Virtual Learning Plan

Jemile Dragovic ShinnUncategorized

Thanks to our routine use of Portals and g-suite, our students are already well practiced in how to proceed. Just as students would check Portals each day for homework, now Portals will also include expanded work for our virtual Crossroads school day.

Please read below for details on how your child(ren) will be expected to engage in their classes during this time.

How classes will occur:

Classes will not meet at a scheduled time during virtual learning. Each weekday that your class would normally occur, by 8:30 am, teachers will post the work/lesson for that day on the Portal. The Portal will include all necessary instructions and links.

  • As indicated above, in order to accommodate families, classes will not meet synchronously. Instead, once the daily lesson is posted, students should engage and complete work prior to 8:30 am the following day. See more details under “How and When Assignments Should be Submitted.”
  • Please note: Students will continue to have the same classes daily.  The following classes will have daily lessons uploaded by 8:30 a.m.:
    • Monday: A, B, C, D, E, F, & G blocks
    • Tuesday: A, B, C, D, E, F, & G blocks
    • Wednesday: A, B, C, & D blocks
    • Thursday: E, F, G, & Enrichment (if applicable) blocks
    • Friday: A, B, C, D, E, F, & G blocks

How assignments will be posted:

  • All assignments will be posted on Portals, unless otherwise notified by the teacher.

How and when assignments should be submitted:

  • Assignments should be submitted via email or other g-suite medium (google docs, google forms, etc.) as explained by the teacher in the assignment instructions.
  • All assignments will be due by 8:30 am on the due date.
    • Daily class work will be expected by 8:30 am the day after it is received
    • Homework and longer assignments will be given a due date at the time they are
      assigned.
  • Please note that all class and grade-level late work policies will still apply.
    • If your student cannot engage in class for the day, or is sick when an assignment
      is due, please email attendance@crossroadscollegeprep.org per our usual
      procedure.
