Communication Plan

● Teachers will communicate with students and parents through their normal platforms (email, Remind, Google Classroom, phone calls, etc )

● Weekly email will be sent by principal to parents with weekly updates and reminders.

● The Middle School will also use social media to connect with students and parents.

● Teachers will do their best to respond to students within one day of the original communication.

Spring 2020 Grading

● There are factors outside of the control of the school system with learning being moved off site; therefore, the aim is that student grades are not lowered as a result of Remote Learning.

● Grades for Spring 2020 semester will be reported on a Pass/Incomplete basis.

● Students who are unable to complete or decide not to complete the instructional remote learning activities in a timely fashion will be issued an incomplete.

○ Students with an incomplete will be given time to make up work when we return to back to regular in-person school.

Mandated State Testing

● All mandated state testing has been cancelled for the 2020 school year. This includes:

○ IAR

○ Illinois Science Assessment

○ US and State Constitution Test

Local Assessments

● The Spring 2020 MAP test will not be conducted when we return to school. This is to allow teachers as much instructional time as possible.
