Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI)

In the event that on-site instruction is required due to weather or health and safety concerns, teaching will take place remotely for the district, campus, or group of students affected.

In the event the district utilizes alternative methods of instruction, Sheridan School District parents/students should refer to your specific school by clicking here.

The district will follow guidelines and directives from the Arkansas Department of Health and DESE to determine working locations and guidance for the use of school buildings. Teachers will use asynchronous lessons and student assignments.
