• Remote Learning

  • IMAGE: Connectedness, Community Building, Creativity & Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Consistency.  Remote Learning is a structured, engaging, high-quality academic learning experience, which allows students to connect to their teachers, classmates, and daily lessons virtually. No sign-up required to begin the school year on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.

     

    Please review MUSD's Remote Learning Parent and Student Resource Guide. The purpose of this resource guide is to provide supplemental resources to parents and students to engage in learning in a remote setting.

  • When Schools Are Able To Resume In-Person Instruction 

     

    MUSD is committed to providing families choice to make the decision that is best for their student’s learning. MUSD recognizes that these are unprecedented times and each student and family has different needs. The District also recognizes that parents have a choice when it comes to education, and MUSD parents have voiced a need for both classroom learning and online learning when the District is able to resume in-person instruction.

     

    When schools resume in-person instruction, aligned with Governor Doug Ducey's “Arizona: Open for Learning” plan, MUSD plans to offer three high-quality learning models to provide choice for students and families:

     

    Classroom Learning - available when schools are able to resume in-person instruction

    Flexible Learning - available when schools are able to resume in-person instruction

    Full-Time Marana Distance Learning - available beginning August 5 through the 2020-2021 school year for grades 5-12. 

     

    The Arizona Department of Health Services developed and released public health benchmarks to school districts for the safe return of in-person, teacher-led classroom instruction. As the finer details of each learning model developed, with a focus on school connectedness and high-quality instruction, the learning models were updated and presented to the Governing Board on September 17.  The District's Safety Protocols were also updated, aligned with public health guidance and benchmarks.
