Summer School 2020

summer school overview

Summer School Students and Parents,

We hope you and your family are well and adjusting to life in our stay-at-home environment. In light of the continued school closures and our desire to keep students and staff safe and healthy, we are committed to ensuring that social distancing practices continue while still providing meaningful educational opportunities for students. For this reason, we will continue to limit exposure and reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 by offering summer school classes through a distance learning approach.  Please read below to learn how classes will be conducted and to better understand the teaching and learning expectations for summer school.

 

How Summer School Will Be Different In 2020

In order to facilitate the highest quality instruction, summer school classes will be hosted on the Canvas learning management system and taught entirely through virtual classrooms using current distance learning instructional practices or online instruction. Canvas is taking the place of SchoolLoop and will serve as the hub for assignments, communication, grades, and class meetings.

 

You can get to Canvas by using your computer or downloading the student app on your phone or tablet. The login information is the same as your Google/Microsoft credentials.

Student Expectations/Commitments

Summer school is a stand-alone educational term that, because of its condensed nature, is accelerated and requires work outside of the scheduled instructional time allotted to each class period. We recognize that the absence of all face-to-face interaction within the traditional classroom will make this summer term unique as well as challenging. However, we are confident that our talented teachers and students can rise to this challenge and create authentic and innovative learning experiences that can equal or surpass previous summer school experiences.

 

This model will have expectations of students that were not mandated during the Distance Learning model during our initial school closure. These expectations are listed below so students and parents understand the shift in expectations and responsibilities. 

  • Students will be expected to attend class online daily during the block designated for the course in which they are enrolled.
  • Students who are not in class during either of the first two days of class may be dropped from the class so that another student can be enrolled.
  • Students will be expected to actively participate with teachers and peers in online discussions and collaborations. 
  • Students will be expected to complete all assignments to the best of his/her ability.
  • Students will be expected to commit to doing work outside of the assigned instructional time knowing that the summer term is accelerated.
  • Students will be expected to ask teachers for assistance and/or clarification as needed.
  • Students will be expected to have consistent access to a technological device and WiFi. If a student does not have access to these items, the District is committed to providing these resources for students. 

 

Schedule and Dates

Summer school classes will be held Monday-Friday beginning on Thursday, May 28, and ending on Friday, June 26, according to the schedule below. Teachers and students will be required to meet online each scheduled day for the purposes of teaching and learning.
