While we recognize that remote lessons cannot fully replace face-to-face classroom instruction with a highly qualified teacher, our plan is a substitute for the instruction students would be getting in school. Students will be expected to participate in Remote Learning through the last day of school, May 28. (Last day for LHS seniors is May 15.)
Communication of Assignments
Each classroom/subject teacher will be communicating assignments with students and parents via the established platforms: SeeSaw for grades K-4 and Blackboard for grades 5-12. All teachers will be providing instruction and communicating virtually with parents and students during their normal work day.
Content focus will depend on grade level. The purpose for our youngest students (grades K-6) will be lessons that enrich, reinforce and review content already covered in class. For students in grades 7-12, content will reflect classes in each individual schedule, again with a focus to enrich, reinforce and review. Some classes, including Advanced Placement, may provide opportunities for virtual class meetings. Specials teachers, including music and art, may create choice board lessons and activities for students to complete at home.
All students in K-12 will have a blended form of content delivery, specific and appropriate for their grade level and courses, such as paper/pencil assignments and various digital programs.
Technology Devices and WiFi
Families that need assistance accessing technology tools and resources from the home (a technology device for your student to work from and/or access to the internet), please communicate this as soon as possible to your school principal or counselor.
Assignments and Grading
Assignments will either be graded or not graded, based on purpose. Teachers will remain cognizant of student workload, student access to technology and resources, and the fact that remote learning is new for everyone.
Teams working to meet timelines for completing ETRs, IEPs and IEP Progress Reports will meet virtually.
Please direct questions to the principal or counselor in your child's building, as appropriate.
