Our Mission

The mission of the Alton School District is to prepare our students with college, career and citizenship skills through a safe and progressive learning environment.

Alton School District Return to Learn Comprehensive Plan

During the 2020-2021 school year, it may be necessary to consider and possibly even use three different plans at various points. The three plans include:

  1. In-person Instruction (Monday through Friday)
  2.  Blended or Hybrid Instruction (students attend in person on alternating days)
  3. Complete Remote Instruction (when a school or district closure is required).

The following link provides a description of each plan. Click here for Details

2020-2021 Alton School Reopening Plan

Click here to view an overview of the 2020-2021 Alton School Reopening Plan.  Please keep in mind this is only an overview and highly subject to change depending on what occurs in our region and state over the next several weeks.  In addition to the current plan, we must also be prepared to immediately transition to an alternate plan (even before school begins).  If the need arises to further reduce/restrict the number of students allowed within our schools or a complete school closure forces remote learning for all students once again, we must have these plans ready to implement. While we know students learn best while at school and in the classroom setting, the health and safety of our students and staff are our first priorities so it is possible we may need to transition to a more restrictive format. Our district planning team continues to work on all three possible scenarios (in-person, blended and complete remote learning).

Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility.  We know these are difficult and uncertain times but we thank you for your ongoing support of our students, staff and schools!

Join Calvary Baptist as they lead the way to ensure that our teachers will not need to reach into their own pockets. All funds raised for this effort will be used to purchase school supplies for our teachers’ distribution in their classrooms. We will purchase these supplies in case quantity and deliver them to our classroom teachers when school begins. All teachers will then distribute the school supplies to any child in their classroom that has need.

The Alton School District Remote Learning Plan is implemented during emergency situations when the closure of schools is either necessary or mandated by state/federal agencies. The purpose of this plan is to provide students with resources to support continuous learning outside of the school. This plan respects the diverse and varying needs of all students. The content for remote learning is aligned to state standards, relevant and appropriate for each student. Consistent and ongoing communication with a student's teacher, through multiple methods, is also a critical focus of the plan.
