Goals and Guidelines for Flexible Learning Days 

United South Central Schools

What is Flexible Learning? Flexible Learning involves online lessons that students complete when away from the physical school building.  By using one-to-one Chromebooks/iPads, USC recognizes that a robust education can continue even when students and teachers are not in the same location.  Along with emphasizing the value of learning, the Flexible Learning plan encourages character growth in the areas of self-sufficiency, adaptability, and perseverance.  

What are the Goals of USC’s Flexible Learning Initiative?  

  1. To minimize the disruption to academic progress caused by emergency school closures by making these out-of-school days as educationally productive and engaging as possible.
  2. To allow USC’s PK-12 students the opportunity to practice the kind of online learning that is increasingly part of both college study and workplace training.  
  3. To maximize use of USC’s one-to-one technology.

What does Flexible Learning look like at USC?  

How Will Families Be Notified That Flexible Learning Is Expected?  If regular school is cancelled, families, teachers, and students will receive an announcement about Flexible Learning expectations through the school messaging system.  Also, a notice will be placed on the USC website, on the school’s official Facebook site, and, if possible, the implementation of a Flexible Learning Day will be broadcast in conjunction with the school closing announcements on radio and television.

How can Parents Help Support Student Success with Flexible Learning?

How will USC address the concerns of students with special needs?  Working with parents, students, and teachers, the Special Education case managers have established Contingency Learning Plans to follow for students on IEPs for distance learning. Case managers will follow the distance learning plan in CLPs for flexible learning days.
