Remote learning updates: April 20, 2020
We are thankful for our staff and families who are working hard to support students in these very difficult times. Without each other, we would not have been able to make the significant shift from in-person learning to remote learning. As we move into this next stage of remote learning, we are pleased to share information about our plans moving forward.
These plans have been developed to foster connection and to ensure the success of each student. They also provide the flexibility required for our educators and students to manage learning outside of our classrooms. We will continue to monitor and adjust as we learn together in the coming weeks and months.
Remote learning skills and concepts
For each grade-level and subject-area, we’ve identified the essential skills and concepts students need to master to be prepared to move on to the next grade or receive the credit necessary for a course. Educators are designing weekly plans for the remainder of the year, including learning activities and resources for each week that will support students in mastering those skills and concepts.
Weekly schedules and communication
To help parents and students navigate remote learning, teachers will be using a common format for weekly learning e-mails. These e-mails include an outline of the lessons for the week and will be sent each Monday. They are designed to provide students and families and with consistent, accessible information to help with planning for the week.
Daily lessons for students will available primarily through our digital learning platforms - PowerSchool Learning and OneNote. The weekly email will point students and families to the lessons.
