Examples include:

    • Discussion groups
    • Mini-lessons
    • Small groups (instruction/connections)
    • Whole groups (instruction)

    A consistent schedule will provide predictable structures for students and also allow for the delivery of Special Education and English Learner services more efficiently. Daily Schedules will align with the Shakopee Online program to accommodate shared staff between both the Distance and Shakopee Online programs. Please note that Distance learning will require attendance and interaction 5 days a week. 


    A Spanish translation of the middle school student schedule can be found here. A Spanish translated versino of the high school student schedule can be found here.

  • Special education, English learners and 504 students will continue to receive services during distance learning.  Additional synchronous time may be offered to students who are English Learners, Special Education or Early Learners who may need more support to be successful in a Distance learning environment.  

    Some students will require more extensive support. Building teams will assist teachers in creating a plan to meet students’ needs.

    Examples (not-limited to): Homework help time (online meetings) scheduled daily; staff connected to specific students to support learning; teachers scheduling 1-1 google meets for students; and support staff that have a relationship with the student provides online support to the student daily (online meetings).
