Remote Learning Plan
The purpose of this document is to provide information to the Keeneyville District 20 community for implementing "remote learning" or "remote instruction" during the statewide school closure. The goal is to develope a remote learning plan that is inclusive of all students regardless of age, location, background, and available resources.
- To support all students, the whole child – social/emotionally, nutritionally and educationally.
- To reach every child within Keeneyville District 20.
- Provide opportunities for students to continue learning that focuses on Illinois Learning Standards.
- To provide routines and structures for both students and staff to encourage a predictable school day.
- To provide access to quality educational material both through digital and non-digital access to content.
All of the days during the initial mandated statewide closure March 17 through March 30, 2020 will count as Act of God Days for all Districts. Keeneyville’s spring break, March 30 to April 4. Beginning on April 6, we will utilize two of the five Remote Learning Planning Days with the goal to begin “Remote Learning” (also referred to as “Remote Instruction”) on April 8 with all students.
Teachers will post assignments by 8:30 am each day. Teachers will be available to students and parents via email & Google Classroom/Seesaw from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm each school day. During these times, students and/or parents can ask questions regarding assignments. Teachers will determine the best way to meet the needs of every student whether that is digitally or non-digitally.
Until additional guidance is provided by ISBE, all Remote Learning Days count as actual student attendance days. All students will be considered present for attendance purposes. Teachers should determine the best way to communicate with students and encourage continued instruction during these Remote Learning days.
If a student is sick, please call your child in to the office as you normally would do if school was in session. Teachers will work with parents and students to make sure they can make up any work.
Remote Learning should support social-emotional well-being as well as academic and linguistic development of the student. During the course of daily interaction with students, teachers will use their best efforts to determine if students have all the tools they need to be successful. Is their Chromebook working? Do they need non-digital resources? Do they have level reading opportunities? Do they have food? Parental support? Etc.
Grading should be done on the principle of “no educational harm to any child” or a Pass or Incomplete. Any student who receives an incomplete has the opportunity to make up content. Grades may only increase a students’ academic standing.

Students who are in need of supports can reach out to the Assistant Principals at each building, They are as follows:
The school district will continue to support students with diverse learning needs. The special education along with the general education teachers will collaborate to meet the needs of students with disabilities. In addition, related service members will support students on their caseload. A school based member of your child’s IEP team will collaborate with you and check-in with your child to ensure that remote learning content is understood. Lastly, the school district will utilize paraprofessionals when possible to assist teachers with a variety of responsibilities.
The school district will continue to support English Language Learners during remote learning. The EL teachers will collaborate with the general education teachers to meet the needs of EL learners. In addition, if needed, there will be one day a week of interpretation services available for teachers to communicate with parents.
The District is in the process of developing a transition plan. This plan will include allowing students the following:
- Time to acclimate to the school setting and routines including social emotional time to discuss how they are feeling with the changes over the past weeks
- Analysis of students’ remote learning work and areas that may need to be supported
- Development of plans for classes to resume and to support students in August of 2020

We will continue to update staff, students and parents as these changes happen. We appreciate all of your support!
