Students will be given digital and/or hard-copy content depending on the school they attend.

If students have internet access, they will be able to complete work electronically while students that do not have internet access will complete paper packets.

Students will have five days to finish the work.

The goal of AMI days is to avoid an interruption of the learning process.
