Teaching and Learning
AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction)
Provide learning activities focused on reinforcement of critical learning standards.
Provide enrichment activities.
Introduce new concepts remotely during short-term school closure.
Parents, guardians, and students will be notified the District intends to implement an AMI day through phone call, email and text. Notification will be posted on the District website and teachers will post information in Google Classroom.
Students are expected to complete the assigned learning activities virtually, or in hard copy to be returned the first day school opens. Student attendance is determined by assignment completion on AMI days. Student questions can be directed to their teacher during AMI days.
Teachers will be accessible for questions, clarification, and feedback via email on AMI days during school hours. Teachers will keep their online classroom current with resources, assignments and contact information.
Montgomery County R-II has a DESE-approved AMI plan that allows learning to continue in the event of an extended emergency closure. Our district’s AMI plan includes a blend of online learning opportunities and learning activities that do not require any technology. When school must be canceled the notification sent by the district will let parents and students know if we are implementing AMI for that missed day. On days AMI is implemented, student attendance for that day will be determined by the percentage of learning activities completed. Staff will be available to students via email, applications such as Remind or Dojo, and other methods determined by each teacher. Detailed information about learning activities will be provided by each school or teacher, and is also available on the district website. If your child has an IEP or a 504 plan, their team will ensure appropriate modifications and accommodations are made to the AMI learning activities. If you have questions about what AMI activities your student should do, please contact their teacher for more information.
