ISD L.I.V.E. Remote Learning

Issaquah Schools started the 2020-21 school year in a fully remote learning environment. We are calling our remote learning system ISD L.I.V.E., which stands for Learning and Instruction in Virtual Education. As of the beginning of October, a portion of our students with special needs for in-person instruction, including students in our ECE, LRCII, and ACT programs, returned to on-campus learning. ECEAP preschool students returned to in-person learning as well.

L.I.V.E. is a modified version of our regular school program using our Learning Management Systems (LMS) to create a virtual classroom. Teachers provide daily, direct instruction adapting the instructional practices used in the classroom to promote a learning community, inquiry, discourse and practice. Students experience whole class, small group and individual learning activities. Some learning takes place live — with students and teacher interacting together at the same time — while other learning activities can be completed by students on their own.

We plan to begin providing in-person instruction to more of our students, beginning with many of our youngest students. This will be a gradual process, and we will follow health protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including requiring masks for everyone, daily temperature checks and physical distancing.
