Distance Learning Syllabus
AssignmentsStudents will log into Google Classroom daily to get assignments for the day or week. Students will access assignments online on Google Classroom, McGraw-Hill ConnectEd (Language Arts), and Savvas (Math-formally Pearson). Due dates are given in Google Classroom for each assignment. All platforms can be accessed via ClassLink. Other apps your child may need to use are Google Meet, IXL, and Flipgrid, which are all accessible via ClassLink.
Assessments will be assigned at the end of each Unit for English-Language Arts and Science, Topic for Math, and Chapter for Social Studies. District assessments will be assigned at each trimester. Quick Check quizzes will be used for informal assessments of daily instruction.

Live Sessions via Google Meet
Direct live instruction whole group sessions will be held every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:15 AM-1:20 PM. Wednesdays are Minimum Days, so direct live instruction sessions will be held from 8:15 AM-10:35 AM. If your child is absent from the direct instruction lesson, you must message me on Class Dojo or email. I will also be meeting with students in small groups throughout the week to provide additional support. For those that need to attend small group sessions, I will notify you in advance. Please refer to the schedule posted on the class "Welcome Page."
