On remote learning days, daily attendance will be taken in the student information system, PowerSchool.
A student is considered present for daily attendance during a remote learning day:
- If a student completes his/her daily assignments, either online or offline; or
- If a student has a daily check-in, a two-way communication, with the appropriate teacher(s).
- Teachers and counselors will check in with students/families who do not maintain regular attendance.
Learning Management Systems
The Learning Management System (LMS) will be used by each class or grade level to manage all the assignments and important information for families during Remote Learning.
- Grades K-2 will use SeeSaw.
- Grades 3-8 will use Google Classrooms.
Each grade level team will gather the materials to distribute for students to support their online and offline learning. Typically, Materials Exchange will happen at the school on Flex Mondays, but not necessarily every flex Monday. Teachers will let you know the schedule for Materials Exchange.
- Grade level teams will share the teaching load and deliver the same lessons each week.
- Each classroom teacher will also provide opportunities for “office hours.”
- Schedules should be shared out to families by 9:00 on Monday mornings so they can plan for the week.
- Our goal is to provide consistent schedules so students and families have an idea of what to expect each week.
- Students will have live/recorded lessons from specialists.
- The expectation is that work for specials will be completed just like core academic subjects.
- K-4 grade students will have visual art, dance, or music twice a week and Spanish or PE once a week.
- 5-8 grade students will have visual art, drama, or music twice a week and Spanish or PE once a week.
- Grade levels will have an assigned time for specials.
