Dear Dardanelle Middle School Families:

The Arkansas Department of Education granted the Dardanelle School District five (5) “Alternate Method of Instruction” (AMI) days for the 2019-2020 school year. The plan will allow students to continue learning at home when conditions prevent school from being in session.

What Is Alternate Method of Instruction (AMI)?

AMI allows for continuous learning when students miss days of regular instruction due to inclement weather or emergency issues that would require the school to close. Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, intervention, and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper lessons.

How Will AMI Days Work?

  • Teachers will give students a Reading Response Journal Entry form to be placed in their binder. When we have an AMI day, they will use the form for their Language Arts assignment for the AMI day. Students will turn in the assignment to their language arts teacher the day we return to school.
  • 6th grade students will review multiplication facts on their own. Grades 7th and 8th will review order of operations, fractions and solving one and two-step equations. All students can use Go Math for resources and tutorials. Students will be given a quiz the day we return to school.
  • The assignments will be posted on the middle school page, of the Dardanelle School District web site.
  • Days that are determined to be AMI days will not be added to the school calendar and will not be made up at the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

Our goal is to offer continuous learning and engagement for students on AMI days and not require the days to be made up at the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

 

Sincerely,

 

John David Keeling
