Our Purpose The onset of COVID-19 has disrupted our world, yet the need and desire to provide education to all students remains. The KCSD commits all district resources to provide students and staff with high quality of education. Our delivery models may have changed, but our focus on student achievement and well-being has not.
Our Vision The KCSD Return to Learn plan aims to equip learners with the skills needed to excel in the virtual or physical classroom.
Iowa Department of Education Guidance Return-to-Learn plans are required to be submitted to the Iowa Department of Education by July 1, 2020. These plans are designed to help districts and nonpublic schools meet the challenges of the 2020-21 school year by: ● Ensuring that remote learning options are available for all students; ● Planning to help students catch-up for the learning they may have missed during school closures; ● Integrating public health strategies into Iowa’s schools; ● Enabling schools to move between on-site and remote learning as needed; and ● Helping the Department and our partners at Iowa’s area education agencies (AEAs) understand how best to support schools. All districts and nonpublic schools must submit a Return-to-Learn Plan.
