    Direct Instruction Definitions: This document defines what is meant by the phrase “direct instruction” in the Distance Learning 2.0 documents developed by the PCS workgroup. It also includes a lengthy FAQ section that answers many common teacher questions. 

    ParentSquare Communication Tool: ParentSquare is the newly adopted home-to-school communication tool. This is a district standard that will be used for all district, site, and classroom communication with families. This document has the accordion message and links to some videos about the tool. 

    Tools for Use in Distance Learning 2.0: Reviewing parent and teacher feedback, we learned that the variety of base tools in use was challenging and confusing for our families. The workgroup developed a list of tools to be used in every classroom assigned by grade level. The workgroup is currently working on a list of recommended tools for different grades and subjects.
