Distance Learning@ISS
NEW! ISS Re-Entry Website
Learning at the core of all we do

The ISS learning statement, “Learning at the core of all we do”, is at the heart of any move to distance learning. We define distance learning as any learning that allows instructor, students, and content to be located in different locations so that instruction and learning occur independent of place and potentially time. The purpose of this Handbook is to describe the expectations, procedures, and supports that will be implemented in the case of school closure as a result of our Emergency Response Plan and in accordance with an official mandate. These guidelines address both short and long-term closure scenarios. The primary goal is to maintain as much continuity of learning as is possible.

Caps and gowns, the processional Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 , an atmosphere of excited anticipation of the future tinged with sadness at saying some goodbyes. Yes, graduation is a significant rite of passage. Congratulations to the Class of 2020, we wish you well!

This week looks at 2012 to 2015, years in which ISS enjoyed new facilities, introduced new service opportunities in India and South Africa, started the ISS STEAM initiative and gained authorization to run the IB MYP also on the Sindelfingen campus.

#35thbirthday #tbt

The performing arts at Sindelfingen is as vibrant as ever, even in a somewhat virtual world! This week Grades 6 and 7 students participated in virtual workshops with JOiN for the very first time!

Scope

The policy and guidelines apply to the following situations: 

  • Short (1-2 school days) or long-term closure (more than 2 school days) where all faculty, staff, and students are not able to be on campus. 
  • Short or long-long term absence of faculty and/or students, who are not ill, due to emergency circumstances. 

From the date of closure or absence, faculty and students will have two working days to prepare for implementation. 

In the event of any school closure, the International School of Stuttgart will provide distance learning education for its students. The continuity of learning will be aligned with the school’s Vision, Mission and Philosophy, as well as through the PYP, MYP and Diploma program expectations of the International Baccalaureate.
