Teachers are working hard to ensure the same high quality instruction that's delivered for in-person classes is being delivered for distance learning classes. While you can expect for teachers to use a variety of strategies for teaching virtually, you can expect most lessons to take place via Google Classroom and Zoom.
Google Classroom - Scholars will have a unique virtual "Google Classroom" for each class they are taking. They will receive their Google Classroom codes from their teachers, and they will use those codes to "join" the class for the remainder of the year. Through their class' Google Classroom, scholars can communicate with their teacher and classmates, view their assignments, and submit their work. As the parent or guardian, you are able to join each of your scholar's Google Classrooms. Many scholars will already be familiar with how to use Google Classroom; however, we will share instructions with you and your scholars on how to use the platform. For more information about Google Classroom, please see this this resource: https://docs.google.com/document/d/148jp2dXTjPBS1xfI3jA8ZqiVNadtvspZpOqFAfFDUxo/edit?usp=sharing.
Zoom - Most classes will hold synchronous instruction via Zoom. Teachers will begin each class by taking attendance based on which scholars are present on the Zoom call. Instruction will continue throughout the call, with direct content facilitation, shared discussions, and breakout rooms. We will share instructions with you and your scholars on how to use Zoom.
