Our Daily Agenda --for our Special Education students in quarantine

Our Daily Agenda at Home

Parent/Teacher Surrogate Administered-document your student's work by a handwritten schedule or email on Fridays. The Homeschool teacher can assess the work but the District teacher will need evidence of the work. If teacher sends a packet because you do not have internet access, hold onto the work until the District directs us how to communicate.

Absolutely follow the guidelines for quarantine
