    Small Group/Individualized Instruction Periods

    Small Group/Individualized Instruction Periods for virtual teachers are to be time for students to access the teacher for assistance with independent practice.  It is not a “conference” period.  Just as they would be working with students and providing support during independent practice if students were present in the classroom, they will be providing that access and communicating virtually with the students they serve.

    1. Be available to serve students during scheduled small group instruction periods.
    2. Use this time to contact families who have not been engaged in online learning
    3. Provide academic feedback to students based on their work
