Also, here are answers to some general questions we have received:
How will students be graded?
Assignments that are not able to be emailed will need to be stored in a folder. Students will submit all classwork completed at home upon their return. Some assignments will be emailed back to teachers using Google Classroom. In addition, students are assessed using Freckle and ALEKS. Please note that assignments are teacher-led and may vary from grade level to grade level. Grades will continue to be recorded in TeacherEase.
Are students responsible for their computers?
Yes, students have been assigned computers and will need to return them when remote learning has completed. Students will also still need to abide by the acceptable use policy in regard to computer use. Teachers are still able to see if students are viewing inappropriate websites or material using the school computer.
Who do I contact if I have questions or issues that a teacher is unable to answer?
- Issues with Grade 1-5 Academics – Maxine Dennison
- Issues with Grade 6-8 Academics – Jonathan Price
- Technology Issues 1-8 – Linda Mullen
- General Concerns 1-8 – Stan Bobowski
How will teachers teach?
Teachers will teach using prerecorded videos or teach in real time depending on grade level. If teachers prerecord videos, the links will be sent to students for viewing. Teachers will be available for questions during the designated times in the schedules that have been provided. The Monday–Friday schedule is the same throughout the entire week. Daily lessons and assignments will be sent to students along with a weekly lesson plan.
