(Isle, MN) — Isle High School announced the decision to change the current Hybrid Learning Model to Synchronous Distance Learning beginning Monday, November 16th. We spoke with Isle Superintendent Dean Kapsner on the reasoning behind making the switch at this time.
Isle High Schools will hold in-person classes on November 9-10 and staff will use November 11-12 with no school to prepare for Distance Learning. Kapsner mentioned the needed time for preparation.
Additional resources for families, including WiFi installed in the parking lot, technology assistance, and meal deliveries, will be a part of the transition to Distance Learning.
As Isle High School goes to Distance Learning, the subject of High School Sports comes up and the decision to suspend Fall Sports was not an easy decision.
The Synchronous Distance Learning model will have teachers holding class at their regularly scheduled time with students participating via Google Meets and Google Classroom.
