"AMI Days"- Alternative Methods of Instruction Days
This year, Conway Public Schools has received approval from the State to use “Alternative Methods of Instruction” (AMI) on days where we have inclement weather and must cancel school. We will refer to “AMI Days” when we talk about using these as “Make Up Snow Days” this year, and we will take advantage of using this new way of teaching and learning on these days.
When regular school is cancelled and it is considered to be an “AMI Day,” students will be given assignments for their class(es) that have been predetermined by their teachers. These assignments are consistent for various grades and subjects throughout the district and will be based on existing knowledge, not new material. They are to be completed at home within 5 days of returning to school and graded accordingly. It is our goal that “AMI Days” enable us to continue learning despite the uncontrollable elements of the weather, not allowing inclement weather to push our school calendar into June.
“AMI Days” will be used the first time we have inclement weather this school year. Please ask your child’s principal if you have questions about this new practice. Our inclement weather policies and procedures are detailed on our website here. Thank you for supporting your Conway Public Schools!
