- AMI-Alternative Methods of Instruction Plans for short term closure
Confluence Academies has developed an "Alternative Methods of Instruction" Plan or AMI days for the 2021-2022 school year. This plan will provide the opportunity for all Confluence students to be engaged in meaningful learning on inclement weather days or emergency days when conditions prevent students from physically attending schools during session. It will be at the Network’s discretion if a school is considered to be "closed" or if an "AMI" day needs to be implemented.
What does Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) mean?
AMI simply allows for the continuation of learning when students miss days of regular instruction. Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper lessons. Some benefits of an AMI day include: more instructional time before State testing; assist in eliminating gaps in learning by providing individualized learning activities; and reducing the need for days to be added at the end of the school calendar.
- Virtual Learning
Students who require an alternative learning environment may enroll in Confluence's virtual learning program. Provided through the online provider Acellus, students may earn credits working from home, or from another off-site location. This program is designed for students who are behind in credits, or students for whom the traditional learning environment is not best suited to their needs.
