The Alpine Union School District is continuing to support and uplift students in obtaining a top of the line education amidst school closures. On the day of school closures, the school staff was able to implement an emergency plan and provide school meals for pickup the following Monday, as well as collaborate with teachers to create an excellent distance learning program that is seen as a model for other districts.

The Alpine Union School District’s distance learning plan focuses on helping students continue to progress towards their end of the year goals with online teaching to accommodate for safety. The district has utilized Google products in previous years and continues to take advantage of the many tools and benefits that Google Classroom provides in its distance learning program.

Using great tools and technology, the district has created a plan to include multiple types of learning that will keep kids engaged and active throughout the day. The district is helping provide the necessary technology to students, with over 50% of students in the district having checked out Chromebooks. However, Alpine Union is aiming to keep learning interactive and not just on a screen all day. To do this, Alpine Union is utilizing three different methods, they include:

Synchronous Learning

Synchronous learning includes things like virtual classes, live streams, and chats. These interactions are real-time and help keep students engaged with fellow students and their teachers.

Asynchronous Learning

Asynchronous learning includes interactions that occur with others but are not real-time, examples of this may include comments on discussion boards and collaboration on google documents.

Low tech/no tech Learning

Lastly, there are low tech and no tech options for students to learn, this may include things like packets or activities completed away from the computer.

The Alpine Union School District is working to help students increase their digital citizenship, keep lines of communication with students and families open, and create an enjoyable and attainable at-home learning experience for everyone. This includes providing social and emotional support from school counselors and social workers from Monday through Friday.
