Remote Learning

  • The MCPS Teaching & Learning Department has compiled strategies and educational activities that families can use to keep students engaged in learning during the event of a school closure. Our goal is to provide a structure for at-home learning so families have some easy-to-implement activities to keep our students engaged and prevent learning loss during an extended break. 

    Remote Learning means that the learner and instructor are separated and therefore can’t meet in a traditional classroom setting. We recognize that these activities do not replace classroom instruction. No new content will be introduced and no assignments will be graded.  

    Remote learning activities are organized by grade level and contain a combination of low tech and technology-based options across multiple subject areas, including consideration for students' physical and mental wellness. 

    We hope that parents can partner with children to complete these activities. Some will include learning with devices and technology, while others do not; similar to the student experience during a typical school day. Although some of these resources are already regularly used in school, we hope that students have opportunities to try something new or show their learning in a new way. 

    All of these resources and activites are comprised of learning activites recommended by our MCPS Teaching and Learning Instructional Coaches and teaching staff, community partners, colleagues from neighborhing districts (e.g., Great Falls Public Schools and Beaverton School District), open source online curriculum, and partners from national organizations, including the Common Core Standards State Inititaive.
