Linn-Mar COVID-19 Educational Plan Approved by State
The Iowa Department of Education has given schools three options for learning.
- No continuous learning (School days have to be made up)
- Voluntary Educational Enrichment Opportunities (School days do not have to be made up)
- Required Educational Services (School days do not have to be made up)
The Linn-Mar Community School District has received permission to move forward with a combination of options two and three. Linn-Mar has chosen to do a combination of “Voluntary” and “Required” teaching models as defined by the Iowa Department of Education from April 13th – April 30th or until further guidance is provided by the state.
Grades PreK-8 will be using the “Voluntary” model: Schools may not require students to participate or grade any work.
Grades 9-12 will use the “Required” model: Academic work is equivalent in effort and rigor to typical classroom work.
We know many parents are wondering how we are going to do this. There will be more specific details available from building principals by the end of the week. We appreciate your patience as we work through our plans to best continue to Inspire Learning, Unlock Potential, and Empower Achievement at Linn-Mar.
