High school (grades 9-12) coursework will be generated based on the individual student schedule due to the various courses taken. This will be communicated to the student through Google Classroom, the teacher website, or via e-mail. This will be authentic work, based on the curriculum, and is not considered a “blizzard bag.” Assignments being sent home, in the event the district is closed for six (6) to ten (10) days due to a weather-related event, will be available on Springboro Schools’ district website for students to access and complete each grade level assignment, based on their current curriculum in the four (4) core areas of instruction.
