    Welcome back to school everyone.  I hope you had a good summer, or as good as you could make it under the circumstances.  I am looking forward to this school year.  It may be different than what you are used to, but the challenge will make you stronger.  No matter what class you have me for, I will do my best to insure that you receive the same types of skills and knowledge that you would in a regular classroom environment.  My goal is to make you successful in whatever you choose to do when you leave my classroom next summer.  Below you will find some information that will help you navigate the first part of this school year.  Make sure to read all the information, so that you are aware of schedules, procedures, and plans for the upcoming weeks.

    Distance Learning Classroom Norms

    Distance Learning Classroom Expectations and Norms of Conduct

    • 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 (what are they?)
    • 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 should be addressed with the student/parent.
    • What is the protocol for the following?
      • Should the camera be on when participating? Do all students have a camera on their personal device?
      • When should the microphone be muted?
      • When should the microphone be on?
      • When should the chat box be used?
      • How do they 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.

    Secondary Only

    • Students should be aware of the expectation of the attendance task for the days they are not with the teachers for synchronous instruction.
