2019-20 COVID-19 Course Credit & Pupil Progression Guidance-Grades K-12

Online learning resources to support the retention of grade level and subject area learning standards will continue to be uploaded weekly to the district’s Google classrooms at the Home Learning Guidance & Resources page through May 22, 2020.   These resources will be in alignment with information students have already learned in their classrooms this year.  The resources will focus directly on Louisiana State Standards that align to the curriculum used daily in our classrooms. Students will not be expected to submit school work during this time. However, these materials can be used to focus students on the standards that have already been taught to keep learning concepts fresh.
