Distance Learning Classroom Expectations and Norms of Conduct
General Guidelines When Working with Students in Virtually
Considerations of expectations/norms that need to be explicitly communicated and taught to Students
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.
Generally, there should be an expectation that students participate with their camera on. Accommodations can be addressed through an IEP meeting with Students with Disabilities or through a meeting for students with a 504 who are unwilling to participate with the camera on. For all other students who demonstrate an unwillingness to be visible on camera will be addressed with the student/parent.
What is the protocol for the following?
Should the camera be on when participating? Yes
When should the microphone be muted? Until called upon
When should the microphone be on? When call upon
When should the chat box be used? To ask questions
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.
