Continuous Learning Plan Overview for Students & Families

Teaching and learning during a global pandemic

APS created a Continuous Learning Plan for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year in response to the order by the governor and the New Mexico Public Education Department to close schools. This plan, created in unprecedented times amidst a global pandemic, focuses on essential learning and relationships for all students.

The plan was developed with guidance from the New Mexico Public Education Department, which states: "New Mexico is a state that is grounded in diversity, and this strength should allow us to demonstrate equity, inclusivity, and creativity in supporting the needs of all students."

2020五大联赛赛程Our supports and resources are intended to maintain the curious and creative minds of our students. We are aware that the school closure may impact academic growth for students, and we are already investigating ways to overcome the effects of lost instructional time. The resiliency of children and the professional dedication of teachers is a powerful combination, and we believe that together we can overcome this challenge. Please know that we are all in this together. As recommendations for weathering this crisis evolve, we will continue to evaluate ways APS can support our students, families, and schools.

"Students belong in school. That’s where they learn best. But we also need to keep them safe. We need our staff and their families to stay healthy. And so, teaching and learning will continue; it will just look a lot different over the next few months."

Teacher Office Hours

Teachers will designate times when they are available online. Office hours provide consistency and structure. We know that some households are sharing devices, so we have asked teachers to space their office hours throughout the day, so all students have the opportunity to contact their teacher.

Grading 

K-8

  • Grades will not be recorded for grades K-8. A priority will be placed on providing students and families with relevant and meaningful feedback about student work and progress.

High School

State Testing

Students don't have to take state tests since schools are closed. (This includes the PSAT for sophomores and the SAT for juniors.)    

Special Education 

We will continue to follow Individual Education Programs (IEPs) for our special education students.

  • Schools are taking into consideration alternate methods for providing such services as teleservices, learning packets, or virtual/online lessons.
  • Special education teachers and related service providers will continue to work on IEP and evaluation paperwork within required timelines.
  • IEP meetings may be held via phone or in another video conferencing format, such as Google Meet, as appropriate.
  • LEAs must ensure that, to the greatest extent possible, each student with a disability can be provided the special education and related services identified in the student’s IEP.

Student Belongings Left at School
