Section II: Content Delivery/Progress Monitoring
Monarch Academy’s Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP) provides information about the educational options available for the 2020-2021 school year. Families may choose from a traditional face-to-face option incorporating guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local Department of Health (DOH), Monarch Live Instructional Learning (LIL), or at home Paper Packet Option (PPO).
All ICP students will be tested via NWEA MAP testing. This adaptive, diagnostic assessment is completed three times a year to measure growth and offers valuable information for individual student educational plans. Students in the LIL classrooms must be virtually streamed in while testing is completed. PPO students are encouraged to attend in-class learning that day or have the option to virtually stream in for the testing times. Technology is available to checkout.

· CLASS DOJO
· GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Progress monitoring for LIL students is established in the Google Classroom where students are designated assignments and graded through a program of study.
Each student is emailed a Program of Study (POS) every two weeks to ensure parents, acting as academic coaches, confirm their child is achieving scope and sequence goals for each academic area. Students who are unable to type on a Word document in the Google classroom can upload pictures of handwritten work on the Google Classroom to be graded.
Progress monitoring for PPO students are emailed or handed the same program of study to complete every two weeks. Books and worksheets are submitted every two weeks to Monarch Academy and returned with a new program of study to complete.
