Daily Update

3/26/20


First Phase of Online Learning and Support for Essential Services Begins Monday 

Our teachers and staff have created learning resources to ensure at-home learning continues during our school closure. Beginning on Monday, March 30, 2020, after schools have had a chance to meet virtually with staff, the Boise School District will launch phase one of our Learning & Essential Services website. Information will also be available for families on how to pick up resources if they do not have internet access.


The website will include grade-level materials designed to help students maintain and develop their skills in core subjects. In mid-April, we will provide additional, more content-specific learning services for students online by offering specific content-based and grade level online curriculum for each student, with alternative paper materials for students who do not have online access.


Parents will receive information on how to access the new website around noon on Monday, March 30, 2020.


To ensure every student’s learning needs are addressed, the District will also provide paper materials at our Grab-and-Go Meal sites and bus route deliveries.


Please visit our COVID-19 webpage or follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.
