Importance of Student Engagement
It is very important for you to engage daily and to complete assigned work to keep skills practice up and engage in relevant content for future learning settings.
Please stay connected and will we support you in making progress--academically, socially, and emotionally. We recognize the value of staying socially connected. Teachers are encouraged to build in different opportunities for you to engage with each other in non-academic ways, as a means of continuing to foster positive relationships.

Expectations for Feedback
Teachers and staff members will give feedback in a variety of ways. At times, you will receive individualized feedback regarding work. There are also times when you will receive small or large group feedback. All feedback is intended to support student learning.
- Our traditional grading scale applies. Please refer to the grading scale in the Student Handbook.
- Please communicate to your teacher how the work is going relative to workload and stress. It is important to allow us to adjust on the feedback we hear as we do this work.
- Our staff is focusing on how students can be successful with engagement during this period and providing feedback around the intended learning. We do want to support students in continued acquisition of skills that will support future ready citizens: critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
When your teacher is absent, we still take attendance and have Zoom meetings!
In the event that your teacher is absent, attendance is still required and will be taken by the substitute teacher that day. If a student does not log into the “substitute's Zoom,” you will be marked absent. The substitute will post a new announcement for the day on the teacher’s module in Canvas before class time. They will introduce themselves and include the “new Substitute Zoom ID and passcode” for class that day. When the announcement is posted, the student will receive an email to their school account letting them know they have a new announcement to read.
