Is student work being assigned and completed during the COVID-19 closures considered “enrichment” and therefore not graded?

Yes, in place of traditional in-person classroom instruction, teachers are utilizing an instructional enrichment approach that will continue to engage students in a modified approach to learning until school buildings can reopen. This enrichment will involve a mixed methodology approach, such as independent projects, study packets, distance learning, and e-conferencing, with an increased utilization of technology to the extent possible. The Hawai’i Department of Education recognizes that some students will need opportunities beyond enrichment to meet graduation or promotion requirements, and guidance has been shared for providing such accommodations.
