        Distance Teaching and Learning Classroom Expectations

    Students will participate in a variety of activities in an integrated science curriculum of earth, physical, and life sciences.

    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 clasroom 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.

    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 uness they have received prior permission to do so from teacher or authorized District official.

    To the extent possible, parents should allow the student to work with the instructor 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 into their Google Meet about 10 minutes before the meeting starts.

    Students microphone should be on mute  but their camera should be turned on.

    The link for Google Meet is on the classroom header for your class period and will be the same for every class meeting.
