• Overview of NTI 2DL: 

    Superintendent Manny Caulk often states, "Victory is in the classroom." This is still a sentiment that we at ACE know to be true. While the way we serve your families may differ from our usual in-person classrooms, we are still here to meet the needs of your family. Here's what your family can expect from NTI 2DL: Differentiated Distance Learning:

    Structures:

    • Schools will use a common platform (Learning Management System) to deliver instruction: either Google Classroom or Canvas.
    • Schools will create a master “NTI-2DL” schedule that will be implemented consistently (daily, weekly, etc.).
    • Schools will implement clear communication protocols from school to home.

    Learning Experiences:

    • Teachers will focus on new learning and growth for every student.
    • Teachers will diagnose unfinished learning to identify gaps and determine individual needs for acceleration.
    • Students will have access to grade-appropriate learning from digital curriculum programs and district adopted curricula.
    • Teachers will provide strong instruction by implementing a distance learning framework that includes synchronous direct instruction and asynchronous guided learning to differentiate learning and facilitate deep engagement.
    • Teachers will administer ongoing formative assessments with timely feedback.

    Accountability:

    • Teachers will have high academic expectations for all students.
    • Student learning will be assessed on an ongoing basis.
    • Families will receive regular documentation and reports on student participation, student mastery, and grades.
