    • 9-12 Distance Learning Schedule

      Below, the District provides an overview of daily and weekly work for each content area. Your child’s teachers will provide additional details regarding live teacher support sessions. Teachers will host a 30-minute class time on Teams 2-5 days a week at consistent, announced days and times aligned to your child’s schedule.

      We are being very mindful that there are dozens of factors that can make distance learning tough to navigate, and families should plan with their child’s teachers what the expected level of engagement will be. With teachers, families, and students working together, the next ten weeks can be a valuable learning opportunity for all of our learners.

    • Grading

      Teachers will be providing feedback to all work that students turn in, but students will not be given grades. Teachers may evaluate the work, such as saying “Outstanding” or giving a percentage of correct answers, but that grade will not be included in any report cards or permanent records. Any feedback given by a teacher will only be used to communicate how well the student completed the work. Students will receive a grade for the 3rd quarter based on their academic performance through March 12, 2020, the last day students attended school. This grade will also be given for 4th quarter.  Students who would like to improve their 4th quarter grades may use enrichment provided by their teacher. Otherwise the grade from quarter 3 will also count for quarter 4.

      Assignments will be enrichment based. Although students may be given an opportunity for extra credit to improve their 4th quarter grades, distance learning assignments will not change students’ 3rd quarter grades.
