  • Distance Teaching and Learning Classroom Expectations

     

    General Expectations

    · Students should not share their login information, meeting links, or passwords with others.

    · To the extent possible, students should participate in virtual instruction from a quiet and neutral area that is free of distractions.

    · School and classroom rules apply to the virtual instruction environment.

    · It is recommended that students review the District Technology Acceptable/ Responsible Use Policy regarding expectations for behavior while conducting themselves online and on District devices. [Click here to Review the CVUSD Responsible Use Policy.]

    · Students should dress appropriately for virtual instruction sessions.

    · Students who use inappropriate language, share inappropriate images, or in any way behave inappropriately on a video conference will be subject to appropriate discipline.

    Students should not conduct audio or video recordings or take screen shots of virtual class meetings or activities unless they have received prior permission to do so from a teacher or authorized District official.

    · To the extent possible, parents should allow the student to work with the instructor or provider in a quiet, private space. However, to the extent a student requires adult support to participate in virtual instruction/services, a parent or guardian may be specifically asked by the instructor or service provider to provide such support.

    · Once the virtual instruction session or meeting is over, students should be sure to close out of the meeting platform entirely. Students should also ensure that cameras are covered and that microphones are turned off to avoid inadvertent transmission following the meeting.

    Virtual Meetings

    Students should begin to log in to sessions before the class start time.

    Reqiurements for virtual meetings, include maintaining a continuous visual of student, muting at the begining of class, and using the hand raise icon for a question

    Meeting times are set by the bell schedule and students should be ready to start as determined by designated period start time.

    If a student is absent from a class meeting it will be counted as an absence. The student may then seek me out during office hours to make up assignments or get information when appropriate.

    Communications / Academics

    The assignments will be posted online along with the due dates in Google Classroom, please see the links on my class page, and as always, ENTER THROUGH YOUR CLASSLINK PAGE. All my classes should become familiar with how to use Google Classroom, since students will check for assignments and due dates for those assignments on their respective class page in Google. Because the course meets online, it is important that students budget their time and are aware of participation and assignment due dates. Students in online courses must take a greater responsibility for the progress of their learning. My classes are listed below, along with their respective join codes.
