Thank you for your patience as we work through this new situation. As we know, teachers are undergoing a dramatic shift to accommodate the Governor’s executive order that Colorado schools suspend in-person learning through April 30th—while still providing meaningful learning at a distance.
On March 30, District 49 re-opened for learning under the new conditions of operations required by the coronavirus health emergency. For the time being, D49 will pursue excellence as E49, which acknowledges our move as a district to an E-learning and E-working model! Thank you for walking with us as we navigate our new landscape and season of learning created by this epidemic. We are already seeing significant impacts as we transition into distance learning or e-learning.
Our primary concern is protecting learning time while respecting the needs of families and students during this challenging time.
District 49 has set up some expectations for our teachers that will help you navigate E-Learning.
Remote teaching and learning will take many forms. But you can expect that there will be communication, progress monitoring, and/or feedback between teachers and students. While E-Learning is not the same as the regular classroom environment, it can provide some continuity when school is interrupted. It will also serve to further prepare our students for today's digital world.
Teachers (as well as administrators and other certified staff members) will be available by email or other digital learning spaces such as Google Classroom, Schoology, etc.
While not online continuously, teachers will monitor email and other communication with students and parents regularly throughout the school day.
Schools will outline their workflow and tools for families on their web pages on D49.org
Links to individual school e-learning pages will be updated as soon as possible. These will be located on somewhere this page.
