ARKANSAS PBS

Arkansas Teachers of the Year are working with Arkansas PBS (AETN) to help share programming during our AMI days. To find the channel, look for your local PBS station, not the national channel. It's available on ARKANSAS PBS. There is a list for providers and corresponding channels on the ArkansasPBS website. If they don't have cable, an antennae should pick it up. It may take some fiddling with. Otherwise, its posted on https://www.myarkansaspbs.org/ArkansasAMI/k-2 after 4 pm each day.

 
The daily schedule beginning weekdays at 8 a.m. will be divided into the following programming blocks:
  • 8-9:30 a.m.: Grades Pre-K-2
  • 9:30-11 a.m.: Grades 3-5
  • 11 a.m.-1 p.m.: Grades 6-8
 
Viewers statewide can tune in to the following channels, depending on their location, over the air using an indoor or outdoor antenna:
  • Northwest Arkansas – KAFT, channel 13.
  • North Central Arkansas – KEMV, channel 6.
  • Northeast Arkansas – KTEJ, channel 19.
  • Central Arkansas – KETS, channel 2.
  • Southwest Arkansas – KETG, channel 9.
  • Southeast Arkansas – KETZ, channel 12.
Arkansas PBS is also available through select cable and satellite providers. More information about how to watch can be found at myarkansaspbs.org/channelinformation.

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
