What is Family Choice Remote Learning (FCRL)?
Family Choice Remote Learning will be provided by USD 345 and involve a commitment of one semester intervals. Parents will have the option to return to on-site learning at the beginning of the next semester or register again for another semester of remote learning. Students will be doing all of their learning from home and not entering the school building at all.
  1. Students maintain enrollment status at their brick and mortar school.
  2. Families will sign an agreement in order to participate.
  3. Remote learning commitments will occur for at least a semester. Exceptions could be allowable based on individual circumstances.
  4. Students engage in school online during regular school hours and follow a standard school schedule.
  5. Learning will occur asynchronously (not live) with daily synchronous (live) contact.
  6. Teachers meet with students daily utilizing web conferencing technology.
  7. IEP teams will need to reconvene for students with special education needs to determine services.
  8. Activities and sports participation will follow KSHSAA, USD 345 Board of Education policies and attendance area school policies.
