  • Community Brief: SPPS COVID-19 Response Plan

    Following an Executive Order issued by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Saint Paul Public Schools should plan to participate in Distance Learning through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

    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 began 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 Distance Learning will be clearly communicated to students, families and staff on a regular basis.
