High School Distance Learning Model for Classes beginning September 8th-October 2nd
High School students will have four classes per day Monday – Thursday
Teachers will have office hours on Fridays for students to get extra help on schoolwork, hold advisory classes that will meet periodically, and work with students who have not completed work from the Spring.
Classes will be taught live and instructional components will be recorded for students who miss class to watch at a later time. Students are expected to attend virtually and will be trained the week of September 1st regarding what will be expected of them. Students will also be checked out a Chromebook that week.
We plan on having a supervised computer lab available for student use to complete their online work if needed This option will be available by appointment only. Appointments to use the computer lab will be arranged through the school office.
The schedule linked below is for 1st quarter. We have developed a yearly schedule that takes into consideration all of the classes students will need to stay on track for graduation. Using this 4x4 block schedule, it will be possible for students to earn 2 credits per quarter. Each class / quarter carries with it the opportunity to earn .5 credit. Students who take 4 classes / quarter will earn 8 credits by the end of the year.
The school counselor will be placing students into their respective courses the week of September 1st in preparation for our September 8th start date.
