Distance Learning

Welcome to the Fremont County #14 School District Distance Learning Page.

During this time of the COVID-19(Coronavirus) pandemic, Fremont County School District #14 recognize that our families, community, and those across the nation are facing unprecedented times. First and foremost, the health and safety of our students, families and staff is top priority. While schools are closed during this time, we will provide our students with quality education through our Adaptive Learning Plan. Wyoming Indian Schools will do their best to keep you up to date with important information and updates about your child’s education on this website page.

Wyoming Indian Schools understands the complexity of this new experience of delivering education outside the physical walls of our schools. During this time of distance learning we will learn, along with you, the challenges these experiences will bring. We ask for your patience and flexibility during this time of school closure, as we make a large shift to provide the best education for our students.

The Board of Trustees, administration and staff wish good health and safety during this time. Do what you can to help “flatten the curve” so that our students can come back into our schools. If you have any questions or concerns, please stay in touch. Be safe, we hope to see our students back in our schools as soon as possible.

General Information

Student attendance will be taken weekly. Attendance will be based on teachers having an academic communication with each student or his/her parents. The communication must be two-way between teacher/student or parent and may include phone calls, emails, a discussion board, or live video conferencing (such as Zoom or Google Hangout). 

Fremont County School #14 counselors are available Monday-Friday to help students and parents navigate these uncertain times. Students receiving regular counseling services will be contacted to set up their regular counseling sessions via phone or online meetings. Counselor contact information is provided below.

Teachers will base instruction and instructional activities on the priority standards identified for their courses. Teachers will determine the most critical skills and content that students need to master during the school closure. Supplemental and/or enrichment activities may be provided to students as needed. Instruction will be based on priority standards and proficiency scales.

Teachers will follow grading policies per student handbooks and course syllabus. In addition, teachers may include points for student participation including but not limited to: time logged into online platforms, completion of assignments, participation in class activities, attending class via Zoom/Google Hangouts, discussion board participation, responding to teacher communications through email, phone calls, messaging. Students must show proficiency on priority standards.

In addition to online learning, teachers will also send instructional materials home to students. These materials will be available for pick up from the high school Mondays during the sack lunch times (11:00AM-12:30PM) or may be picked up at one of the following locations: Riverton - Fairgrounds, Arapaho - Great Plains Hall or Ft. Washakie - In front of Hines Clothing Store from 11:45AM - 12:15PM.
