“To Build Knowledge and Skills for Success Today and Tomorrow”

March 20, 2020 at 4:22 PM

K-12 Educational Plan (Online Learning)

Elementary School

 

Classroom Communication:  Teachers will use individual preferential communication modes they have used throughout the year.  Teachers need to be reaching out and be communicating with students/parents. If they aren't reaching them in one capacity, they are asked to try another. Teachers need to make sure kids/parents know the expectations for the day on what they have to complete.  If they don't have internet or a device- alternative activities are given to replace the online activities. As students run out of worksheets (as some did packets), teachers may screenshot or send an attachment of expected activities through their communication style with parents.  At this point, we are not requiring anything to be handed in until we return, but teachers are welcome to ask parents to screenshot some completed work to allow them to gauge for understanding and check for mastery. 

 

Sturgis Williams Middle School

 

Teachers will be sending out communication to families through email to keep everyone informed of daily activities. Students are required to check into their google classroom or Schoology courses daily, and complete the assigned work provided. Teachers will hold “office hours” (communicated to families in email) for parents or students to email or meet via Zoom with any questions.

 

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time.  We will continue looking at how to create a home-school balance and support families through communication and clear expectations.  Please contact us with any questions and/or concerns.

High School:

March 20, 2020 information

SBHS students and parents. Teachers have been working to prepare for the extended closure and have been facilitating distance learning to our students already. All teachers will be corresponding with students through each student’s meadeschools email. lt is essential that your student check their school email DAILY. It is the expectation that all assigned work will be handed in and graded as normal. Our priority is to keep students on target to receive credit for each class and more importantly on track for graduation. Work to be assigned and completed will be the essential learning items necessary to receive credit. Teachers are using different platforms to disseminate educational information. Those might include schoology, google classroom and zoom (which is like Facetime on a phone).   

 

Every teacher is a little different in their way of getting information to students. Teachers are communicating every Monday to start the week on the expectations, with due dates typically at the end of the week. Teachers may also communicate throughout the week as well. Some might even have lessons that are online or help sessions to attend live communication through zoom. If students need WIFI capabilities, we are told there are hot spots around the area and they can even go to the school parking lots to use the WIFI as well, Please ask your students what they are doing and take a look at how they are receiving their education. Our main means of communication will be our students and staff school’s email. If you have specific class questions, please ask your specific teacher through email.
