REMOTE LEARNING POLICIES

  • Attendance Expectations: Instead of on a daily basis, teachers will track attendance based on weekly student participation and work completion (required assignments will be indicated on weekly Learning Board
  • Assignment Completion/Grading Expectations:  Grading will be based on completion of assignments as indicated on the weekly learning board. 
  • Time Dedication: All teachers will look at work completion on a weekly basis, allowing families and students to complete assignments throughout the day and week at times that work best for them.  Assigned classwork will average between 60-90 minutes a day, Monday thru Friday.  Students may manage their time and assignments in whichever manner best suits their needs. Optional homework/extension activities are to be utilized in addition to the daily suggested learning times. 
  • Classwork Postings:  Classwork will be posted once a week, for the entire week.  We will post classwork for the next week by Friday at 3 PM. 
  • Content: All 5th grade students will have the same learning intentions and assignments planned by the entire 5th Grade Team as directed by Dr. Mike.
