• 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 be logged on and ready to learn by the start of each period. In order to ensure punctuality, students should begin to login five minutes before class begins. 

    Students should have their camera ON and and their microphones MUTED at the beginning of each class. 

    At the beginning of each class session, students will be informed of the plan for the day, including planned time for direct instruction, class discussion, guided practice, and independent work time.

    If a student is absent, they will need to obtain the notes, assignments, and other materials that were presented in the class that was missed. These materials will be available on this website (under the appropriate class - 7th Grade World History, 7th Grade AVID, or 8th Grade AVID) as well as on Google Classroom. Please see your class page for the class calendar and all learning materials (notes, assignments, etc.).



    Student Expectations

    In addition to adhering to the Distance Learning Expectations outlined above, students will be expected put forth their best effort at all times! Now, more than ever, your education will be what YOU put into it. 



    Assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. In addition, all assignments will be available on this website. *Note: Due to copyright restrictions, occasionally I will not be able to post assignments on this website as it is visible to the public. However, these assignments will still be posted to Google Classroom. 



    Assessments will take place at the end of each unit. In most cases, an assessment will be given every two to three weeks. 



    Students will receive feedback on assignments during class sessions via Google Meet, as well as written feedback via private comments in Google Classroom. For feedback that pertains to the whole class, comments will be made public. In addition, students and parents/guardians will have access to grades via Aeries. Grades will be updated continuously throughout the course of the semester. Feedback turnaround time will depend upon the length, depth, and breadth of each assignment. For example, for assessments containing extensive essay questions, feedback time will be one to two weeks. For less involved assignments, feedback will be given within one to two days. During class meetings and discussions, feedback will take place in real time. 



    Students and parents/guardians should both have a log in to Aeries. This will enable you to view your (or your student's) grade at any given point in time.
