JCISD Distance Learning

We've created this page as a one-stop shop for all of those needs.On the left hand side, you'll find links to websites that have distance learning resources, tools and best practices from our Ed Tech & Whole Child teams. There are also links to websites with distance learning resources specific to special education, including one designed for our Torrant students.Other helpful resources include:
- an Educators Distance Learning Companion Guide that can be used alongside a district's reopening plan
- the JCISD Instructional Programs COVID-19 Preparedness & Response Plan
- the MI Safe Schools: Michigan's 2020-21 Return To School Roadmap
