Distance Learning Plan

Underwood School District’s Distance Learning Plan

It is our school district’s goal to guide parents through this most challenging time. Together we will ensure that your child(ren) are provided with opportunities and support to continue their educational journey. 

Guiding Principles:

  • You Matter:  We want to take the time each day to continue building relationships with your children.

  • Supportive Stance:  We will be relentless in our efforts to engage all of our students in their learning.

  • Less is More:  We will avoid the temptation of too much too soon.

  • Flexibility:  We know this is needed by ALL stakeholders.

  • Monitor & Adjust:  We will continually review our practice and make improvements.
