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.
