  • Community Brief: SPPS COVID-19 Response Plan

    Following an Executive Order issued by Governor Walz, Saint Paul Public Schools are closed until March 27. Instruction will resume through Distance Learning on April 6, after spring break. Following directions from the Governor, families and staff should plan to participate in Distance Learning until at least May 4, 2020.

    Saint Paul Public Schools will take advantage of its Personalized Learning Through Technology infrastructure to support Distance Learning in grades Pre-K through 12. All SPPS K-12 students have been issued iPads as part of our regular instruction. On Monday, April 6, SPPS will begin our Asynchronous Distance Learning program for all students using these devices.

    Asynchronous Distance Learning is when a teacher and a student interact with learning activities in different places and at different times. Students enrolled in asynchronous distance learning courses are allowed to complete their work any time of the day that works best for a student and their family.

    This style of Distance Learning gives students and families the most flexibility. We believe that, given the current circumstances, this is the best way to launch SPPS Distance Learning.

    Each school will determine common Distance Learning grading practices, and develop a timeline for student workflow to be used by all teachers at their school. School expectations for the first week of Distance Learning, and moving forward, will be clearly communicated to students, families and staff in the coming days, if it has not been already.
