Remote Learning

Remote Learning

What is a remote learning day?

A remote learning day is defined as an educational program designed to provide continuation of learning and opportunities for engagement for students under conditions that prohibit the learner and instructor from being in the same physical space. 

Our remote learning days will support the following goals:

  1. Ensure students are safe and feel connected to the school community. 
  2. Provide remediation for students who have not yet demonstrated proficiency in learning goals prior to Monday, March 16.
  3. Provide enrichment for all students with feedback to enhance learning and help prepare students for future coursework when we return to traditional learning. Enrichment is defined broadly and may include content that was originally planned for the fourth quarter of the school year.

Staff Expectations

Teachers will continue to follow the attendance expectations of the E-Learning Plan.

Teachers will continue to provide learning opportunities for students by posting assignments and expectations in Schoology. The assignments should be reasonable and allow students to improve their skills. Pre-AP/AP teachers should continually visit College Board’s website to seek opportunities to support students in preparing for exams. Teachers should participate in meetings (including IEP meetings) as invited.

Teachers will assign points/grades as “Pass” or “Incomplete”. The grade of “Pass” shall be reported in a format that will “do no educational harm” to the overall grade. Teachers will provide students with multiple opportunities to earn credit for assignments. Opportunities for engagement throughout the week might include a lesson exit slip, an individual or class community check-in, and/or a brief assignment.

Students who have not actively engaged in the Act of God days should be contacted by the teacher, counselor, and/or division lead (in that order), and explain the expectations for remote learning days vs. Act of God days. All contacts should be logged in PowerSchool. 

Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with their course teams to provide consistency in assignments and expectations.

Student Expectations

Students are encouraged to continue the learning process during remote learning days. Students will complete the work assigned by their teachers and posted on Schoology. 

Students are required to check in by completing the form link posted in Schoology every day.  Students who do not engage in remote learning for the fourth quarter will earn a grade of “I” (Incomplete).

The semester grade for students earning an incomplete for the fourth quarter will be an Incomplete (I) for the semester. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will need to complete 80% of all assignments per class posted to avoid a grade of Incomplete for the quarter or semester.  Seniors will need to complete 60% of all assignments per class posted by May 8, 2020, to avoid a grade of Incomplete for the quarter or semester.

Teacher – Student Communication

Teachers will communicate with students through their school email accounts, as well as other methods through Schoology. Students should check their school email accounts daily. 

Grading

Teachers may assign the following grades: A, B, C, or I. Grades are based on the following scores: 

  • A (90-100)
  • B (80-89)
  • C (70-79)
  • I (69 or below)

The second semester will be weighted 50/50 and the final exam will be waived. Any student who earned an “F” for the third quarter and does not complete any work to improve their overall grade will earn an Incomplete (I) for the semester. If a student has not yet completed work, teachers must put an 'M' for missing assignments in the grade book.

Work completed March 16-April 3 (Act of God days) will be extra credit for fourth marking period. All students will also have multiple opportunities to improve their grades. Students will have the opportunity to resolve incompletes, as well.

Senior Expectations

The last day of instruction for seniors will be May 8, 2020.
Senior students must be in good academic standing and not have earned an Incomplete (I) for any course preventing the required 22 credits needed to graduate.


The following will be graduation requirement exemptions for the Class of 2020:
      1. Sitting for the SAT exam
      2. The Constitution Exam

Advanced Placement Students

Students should continue to take practice exams and free response questions assigned by teachers.


Additional support is also available through Khan Academy.


Students can now attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These videos will cover AP topics and skills typically taught in the final weeks of each AP course.
These optional courses are mobile-friendly and available on-demand.


The course schedule is available online, along with information about what will be covered each week. All times on the schedule are Eastern Time.


Watch the videos at www.youtube.com/advancedplacement.


For the 2019–20 exam administration only, College Board is providing students with an online format to take Advanced Placement exams. Students will be able to take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. More information about the exam schedule will be shared when it is released by the College Board.

Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment

For those dual credit courses that are taught by a high school instructor: The online, alternative, or remote instruction that takes place must still meet the standards for college credit. So long as coursework is being completed in these courses, students should receive credit for that work.


Instructors must still provide coursework that coincides with the articulated curriculum for dual credit (SEE COURSE SYLLABI)


Students who have to take the following certification exams will receive a separate letter communication: First Aid; ASE, OSHA, and Food Handler. 

 

Instructors must complete the content outlined in the course syllabi that was articulated for dual credit.


Students unable to complete the dual credit course within the semester timeframe may be given the option to receive an “Incomplete,” with an individual plan to complete that work as soon as is possible, within the context of the credit granting higher education institution’s policies for completion of coursework with a focus on students who are expected to graduate in the spring of 2020.


Students enrolled in dual credit courses, must have earned a “C” or higher both semesters. If students’ grades fall as a result of not completing E-Learning assignments, students will not earn the college credit. 

Credit Recovery
Any student enrolled in a GradPoint course will have to complete a minimum of 50% of the modules before test session codes are activated (including Star Academy).

Teachers will not activate test session codes until students have completed 50% of the required modules.

Freshman students in Algebra I Repeat will have to complete 80% of the modules before test session codes are activated.
