Distance Learning Plan Template for School Districts
On June 24, 2020, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-41 Prioritizing Kids and Schools During COVID-19 regarding the reopening of
schools for school year 2020-2021. As part of the Executive Order, all public schools may submit a Distance Learning Plan (DLP) to receive the
flexibility to offer distance learning options for students without an approved Arizona Online Instruction (AOI) program for the 2020-2021 school
year. School districts are required to submit a DLP to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) prior to implementing distance learning. School
districts may begin operating their DLP upon submission of the plan to ADE. Charter schools are required to use the template provided by the
Arizona State Board for Charter Schools (ASBCS) and must submit their DLP as specified in communications from ASBCS and each charter
holder’s assigned Education Program Manager.

School Districts may make revisions to improve their DLP at any time, but must submit those changes to the ADE within 10 business days of any
substantive revision. School districts should contact the ADE at EmergencyDL@azed.gov to revise their DLP.

A school district that has been approved to operate an AOI but plans to operate distance learning for students enrolled in a brick and mortar
school must submit a DLP prior to beginning operations. School districts are required to submit a DLP to be eligible for the Governor’s
Enrollment Stability Grant Program.

Instructions
A school district that wishes to provide distance learning under Executive Order 2020-41 must create a DLP using this template, provided by the
ADE. School districts not utilizing the appropriate template will be required to revise and resubmit their plans. Plans not submitted in the
template must wait to begin DL instruction until the plan is submitted in the approved template. The template is a Word document that must be
completed in its entirety and submitted via email to EmergencyDL@azed.gov, as specified in communications from ADE.

In the sections found on pages 3-5, a school district will populate background information regarding school district and school information,
including basic information about each school district’s overall plan and intended number of instructional days.

Most areas of the DLP will be completed by breaking processes into discreet, sequential action steps that answer the questions of what, who,
when, and how. The action steps require the school district to name the action, indicate who is responsible for the action, provide the frequency
and/or timing of the action, and identify what evidence will exist to show that the step has been/is being completed. Areas should include
multiple action steps in order to demonstrate that the school district has a “detailed plan” to “provide substantive distance learning”, as
required by the Executive Order. An example of a set of action steps for an area is below:

                                                                                                                                                1
Distance Learning Plan Template 2020-2021

The example above is not intended to demonstrate that these are specific action steps a school district should use, nor that this is the best or
most appropriate number of action steps. Rather, it is provided as guidance to show the manner in which the template is to be completed.

Other areas of the template will require the school district to check boxes to indicate specific tasks, strategies, or resources to be used for
different stakeholders included in the distance learning process.

                                                                                                                                                   2

School District Information
*School districts are only required to submit one DLP. If individual schools within a district are providing unique instructional programs, we encourage school
districts to incorporate that information into one DLP, as opposed to completing additional templates. Please contact EmergencyDL@azed.gov with any
questions.

Distance Learning Background Information
    a. Number of Instructional Days (3.b)

Each school district shall operate for the required 180 days of instruction pursuant to Executive Order 2020-41 (3.b). An exception to this
requirement may be granted by the ADE, if the school intended to switch to a different schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. If ADE previously
approved the school to operate on a calendar that was not 180 days, but met the number of hours equal to 180 days of instruction, this provision
is still met, and no action is required.

Please note, pursuant to Executive Order 2020-44 the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) shall conduct an analysis of the need to waive the
number of school days that schools are required to provide schooling and the impact of such a waiver by August 31, 2020.

 How many instructional days will the school district operate for School Year 2020-2021?                                   180 (except CG who
                                                                                                                           will have 144 days)

 If you chose option 4 or 5 above, please provide a brief narrative explaining the details of the plan you will use:

 Students will begin their learning virtually from the beginning of the school year (August 17) through quarter one (Mid-October). We will continue to reassess if this date
 needs to be extended given the guidance from the Governor’s Office, ADE, CDC, and our Mitigation Plan using public health benchmarks. Once we resume in-person teaching
 and learning we will offer students the opportunity to participate in-person, hybrid, or continue in the virtual environment.

 Is the school district requiring students to do distance learning?                                                                                             Yes
 If students are required to do distance learning, is the school district providing a physical location for students to go                                      Yes
 during the same hours of the day AND the same days throughout the week as it did in the FY2020 school year prior to
 the school closure?

*In the case of a statewide closure or delay of in-person instruction, the requirement to provide a physical location available for students is waived under the
Executive Order 2020-41 until the State permits in-person instruction. If due to a COVID-19 outbreak and pursuant to A.R.S. § 36-787, the Arizona Department of
Health Services directs a school to close temporarily in order to appropriately sanitize the facility, the requirement to provide a physical location available for
students is waived.

Attendance Tracking (1.a.i, 1.i)
    •    Describe how the school district will track attendance for students attending remotely, whether full time or intermittently.
         The description must include the specific measures that will be used to determine whether a student participating in DL will be reported
         as present or absent on days when instruction does not take place in person. Attendance tracking may include methods such as:
                     ▪ Communication with their teachers via telephone, ZOOM, MS Teams, or other digital meeting software.
                     ▪ Student participation in a virtual meeting or classroom session (ZOOM, MS TEAMS, Google Meets, etc.)
                     ▪ Daily assignments completed and submitted by the student.
                     ▪ A parent attestation or documentation of time spent on educational activities.

                                                                                                                                                                               5
Distance Learning Plan Template 2020-2021

The school district is advised that the ADE will continue to issue guidance on the topic of attendance, and should closely monitor updated
information related to these expectations. Current guidance can be found here: https://www.azed.gov/finance/school-finance-guidance-for-

 Optional: Describe how the school will provide substantive distance learning (use if the school wishes to provide information in addition to the tables above)
 We are making sure we build a lot of structure, but also allow for flexibility. We have created extensive teacher training to support teachers to understand these systems and
 how to use them. We have built a Canvas course for all of our teachers that allows for asynchronous work in the summer, but also gives them easy access to all training and
 guidance documents in one place at any time. In addition, to ensure distance learning is meaningful and interactive, we have chosen to focus on training and technical
 support for these web applications: Buncee, Benchmark Universe (aligned to our K-6 ELA Curriculum), Lightspeed Orchestrator, Google Read and Write, Flipgrid, SeeSaw,
 EdPuzzle, Nearpod, Classcraft, Screencastify, Padlet, Pear Deck, NewsELA, Khan Academy and Kahoot. In addition, our teachers have access to the ASU Library Resources and
 ASUforYou resources.

 Optional: Describe how the school district will administer benchmark assessments (use if the school district wishes to provide information in addition to
 the table above).
 ASU Prep Benchmark Policy:
 Narrative:
 Our schools will administer the network-wide diagnostic benchmark assessments this August and September. The network will provide written instructions for teachers to post
 in their Canvas shell to navigate students to the benchmarks in Exact Path (and separately directions for DIBELS, Achieve3000, ALEKS and Dreambox). In order to increase test
 security, teachers may utilize Lightspeed Orchestrator or may require students to open Zoom and take the benchmark with their camera on.

 The purpose of this assessment is to collect data that will give us an overarching view of what students learned and retained from the previous year, in addition to identifying
 any gaps in knowledge. The story of the data will be much deeper than mastery levels on standards. We will be able to quickly identify our highest need students and dive into
 the circumstances surrounding why the student has not demonstrated success. It is our duty as a school community to continue to strive to find solutions to make this form of
 learning accessible to every single student in our network.

 Purpose & Intentions
     ● Collect data to use in planning high quality, personalized instruction for students
     ● Identify needs of struggling students to better prepare for intervention needs:
               ○ Challenges with content
               ○ Challenges with learning remotely
     ● We must do a deep dive into the data analysis of this benchmark and develop intentional action steps to improve the outcomes for all students.

 Timeline:
     ● August 17 - September 4th: Benchmark Window
     ● September 8-11: Make up Window

                                                                                                                                                                                24

      ● Student will automatically be generated a user account when they click on the Exact Path link)
      ● Academic Integrity Concerns
                ○ Students sign in to take the benchmark at a designated time
                ○ Utilize Lightspeed Orchestrator
 Students turn video on Zoom to take assessment

Additional Information (Optional)
 The school district may use this space to add any additional information it believes is key to the plan it has laid out in this document, or to highlight its
 efforts to provide a quality Distance Learning Plan to its students.
 In order to create a quality Distance Learning Plan, our team worked in close consultation with the ASUP Digital Leadership to construct an overall plan, and then divide into a
 series of committees to be sure we were considering all factors. Our Leadership Team initially held a series of meetings to discuss high level modeling including conversations
 around the best practices established by ASUP Digital, ADE Guidance, the models/options, and communication plan ideas.

 In May, we surveyed parents about their initial preference, and our June family newsletter included a short overview of next year’s options. The initial feedback from the
 parents mirrors the May survey results - strong desire for in-person options for next school year.

 We then split into 3 teams (Health and Safety, Logistics and Academics) and Team Leads from each team met weekly to discuss progress and then created a document to
 capture cross-collaborative items to ensure cohesion between teams. Additional cross-team items included creation of an initial timeline and stakeholder communication
 plan.

 Health and Safety Team: Met daily to review and implement ADE Guidance. Team created recommendations for schools including recess, screening, food/nutrition,
 maintenance, transportation to name a few.

 Logistics Team: Team created a master scheduling plan built around the guidance on the balance of synchronous and asynchronous instruction from the ASUP Digital
 Academic Team to create a schedule that has a best practice balance of synchronous and asynchronous.
 Academic Team: This team, led by a member of the ASUP Digital Academic Team, built out a training plan for implementation of our Synchronous and Asynchronous Virtual
 instruction model.
