In Adams 12 Five Star Schools, learning pods are a no-cost, in-person option for students. Learning pod activities are conducted during the standard school day time frame for students who need access to internet connectivity and/or students who need a safe and productive place to engage in remote learning. Substitute teachers and district support staff without other duties during periods of remote learning monitor the learning pods.
