Voluntary At-Home Learning Resources

  • The BSD Curriculum & Instruction team has prepared a list of resources to ensure that students can engage in learning activities while at home.  These resources are voluntary but recommended to minimize learning loss and reinforce what students have learned.  If and when we need to move to online learning for credit, our teachers are prepared to deliver online instruction.

    We know that some students may struggle with self-managing their time. To help, we have included a sample daily schedule to provide you guidance on how to structure their days while home. In this model, we ask that students only focus on 2-4 subjects a day (fewer at the lower grades and more at the upper ones). To help customize the schedule, consider your child’s ability to stay focused and how long they can reasonably devote their full attention to a task. Listed below are suggestions; your child's day may look different.

    9:00 a.m. – Exercise, get dressed, family time
