In the event of a school closure, Bentonville Schools plans to engage Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) as approved by the Arkansas Department of Education (DESE) in the form of electronic lessons at home for grades 2-12. Students will log on to their Chromebooks and receive directions from their teacher(s). AMI at home will maintain the same rigor of a blended school day and the full complement of state standards.
All students in kindergarten and first grades as well as any families in other grades without internet access at home will be provided with another option to continue student learning. While this option will not be the same as other students’, it will be as comparable.
Families requiring assistance or additional information about AMI should contact their classroom teacher or principal directly. See your school webpage > Parents > Teacher Websites for teacher contact information.
