Elementary Instruction

  • Continuous Learning for Grades K-6

    Kent School District’s Continuous Learning Plan ensures elementary students will continue to learn remotely while our buildings are closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.

    Teachers Will

    • Offer virtual instruction and/or posted lessons on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
    • Take student attendance once a week based on student contact.
    • Grade student work according to the KSD Grading Guidelines During COVID Closure.
    • Be available during set office hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Please check with your teacher for their office hours.
    • Use Wednesdays and remaining work hours for planning, collaboration, and professional learning.

    Students Must

    • Make contact every week. Learn more about student attendance.
    • Complete lessons posted by their teachers at their own pace throughout the week.

    Daily Student Commitment

    We are following recommendations from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to set daily maximums for instructional time.

    • Preschool: 30 minutes
    • Grades K-1: 45 minutes
    • Grades 2-3: 60 minutes
    • Grades 4-6: 90 minutes

    Teachers will offer virtual instruction or posted lessons on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday based on the recommended weekly schedule.
