Schedule of Classes
Time management is critical to student success in both a virtual and face-to-face in-person instructional model. Both students and teachers must remain in communication regarding daily schedules and assignments. As with any traditional course, there is a risk of receiving a lower grade if a student falls behind. If your student is struggling with time management, then he or she should contact his or her teacher for additional assistance. Campuses will structure the instructional day to follow their campus bell schedule. Within each course, teachers will plan for students to participate in synchronous and asynchronous learning depending on the identified learning model. The following list contains additional considerations:
- Campus Principals will be given autonomy to structure their virtual learning instruction considering the diverse configurations represented across the district
- Campuses will commit to district allocated minutes and to providing an Asynchronous schedule that incorporates direct virtual learning as well as independent practice, according to the campus’ schedule for in-person instruction.
- Direct instruction will be recorded and posted to allow students to access the information at their convenience if they are unable to login for live instruction on any given day.
- Students must have access to their teacher for each subject each day, either through direct “synchronous” instruction or through small group/individualized instruction.
