Flexible Instruction Day
A Flexible Instruction Day (FID) is a virtual school day where students and staff have an opportunity to explore and engage in meaningful learning experiences that are: (a) aligned to the curriculum, (b) connected to standards, and (c) relevant to the current instructional sequence. These days are intended to continue to afford students meaningful learning experiences while connected with teachers virtually in the event of an emergency school closure, i.e. health related closure such as we are currently experiencing as a result of the spread of the coronavirus. Nothing replaces the genuine human interactions that happen authentically in the classroom between students and teachers. However, in the event that the schools are closed, we are hoping to replicate that connection as much as possible utilizing a distance learning approach.
