Distance Learning

Our goals for Distance Learning are to keep students engaged, focus on the essential skills that will allow them to be successful, and to maintain social connections with other students and teachers to provide stability and decrease social isolation during school closure. 

Instruction

Every teacher, regardless of discipline, will share weekly activities that are designed for students as well as resources for parents on Google Classroom once a week. Lessons and activities will align to the District-adopted curriculum.  By their choice, families can utilize online instruction and resources, as well as physical, paper instructional materials for at-home learning.

Teachers will send to students weekly video lessons for every subject or course taught each week including English Language Development. There will also be lessons from STEAM, Physical Education, and Elementary Art and Music.

Maximum Student Work

The total time spent on schoolwork at each grade level should follow these guidelines as closely as possible, Monday through Friday:

TK - 2nd grade: 1-3 hours per day 
3rd - 8th grade: 2-4 hours per day

This does not include Zoom check ins, office hours or small group additional support or elementary art, music, PE lessons.

Grading

The Board of Trustees has provided direction at the April 2, 2020 meeting that all grading should be suspended for the remainder of the school year, and students should be promoted to the next grade for the 2020-21 school year.
