Magnet Cove School District’s AMI Plan
We are excited to share with you that the Magnet Cove School District has been granted approval to offer “Alternate Methods of Instruction” (AMI) days during the 2017-2018 school year. This plan will allow the opportunity for all Magnet Cove students to be engaged in meaningful learning on inclement weather days when conditions prevent school from being in session. This will enable us to not have to make up the day at the end of the year
What are alternate methods of instruction? Alternate methods of instruction simply allows for the continuation of learning when students miss days of regular instruction. Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation, and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper lessons. The Arkansas Department of Education has granted Magnet Cove three (3) AMI days this school year, on which students will be expected to continue learning at home.
How will AMI days work? Middle school and high school students with Internet access will be able to complete work electronically from home using technology. Middle school and high school will send packets and make all appropriate accommodations for students who do not have Internet access at home. Elementary students will complete packets of work designed by their teacher to extend learning at home. Each school’s AMI plan will be tailored to their particular students. In the coming days, you will receive information from your child’s school with more specific, detailed information. Here, also in our 2017-2018 AMI Plan application with more information on how this will be implemted.
We recognize and anticipate that we will learn lessons along the way but we will make necessary adjustments to improve our AMI plan to best meet the needs of our students. We welcome your feedback and invite you to share information with us about how it is working for your family. If you have any questions, please email or visit with your child’s principal. Thank you for joining us on this journey as we strive to provide your child with learning opportunities.
