Digital School Days

  • The Washoe County School District (WCSD) is excited to introduce Digital School Days for the 2018-2019 school year! When weather and road conditions are too hazardous for students, families, and staff members to travel to school, WCSD administrators will implement a Digital School Day so students can complete learning activities and assignments provided by the teacher at home.

    This concept is based on a successful pilot program conducted at Incline Village schools last year.

    Principals, teachers, and other school staff members have prepared detailed plans for the implementation of Digital School Days. These plans will include detailed strategies to deliver lessons to students who don't have access to technology. These plans will also include protocols for when a teacher is not able to access technology and for when the hazardous weather and road conditions were unexpected. Additionally, there will be opportunities for students to make up any work that they had been unable to access during the Digital School Day. 

    Each school has conducted tests of their plans to ensure functionality, and staff members have reached out to families with information about these plans and tests.
