NTI/2DL: Non-Traditional Instruction/Differentiated Distance Learning


Superintendent Manny Caulk often states, "Victory is in the classroom." This is still a sentiment that we at Rise STEM Academy for Girls know to be true. While the way we serve our scholars may differ from the typical in-person classrooms, we are still here to meet the needs of our Phoenix Families. Here's what your family can expect from NTI/2DL: Differentiated Distance Learning:


  • Schools will use a common platform (Learning Management System) to deliver instruction: Google Classroom.

  • Schools will create a master “NTI/2DL” schedule that will be implemented consistently: Our Schedule

  • Schools will implement clear communication protocols from school to home: This Website, our district website (fcps.net/rise, social media (@STEMgirlsRISE) and monthly newsletters.

Learning Experiences:

  • Teachers will focus on new learning and growth for every scholar.

  • Teachers will diagnose unfinished learning to identify gaps and determine individual needs for acceleration.

  • Scholars will have access to grade-appropriate learning from digital curriculum programs and district adopted curricula.

  • Teachers will provide strong instruction by implementing a distance learning framework that includes synchronous direct instruction and asynchronous guided learning to differentiate learning and facilitate deep engagement.

  • Teachers will administer ongoing formative assessments with timely feedback.


  • Teachers will have high academic expectations for all scholars.

  • Scholar learning will be assessed on an ongoing basis.

  • Phoenix Families will receive regular documentation and reports on scholar participation, scholar mastery, and grades.
