What to Expect
Enhanced Distance Learning
With Enhanced Distance Learning, students will participate in their virtual classroom experience through a combination of live class meetings, small group learning sessions, and independent assignments. Access to learning content will be provided through Seesaw, Google Classroom, Zoom and/or Google Meet. Additionally, enhanced distance learning will also include daily attendance, a return of grades in middle school, and grade level appropriate daily live interaction for all students.
Students will connect with teachers daily through a combination of live class meetings, small group sessions, and/or feedback on assignments. Access to learning content, assignments, and feedback will be through Seesaw, Google Classroom, Zoom and/or Google Meet. While there is no mandated minimum amount of daily synchronous, or live, instruction, general consensus in the education community suggests between 1-3 hours per day, depending on the grade level.
Attendance will be taken daily in all stages. Students who do not participate will factor into schools' annual chronic absenteeism rate. Students who are absent from distance learning for more than three school days in a week will be referred for additional outreach and support.
