Impact at Home

Impact Public Schools is in awe of the unity, solidarity and compassion we have seen within our communities and throughout Washington state. During this unprecedented time, we have rooted our work in our core value of Team WA. We believe that we are powerful when we work together. We are focused on building relationships based on empathy and striving towards outstanding outcomes for all public school students in our state. This value matters even more to us today.

In spite of social distancing, we have found several silver linings in this challenge. Our families are incredibly resilient and give us strength. Our young scholars are more independent than ever and are rising to the challenge! Our educational model has deepened as we iterate on an innovative, equity-driven distance learning model. We have adapted the IPS community-based learning model in novel ways, integrating social emotional learning, individualized small group instruction and de-colonized, hands-on project based learning.

IPS’ distance learning model balances synchronous instruction, real-time teacher feedback, peer-to-peer connection, virtual instructional coaching and parent training/support. This Distance Learning page is designed to serve as a resource to support families and educators as we acclimate to at-home learning

We encourage you to check back regularly for updated resources, as we are generating new resources each day as we continue to build bridges with new national and local partners to ensure that students most impacted by the virus aren’t left further behind.

“This disruption is going to affect much needed change in our education system as a whole and will help us learn how to create ‘21st Century Learners.' ”
