Continuous Distance Learning

Updated: April 17, 2020

Continuous Distance Learning

Now that the school building closure is extended through the end of the school year, Kennewick School District will continue to focus on a Continuous Distance Learning model, where teachers are providing students with weekly learning plans. Continuous Distance Learning focuses on critical core learning standards, and learning activities that will help students progress in their learning and help them prepare for the next level.

The Family Learning Resources guide is now incorporated into Continuous Distance Learning. The district will continue to offer this webpage with learning resources and links that may support the learning activities provided by your teacher or that parents may choose to utilize on their own. We are also providing a suggested daily schedule to help add some structure to your child’s learning routine.

To get started, click on your desired grade level to access the resources. Some of the links are available through Rapid Identity, which can be accessed using the following instructions: Rapid Identity Help.

Parents of students who qualify for special education services, may utilize activities at any of the levels appropriate for their child. For more detailed assistance, please contact your child’s teachers or case manager. If you are not sure who that person is or how to contact them, you can contact Becca Anderson in Special Services at becca.anderson@ksd.org or (509) 222-6571.

Tips for helping your child stay on track and expand their learning:

  • Set up a daily family routine, including healthy eating and sleeping habits.
  • Provide a place and time at home for homework.
  • Check on activities and projects.
  • Talk each day with your child about his/her activities.
  • Promote literacy by reading to your child.
  • Limit and monitor TV watching, gaming, social media and computer time.
