Extended DLD 2.0
Extended Digital Learning for Dalton Public Schools has been created to give learning opportunities for when school is closed for extended periods of time. We continue to try to provide strong content, engaging experiences, and instructional support to our students. Teachers and students are still encouraged to interact through email, phone calls, virtual meetings, chats, and our learning management system. Digital interaction will never replace the value of face to face interaction, however, Dalton Public Schools is committed to keep our students safe and learning when extended outages occur.
Pre-Kindergarten students will access their extended learning through the Dalton Public Schools Website using this HOME PAGE.
Students in kindergarten through 5th grade will use Canvas to access and complete digital content in their assigned courses. Students will go through the assigned module (instructions, content, activity, feedback, and resources) in order to complete the day of work. Each day of work will consist of a core subject, a Math mini-lesson, and English/Language Arts mini-lesson.
If you have questions, please contact your student's teacher via email, Canvas, or phone.
