Online Form Request:

If you have already signed up for 100% online instruction for your student(s), they have automatically been approved. Students will not be denied this option. We have extended the deadline for families to request 100% online learning to Friday, August 21st. There will be opportunities to move between on-site and online instruction once the school year begins and we are developing that structure now. If you are ready to request 100% online for the start of school, click on the URL below. https://www.ames.k12.ia.us/2020/07/official-form-request-online-learning/
