As has always been the mission of Summit Academy, we strive to provide a transformative educational experience. The coronavirus pandemic has us implementing new methods by which to provide instruction. These methods are unconventional for our teachers and students. So much of our interventions are built around teacher directed instruction of students in their areas of greatest need. Perfectly recreating “the Summit experience” without the interaction of students and teachers is impossible. However, the administration and faculty have been working diligently to provide you and your student with the best possible scenario in order to continue their Summit education throughout this period of distance learning.
As of April 6, we will transition to an online, synchronized learning format.
This approach will utilize our extensive access to the Google for Education suite, including Google Classroom and Google Meet. Our goal in this effort is to provide our teachers the opportunity to more actively facilitate the learning of their students and to provide direct instruction, albeit in an unconventional way.
The first step of the plan is to communicate to you the schedule for synchronized learning.
While highly modified, the schedule for each day will closely mirror a typical school day for students at Summit Academy - math and literacy instruction in the morning and science, social studies, and special areas in the afternoon. We will be utilizing Google Meet as a way of having face-to face instruction with teachers. Please look for direct communication from your student’s teachers regarding how to access Google Meet.
PreK and Kindergarten families: Mrs. Lape and Mrs. Towson will be contacting you directly regarding your student’s synchronized learning schedule.
