Exciting News! As you know, Remote Learning Logs have been a real challenge for school districts and families across the state. KSDE has been responsive to this situation and announced a change today. As of today Remote Learning Logs are no longer required. Instead, these will be replaced with one document of assurances that each family must sign one time (the equivalent of a permission form). Additional information will be sent out regarding the assurances document in the future, but you no longer have to worry about the Remote Learning Logs! Have a great day!
