Continuity of learning during student absence and school dismissals
The Department of Education (ED) has released recommendations to assist school districts in maintaining continuity of learning in the event of extended student absence or school dismissals in response to influenza. School districts should assess the resources available to deliver continuity of learning due to the presence of H1N1 this academic year. This document, along with a question and answers page for schools, outlines strategies ranging from sending work home to students to using internet-based distance learning technologies that school districts can tailor to create a continuity of learning plan for students. The guidance also includes a decision table to help administrators evaluate potential instructional delivery options and considerations related to each option.
