    • Wednesday will be a Full Remote day for all students. Wednesday will include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences. There will be the ability to switch the remote day of Wednesday, to full in person instruction when deemed appropriate.
      • Students will meet with their classroom teacher for two 45-minute blocks. Full class meetings may include but are not limited to an ELA block, a math block, a social studies/science block or any other activity deemed necessary by the classroom teacher.
      • In addition to synchronous full class meetings, synchronous small group instruction will be scheduled daily between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 am. These groups will be scheduled by individual classroom teachers and students will be invited to attend. Small group instruction will not exceed 6 students and will run for 30-minutes per group session.  Teachers will run (4) small group instruction sessions each day and students will be notified as to which session they should attend. 
      • The classroom teachers will schedule small group instruction on Wednesday. The classroom teacher will determine the times for each group and communicate the schedule on TEAMS. However, depending on the individual academic supports needed, some students will be required to attend more frequently.
      • Small group instruction would focus on reading, writing and math. An example of small group instruction may include, but is not limited to, guided reading, watching and discussing a video, a follow-up mini-lesson on a specific topic, or have students perform/engage in an activity or a specific task. Small group instruction is another opportunity for teachers to assess and clearly identify what students have already learned or need additional support in.
      • Additional instructional experience (asynchronous) work will be posted each day for students to complete. These additional instructional experiences may include, but are not limited to, completing online tasks, viewing instructional videos, responding to posts from his/her teacher, conducting research, engaging in online discussions with the classroom teacher or completion of projects.
