Distance Learning

The Howard-Winneshiek CSD Learning Plan closely follows guidance from the Iowa Department of Education and the Iowa Department of Health, and includes input from staff, students and district families.

The plan prioritizes the health and safety of students and staff, recognizes the importance of in-person learning opportunities — especially for our younger learners — and emphasizes stability of instruction delivery no matter the learning model in use. 

School districts will use one of two models: in-person and/or distance learning. Howard-Winneshiek CSD will work closely with experts from Iowa and Howard County Department of Health to decide if and when we need to shift between models depending on the progression of the virus in the Howard community.
