What will virtual instruction look like and how will it be different from the NTI provided last spring?
Students choosing at-home instruction will not be completing paper packets.
Every effort will be made to create a virtual learning environment that reflects the in-person learning experience. Teachers will use a Zoom-like platform called Microsoft Teams. Teams has built-in meeting features that will allow the teacher to hold classroom meetings, collaborate on virtual whiteboards, and share documents. It also serves as a hub for recordings of collaborative instruction, pre-recorded instructional segments, access to supplemental programs, assignments, files, notes, and much more.
Students participating in at-home virtual instruction will be expected to be engaged on the computer each day.
If I chose virtual instruction for my student, will a computer be provided?
1:1 technology is being provided by the district to all students in 4th-12th grade.
Other available technology is being reassigned for use by students in Kindergarten-3rd grade and will be distributed based on need.
If I choose virtual (at-home) instruction for my child, will they be able to participate in athletics at school?
Yes. Students who choose at-home instruction can still participate athletics.
