ISD L.I.V.E. Remote Learning

Issaquah Schools have 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.

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.

When it becomes safe to do so, we plan to begin reopening our school buildings and providing some in-person instruction. 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. We will prioritize in-person instruction for those students who most struggle in a remote learning setup.
