Grade level teams will continue to determine priority standards that will drive student learning through the remainder of the school closure. While the primary focus for learning is literacy and mathematics, science and social studies materials are also incorporated to support literacy. Student activities are presented in the form of Learning Boards with five activities within each subject area. These are offered as printed packets and online for those families with access to technology at home. Paper packets are available to parents through a pickup location at each elementary school or delivered as necessary. Teachers will continue communicating and providing feedback to students via phone calls, video conferencing, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Google classroom. Starting on April 20, 2020, these meetings will emphasize support for the new learning while maintaining social-emotional supports.

Middle SchoolAt the start of each week, students will receive 5 instructional lessons and activities in language arts, math, science, social studies, and their specials (art, CTE, PE, music) that are aligned to 4th quarter priority standards. These instructional activities will be shared out through student emails and Google Classroom. Students who do not have internet access will be able to pick up paper versions in the main entryway of BMS or you may contact BMS at (563) 359-3686 ext 5000 to make an alternative plan for obtaining the material. Students are strongly encouraged to share their completed work with their content area teachers so that teachers can provide specific feedback. Most grade-level content areas are also providing the students and families with proficiency rubrics that students can use as a self-assessment and teachers will use to provide specific feedback. Additionally, teachers will continue communicating and providing feedback to students via phone calls, video conferencing, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Google classroom. Teachers will also use these virtual methods to meet in small groups to help with skill remediation.
