The Riverview School District has prepared a Continuous Learning Plan to address the academic and social-emotional needs of students during the school closure. This plan is grounded in the values expressed in guidance from the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
With the Governor's announcement that schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year, Riverview schools are transitioning to Remote Learning beginning April 20th.
The shift to Remote Learning presents a set of unique challenges to our traditional school structure including, but not limited to, the following:
A need to redesign curriculum that was meant to be delivered in person.
Facilitation and differentiation of instruction in a digital world rather than in a classroom.
Teacher and student familiarity and skill with various technology platforms.
Different technology access points for students and families
Development of grading and assessment standards; and,
The ability to provide timely and formative feedback in a digital world rather than a classroom.
In building Remote Learning schedules, we appreciate the hard work schools have done in considering the needs of students, families, and staff. If you have specific questions about the schedule or assignments, please reach out to your child's teacher or school administrator(s).
Educators are designing weekly plans for the remainder of the year, including learning activities and resources for each week, that will support students in learning essential skills and concepts typically covered during the fourth quarter for their grade level/content area. Our plan structure is informed by guidance released from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) around age-appropriate learning time per day, including remote learning time and time spent to complete assignments.
The time frames, listed below, are intended to provide flexibility for students and to ensure that the amount of learning provided is manageable for students in each age-group:
