2 Week eLearning Plan

Hi Parents,

I had some requests from families looking to modify the daily learning plan to better meet their home-school schedules. I am posting the 2 week plan below for you to use as needed. Please note that our Disney facilities teacher learning plans (music, p.e., library, etc.) are not included in this document. Those activities are being added to the daily lesson plan updates as applicable. Enjoy!

Internet Connectivity for Students

Students who do not have internet connectivity at home may be eligible for the Comcast Internet Essentials Program.

From their website:

As the country deals with the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Comcast is taking immediate steps to help connect more low-income families to the Internet at home. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, new Internet Essentials customers will receive two free months of Internet service. We are also increasing the speed of the program to 25 Mbps downloads, and 3 Mbps uploads for all new and existing customers.

To be eligible a household must meet at least one of the following criteria:

·         MEDICAID: card or most recent eligibility letter for an adult in your household.

·         Public housing assistance documentation such as your lease, housing assistance payment (HAP) contract, or eligibility documentation from HUD.

·         SNAP: letter indicating you are approved for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits.

·         TANF: eligibility letter for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

·         SSI: eligibility letter for Supplemental Security Income.

·         NSLP/Head Start: copy of a letter indicating current participation in the National School Lunch Program or Head Start, with your child’s name, the school name, and the address of where you are requesting service.

·         LIHEAP: letter confirming your eligibility for Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

·         WIC: eligibility letter for the Women, Infants, and Children program.

·         FEDERAL PELL GRANT: (Colorado and Illinois only) documentation from your community college’s financial aid office.

·         VA PENSION: veterans pension eligibility determination letter from the Veterans Administration.

·         Tribal assistance eligibility letter, including TTANF, FDPIR, etc.

While we do not endorse one internet company over another, we thought that we would share this information with students who may be worried about how they will access online classes from home.
