  • Aim for 1hr off-screen for every 2hrs on-screen.

  • Schedule assignment posts, or post within typical business hours, once at the beginning of each week.

  • Minimize the number of posts used per day/week.

  • Protect student privacy by not posting student recordings from online platforms on social media.

  • Provide synchronous (live) learning and asynchronous (not live) learning opportunities
    for all students that totals at least 3 hours of academic learning per day.

  • Include exit tickets, or other forms of recording, to gather students’ responses about their learning experiences, their participation in physical activity, and their participation in specialty class that day.

To partner with us, FAMILIES can help by doing your best to....

  • Make sure your child is logged on to class meetings and complete their assignments each day/week. 

 

  • Review learning assignments with your child, and contact the teachers with questions.

 

  • Remind your child to attend their 20-min specialty class, and complete the related work.

 

  • Find time for your child to have physical activity.

 

  • Give your child the technology and workspace needed to complete their assignments.

 

  • Keep in contact via calls, texts, or emails; please don’t use Google Classroom to message teachers.

 

  • Help / remind your child to review their teacher’s feedback and make adjustments as needed.

 

  • Avoid posting / sharing class videos or pictures on any platform (Facebook, WeChat, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc).

 

  • Use the learning resources provided (links below) if your child needs more academic work.

 

  • Be understanding of teachers’ schedule limitations; we will always do our best to connect with you!
