Distance Learning for All
Oregon’s commitment to Distance Learning for All aligns with our deep commitment to learning and maintaining educational pathways for students during this critical time. As educators and leaders, we know the value of school and the importance of learning and social connection. Maintaining student-to-educator relationships will ensure care, connection and continuity of learning for us and our students. We have an opportunity to explore new ways of relating, teaching and learning through a distance learning model.
Distance Learning for All, the title of the plan put forth by ODE, outlines a process for students to interact with their teachers and other school staff. Each Oregon District has been directed to have their Distance Learning for All plan in place by April 13, 2020.
Distance Learning: Instruction in which the student and instructor are in different locations. Students have access to appropriate educational materials and receive ongoing interaction with their licensed and/or registered teacher(s). This includes multimedia communication and blended learning strategies, not just online learning.

We will need the deep support, patience, and resilience of every member of the Riverdale School Districts’ team, our families, and our students, as we shift to a model that delivers students with an education from afar. We are committed and ready to take on this challenge in order to deliver the best classroom experience, remotely, as possible. This will take partnership with parents and families to meet the learning needs of your child(ren). We will be here to support you and your student(s) as we embark on this journey, together.
