REACH Annual Evaluation

AMI Days 
What is Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI)?

An AMI make-up day will be determined by District Administration based on weather forecast and an actual day being missed due to inclement weather or for some other unforeseen reason. Once it is determined that a day has been declared as an AMI day, all district teachers and staff will be notified so that they may inform their students of the proposed date. Particular attention will be given to when the day is missed and if there are consecutive days missed. Again, the amount of instructional time lost due to days missed will be a determining factor as to whether or not a day would be declared an AMI day. The other factor to determine whether or not to claim an AMI day would be teacher access to students before and after the declared AMI day.
