FLEX Learning Day

Flexible Learning Days at Byron Public Schools

What is a Flex Learning Day (FLD)?

This day refers to a school day where instead of coming to a school, teachers and students communicate online or set up prior learning expectations, and the students continue their learning from home. On an FLD, teachers will share assignments and hold office hours in which they are available to provide learning support to students. Teachers can opt to do this from off-campus or their classroom.

About Byron Flex Learning Days

Announcing and facilitating Flex Learning Days

  • Families of students will receive an automated phone call notifying them of the impending FLD, along with our typical announcements on inclement weather days.
  • Teachers will communicate assignments for the students in the courses that would have met that day.
  • Teachers will be online and accessible during regular school hours to provide support for student learning.
  • Teachers may also have sent home pre-planned activities to be used on an FLD. This will be common in our early grades but may take place in other grades also.
  • As always, accommodations will be made for students with special needs and for students that do not have access to the internet.

Teachers, administrators, and other licensed professionals will be available by phone, email or via the grade-appropriate digital learning space (Google Classroom, Moodle, Google Hangout, or SeeSaw) from 9:00 am - 11:30 a.m. and then from 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. The teacher’s website and your child’s school staff directory includes all district email addresses.
