Online Work & Expectations

  • Classes will take place on Microsoft Teams. Teachers will go over online class expectations including camera and audio use with students.  In these classes teachers will provide instruction as well as guided practice, collaborative work time, and independant practice.  

    Assignments will continue to be assigned through Schoology.

    Work Load

    Students should expect 2-3 assignments in each class per week (depending on the complexity of the course). So, if there is a large application assignment, maybe less... if there are smaller quizzes and tasks, maybe a bit more.

    As we navigate our current circumstances, know that we are focused on providing meaningful learning experiences in each content area.  Lessons are meant to engage students in authentic lessons that push their thinking towards proficiency in state standards.

    No Blue/Gray Cohorts

    There are no Blue or Gray Cohorts during full Remote Learning. Class sizes will reflect the larger number of students as the two cohorts rejoin. 


    Attendance will be based on student attendance in each Microsoft Teams Meeting.  Students that do not attend their classes will be marked absent.  We will continue to follow state attendance procedures.  If you need to excuse your student due to illness or another reason please call the school to excuse them from remote learning for that day.
