    Remote Learning Update

    Covid-19 has delayed our distribution process, but we are working diligently to roll laptops out as soon as possible. Parents will receive a call and email from the district when their child's device is ready. Student attendance will not be negatively impacted while we wait for more devices to arrive.

  • Remote Learning Attendance    SISD Remote Learning Academy

    During the 2020-21 school year, students will be able to participate in three instructional models: on-site, remote synchronous, and remote asynchronous.
    • On-site instruction will occur when students return physically into the building and their teacher provides direct instruction in the classroom. (not available at this time, due to a city ordnance)
    • Remote synchronous instruction occurs when students participate in two-way, real-time/live, virtual instruction between teachers and students when students are not on campus.
    • Remote asynchronous instruction does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time. In this method, students learn from instruction that is not necessarily being delivered in-person or in real time. This type of instruction may include various forms of digital and online learning, such as prerecorded video lessons or game-based learning tasks that students complete on their own, and pre-assigned work and formative assessments made available to students on paper
