Lafayette County High School Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) Days
The Lafayette County School District has been approved for Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) days. AMI days will be used when the school or district is closed due to exceptional or emergency circumstances such as inclement weather, utility outage, or other rare cases. An announcement of school closure will be provided through E-notes, district social media accounts, and local radio stations.
Lafayette County High School will utilize print resources, as well as electronic resources, as an alternative method of instruction on days where instruction is lost due to inclement weather and/or other emergencies that may result in the closure of schools. The resources will be organized into learning packets for students. The packets are due to the lack of internet connectivity in rural areas, as well as the possibility of power outage in inclement weather. Learning packets will be distributed to students when they return from the missed days.
In grades 7-12 student packets will be provided that include ACT Aspire and/or ACT Practice Tests for each of the four areas: reading, English, math, and science. Social studies will be incorporated through the reading passage(s). Student work will be scored, and students will receive feedback in a timely manner. Results will be used to determine the areas of strength and weakness in order to better prepare students for college and career readiness.
Student attendance in grades K-12 will be determined based upon the work completed and submitted. A student shall be determined as present if he or she returns the assigned AMI work within the allotted time frame. All work and attendance must be recorded within 5 days of returning to school
