Google Classroom, Zoom, or others they may have used with their students this year. Check with your child’s teacher for details if you aren’t sure how to connect with them.

If digital access is not available at home, new Independent Learning Packets will be available for pick-up at the entrance of each Elementary, K8, and Middle school site beginning at Noon on Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 10. After April 10th, packets may be picked up outside the Student and Family Services Center located at the Early Learning Center at Formey School at 400 East Broad Street in Savannah. In addition, the Independent learning packets will be available on beginning Monday, April 6. Simply click the Independent Learning button on the front page of the site.

Each printed Independent Learning Packet contains a weekly schedule for work completion through the remainder of the school year. Assignment return will be established between the parent and teacher for the purpose of grading.  NOTE: If the student has digital access at home and is receiving assignments from teachers, the Independent Learning Packet work does not need to be completed.

Teachers will continue to be available to all students and parents for virtual "office hours" during which time they will provide instruction, offer guidance on instructional tasks, and be available to answer questions. Teachers will notify parents of the specific times for their virtual office hours. If you are unable to reach your child’s teacher, please contact your child’s principal by email.
