Highlandville Elementary School


ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF INSTRUCTION (AMI):

In the event of circumstances requiring the closure of school, the district may implement its Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) plan to meet instructional requirements.

 The goal of the AMI plan is to embed learning activities focused on reinforcement of critical learning standards, enrichment activities, or support for further skill development.  Consistent practice and exposure to skills without interruption is the most effective way to ensure student understanding and that mastery of content knowledge is achieved. 

 All teachers will create grade/class appropriate lessons for students to work on at home. AMI materials will also meet the needs of students with IEP's.  Materials will be shared with students electronically or through paper packets.  Packets will be distributed per each building’s plan.  We will not hand out packets the day of a closure..  Students in grades 5-12 will be issued a Chromebook.  Wifi is available in the parking lots of HES and SHS; however, if a closure is weather related parking lots may not be cleared and safely accessible.  Teachers will communicate due dates for all work to be completed using AMI.  Completion of work is required for students to be counted as in attendance on an AMI day.  Work that is incomplete will result in an absence.    

All information related to AMI and closures will be communicated with district patrons using our Lumen notification system and social media for Spokane R-VII.
