INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Public Schools on Thursday will offer a virtual parent institute to offer tips for teaching multiple students during remote learning brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The session, "Remote Learning Tips for Parents with Multiple Children at Home," will be presented via Zoom on Thursday, the district announced Tuesday. An all-English session will begin at 5 p.m. An all-Spanish session will begin at 6 p.m.

The sessions will enable families to learn more about how each of the online learning platforms work and get tips on how to best organize the school day for students in pre-K through 12th grade. There will also be a question and answer period.

The IPS Board of School Commissioners voted in July to approve the recommendation from the administration to begin the 2020-21 school year with 100 percent remote learning for all district students through at least Oct. 2.

All students have received a device to the new school year. Students in grades pre-K through second grade received an iPad; students in grades 3 through 12 received a Chromebook. A mobile hot spot device is also available for families who do not have access to internet service.
