Bismarck Public Schools’ distance learning plan has been accepted by the state Department of Public Instruction.
Bismarck is the largest school district in the state, with 13,500 students.
Once Governor Burgum ordered school buildings closed, and told local school districts to work on alternative methods of delivering classes, the district went to work.
"It's a pretty comprehensive plan," said BPS director of professional learning Brittany Upton. "It covers everything from operations, instructional plans, health and wellness."
