ISD 318 released its Return to Learn plan to the public on Friday, August 7 at isd318org/ReturnToLearn. The document details not only the plan to return for in-person learning this fall, but also options for hybrid and remote learning should cases in Itasca County rise.
The funds will be used to purchase additional 1:1 student devices and supporting technology. “In planning for the coming school year, we want to ensure that our students will have access to their teachers and support staff via iPads and hotspots if necessary,” said Teaching and Learning Director Sue Akre. “During the past school year’s distance learning period the iPads were our best way to connect with students. Beyond learning, the devices provided access to mental health supports and engagement with teachers and staff.”
