COVID-19 INSTRUCTIONAL PLANS

It is impossible to replace the high quality instruction that our students receive in our classrooms with online work developed in a short period of time.  As we move toward a period of time when we may not be able to physically attend class, we will use online assignments, when developmentally appropriate, to maintain current skill levels.  Assignments will be minimal and will be monitored by teachers and feedback will be provided.  
 
We also believe that, as a community, it is important to follow that guidance of our leaders and only attend essential events.  We believe that this presents us with a unique opportunity to slow down the pace of our lives and spend time with our families.  
 
In general, we recommend that parents limit the screen time for their children.  There is evidence that more than two-hours per day of screen time can negatively impact your child's motivation, behavior and mood.  Screen time includes television.

Learning Plan for 8-12

WEEK 1
This will be treated as the last week of third nine weeks.  Students at the high school will finish all missing assignments or any extra credit.  There will be no new instruction unless it is required for College Credit Plus course (s).
 
WEEK 2
Teachers will provide 2-3 assignments.  We are aware that not all students have access to the internet at home.  The goal of these assignments should be to supplement the learning that occured prior to break.  These assignments should be something that can be accomplished independently and should not take more than one hour each on average.  
 
WEEK 3 
We will consider this week Spring Break.  There will be no new assignments unless it is required for College Credit Plus course(s). 

Week one: This will be treated as the last week of the nine weeks.
Students at the high school will finish all missing assignments or any
extra credit and there will be no new instruction unless it is required for
a college course. Our students in elementary through seventh grade
have already received a letter about what they can be working on. If you
have other ideas for your students you will need to discuss it with your
building principal.
Week two: During this week you can provide 2-3 assignments for high
school students. Keep in mind not all students have internet access.
Our goal would be for them not to receive busy work, but assignments
that can supplement what you are working on. These assignments
should also be something they can accomplish on their own and not take
more than one hour on average.

Our main concern, at this point, is for our students and staff members.  We do not want to cause unneeded stress at at a time when there are so many unanswered questions and some panic.  
 
We know that our plan differs from things you may be hearing from other districts throughout Ohio.  However, we don't aim to be like other districts in Ohio.  We aim to #bebetter.   We want to make sure that our students and their families still have the opportunity to enjoy themselves.  We are pledging to do our best to make this happen.  
 
We appreciate your support.  Be safe, be kind and always #bebetter.
