GHS Trimester 2 poll- Mode of Instruction
THIS DOES NOT lock your child in for a trimester 2 commitment. THIS IS FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY.
Once we have this information, we will see what our needs are and will then send out a FINAL COMMITMENT survey.
For planning purposes only, we would like to know your preference for the 2nd trimester (December 14 - March 26). Please complete this form once for EACH student that lives in your household that attends Gilford High School. Please use the surveys sent by the other principals for children who attend the other schools. The other schools are asking for a firm commitment. This survey is due by noon on October 23. Thank you.
Remote instruction may not look the same as first trimester instruction. Based on our staffing, we do NOT believe that we have enough staff to fully support remote instruction with actual GHS teachers like we did for first trimester for the four core areas (English, math, social studies, science).
Instead, for the purpose of this poll, we are leaning towards offering an online learning platform that is aligned to state standards where students will be self-directed in their learning and they will have access to GHS teachers during certain blocks for support but NOT teacher-led instruction like first trimester. We will be able to offer the four core areas at the college prep level through this online learning platform. Support from case managers and paraprofessionals will still be offered for students that have an IEP or 504 plans.
We want to be as transparent as possible so that's why we are describing how second trimester remote instruction will look.
When making your decision, please consider the following in your decision making process.
- Credits and requirements
- Course availability for programs outside of GHS that may be full or waitlisting students
- Timeline of when courses are completed (i.e.- midway through trimester) and impact on timing of adding other classes
- Ensuring that your child stays on track to graduate
This poll was due by noon on October 23rd. Please contact the Director of School Counseling, Lori Jewett, at 524-7146 x221 or Principal Anthony Sperazzo at 524-7146 x252 if you have questions.
