IKM-Manning Choses Voluntary Education Delivery For All Students During Extended School Closure

The IKM-Manning Community School District announced today (Wednesday) they have chosen the voluntary educational delivery option for prekindergarten through 12th-grade students during the extended school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Instructors will be reaching out to parents, guardians and students in the coming days with more information on what enrichment opportunities will be available. Superintendent, Trevor Miller, encourages families with questions or concerns about the materials or internet availability to contact the administration or their respective teachers directly. Under the voluntary delivery method, all work is considered optional and missed instructional time will not need to be added back to the calendar, However, students are highly encouraged to take advantage of all offered lessons. Currently, students are scheduled to return to class on Friday, May 1, and all buildings, facilities and scheduled events, including prom and athletic competitions, have been postponed or closed to the public. In a message to IKM-Manning families, Miller says, “We know that you have many questions about how this extended school closure will impact all of us. Please know that we will continue to work with the Iowa Department of Education, Iowa’s Area Education Agencies and our neighboring districts to uncover answers. One this is for certain, however; we are all in this together and we will find the answers that make sense for our kids and families given these unprecedented times.”
