GOLD Days

GOLD (Goodhue Online Learning Day)

What is a Goodhue Online Learning Day?

GOLD refers to a school day when instead of coming to a school building, teachers and student communicate online, or set up prior learning expectations, and the students continue their learning from home. On a GOLD teachers will share assignments, and hold office hours in which they are available to provide learning support to students.

When will we have Goodhue Online Learning Days?

A GOLD will be held on days where there are unplanned school closures due to situations such as severe weather or power outages. On these days:

  • Families of students will receive an automated phone call notifying them of the impending GOLD. Announcements will also be made via television and the school web site.

  • Teachers will communicate assignments for the students in the courses that would have met that day.

  • Teachers will be online and accessible during regular school hours to provide support for student learning.

  • Teachers may also have sent home preplanned activities to be used on a GOLD. This will be common in our early grades, but may take place in other grades, too.

  • As always, accommodations will be made for students with special needs.
