USD 232 Vision - Continuous Learning

  • Even in these extraordinary circumstances, we commit to “Maximize each student’s potential, through inspiration and discovery.” Students will still be connected to their teachers and will engage in meaningful learning experiences that focus on essential learning standards.  

  • USD 232 Continuous Learning Plan

    2019-2020, Fourth Quarter

    All students in USD 232 will transition to remote learning beginning April 1, 2020.

    The distance-teaching and learning environment will never replicate the amazing things that happen in our classrooms, but there are certainly opportunities for innovation. Teachers have been busy reviewing the curriculum that may be covered during this time, and will focus on the most important learning standards and skills for the remainder of the semester.  

    Throughout this process, please remember to extend grace and patience for your child(ren), teachers and yourselves. These are very challenging times and we want to make sure we remember everyone is feeling varying amounts of stress. Meeting social and emotional needs is a necessity. 

    Expectation for students vary depending on their grade level.  Specific expectations for elementary students, recommended by the Kansas Department of Education Continuous Learning Task Force, are included in this website (links below). We realize the difficulty that we face as a school district, but have faith in the strength and expertise of our teachers.
