COVID-19 Current Information and Updates
The American International School Dhaka was the first school in Bangladesh to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, suspending classes on Monday, March 16 just prior to the announcement of the Government of Bangladesh.
We moved to deliver online learning immediately and we were prepared from several years of virtual learning planning and preparation. This remarkable transition was the first of many demonstrations of the adaptability, creativity, and resilience of our community. AISD closed the School Year 2019-20 with 11 weeks of continuous virtual learning. During our adjustment to this global health emergency, AISD has learned much that will inform our work in a hybrid/blended learning environment that will be part of our School Year 2020-21.
AISD is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Please refer back to this page for updates and information regarding AISD's response and protocols.
