    • Full year courses which meet on BOTH A and B days, will meet four times per week for synchronous instruction, with the option to meet a fifth day for synchronous or asynchronous instruction when deemed necessary for curricular progress. As in a normal school year, students would be expected to complete additional independent work outside of class time. Instructional experiences for asynchronous work may include, but are not limited to, completing assignments/tasks (comparable to homework), viewing instructional videos, responding to posts from his/her teacher, conducting research, meeting with a teacher for additional supports face-to-face, engaging in online discussions with the classroom teacher or completion of project. If a teacher deems that it is necessary to run the fifth day as asynchronous instruction, students must still sign-in for attendance purposes, attendance procedures will be determined by the classroom teacher.
    • All other courses will meet synchronously according to a regular A/B schedule. It is expected that the majority of the required curricular work will be completed within these class periods each day, thereby limiting the amount of additional work and screen time.
    • Teachers will be asked to be mindful of cumulative screen time in their instructional practices. Teachers are encouraged to end a lesson at a natural ending point and not hold students for the duration of the period unless it is useful. Teachers may elect to use the last several minutes of a class to address individual questions, but may release students who may not find those questions helpful.


    Special Education Services

    • Students who receive Resource Room will receive 180 minutes weekly of synchronous instruction.
    • All special education Related Services will be provided synchronously as indicated by the frequency and duration as indicated on a student’s IEP.
