2021-2022 AMI (Virtual) Days Information

Elementary Schedule

The Milan C-2 School District will once again be eligible to participate in AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction) Weather Days for the 2021-2022 school year.  While we all appreciate a good old-fashioned snow day, these days allow our district to limit, and possibly eliminate, the need to add extra days onto our school calendar due to weather and/or poor road conditions.

The school’s approved AMI plan allows us to make up 36 calendar hours through virtual instruction, this equates to about 5 full school days.  Therefore, there will not be unlimited amounts of AMI Weather Days.

It is important that your student participates in the virtual meetings and online assignments on the days that are utilized as AMI.  Students that do not complete assignments or show up for class video calls will be marked as absent for that day and required to make up the work.

Instruction on AMI Days will be limited to review, foundational skills work, and reinforcement of current classwork.  All classes PreK-12 have scheduled times designated for Google Meetings or GoGuardian Calls (Elementary specials and specified Elementary special services classes only).  This schedule is designed with multi-student families in mind.  We know that having multiple devices on home internet networks can put strain on the quality of the internet service.  Additionally, students without access to the internet at home can checkout a Verizon Hotspot for AMI days. If your child will need access to a hotspot, please contact your child’s teacher to let them know.

Our students and staff did an excellent job with AMI Days in the 2020-2021 school year and I’m looking forward to seeing all of the great work that will take place this year!  If you have any questions or concerns, please communicate those with your student’s teacher and we will do our best to get them resolved as soon as possible.
