● Student learning that aligns with District 303 curriculum will be delivered through a District supported Learning Management System (LMS) such as Google Classroom, Schoology, Seesaw, or email.
● In an effort to respond to students and their academic needs, staff members will be available between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm.
● Teachers will collaborate with their course and grade-level teams to develop activities and tasks that are aligned with the curriculum and instructional units throughout the duration of remote learning.
● Assessments will be based upon a student’s progression of skills and abilities.
● During remote learning days, District 303 will continue to use the letter grade structure for students in grades 6-12 throughout the remainder of the semester.
● Remote learning days count as student attendance days. On Monday mornings, students in grades 6-12 will receive a brief survey they are expected to complete by noon that records their intended participation in learning for that week and their attendance.
The chart shows the number of suggested minutes students are expected to be engaged in learning each day. The minutes include time with teachers as well as individual work at home. The times do not include elementary specials. English Learner services, special education, and/or related service minutes may be provided outside the suggested time expectations based on individual student need(s).
As teachers plan remote learning experiences for students, the delivery method or means by which students will engage with the content or learning can vary. Teachers may plan asynchronous learning or synchronous learning experiences.
Students learn content, ask questions, and practice at different times and locations. Examples of asynchronous learning in a remote setting are:
Students learn at the same time by attending scheduled meetings are lessons. Examples of synchronous learning in a remote setting are:
The times below are for synchronous learning only, meaning that this schedule only needs to be used when teachers plan for a scheduled learning with the whole class. A is the first day, B it the second day, etc. These scheduled times are only for all group virtual meetings. Schools will inform students ahead of time as to which days are A and B.
During remote learning days, District 303 will continue to use the letter grade structure for students in grades 6-12 throughout the remainder of the semester.
