Alternative Methods of Instruction

You are here

Beginning in school year 2020-21, a local education agency (LEA) will not be required to make up school hours that are lost or cancelled due to exceptional or emergency circumstances (up to 36 hours) if the LEA implements an Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) Plan that is approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Please see the information below to assist with your district's AMI Plan.
