High School 9-12 Distance Learning Plan

  • High School students, grades 9-12, will access assignments and lessons using Schoology. 

    Structure:

    We feel it is important that students have some structure even through distance learning. Below is our schedule. Please note that classes will meet at designated times. High school teachers are responsible for many students in their courses and having a specific meeting time for each class allows students and teachers the opportunity to connect in real time. This allows teachers to assess student learning, answer questions, and provide valuable feedback to students. Teachers will be using software that will allow them to record sessions. We are encouraging teachers to keep lectures and lessons shorter to allow time for students to process learning with each other and the teacher, and to allow students individual work time.

    Flexibility:

    We plan on starting slowly as we implement the new model for teaching. We are anticipating some students will struggle with not having quality internet in their home or have other extenuating circumstances affecting their ability to learn from home. Teachers are anticipating and planning for some of these situations. It is extremely important your child communicates directly with their teachers about any issues they are encountering so adjustments can be made regarding attendance and learning. Flexibility will be given to students who need it. Communication will be the key to work through any issues.

    Student Expectations:

    Attendance will be taken.  If your student will miss class due to illness, contact the attendance line and report this absence.  Our expectation is that students report to class during the scheduled time. Keep in mind that if flexibility is needed, students need to communicate this with their teachers.  Teachers will be assigning and grading the work which will be reflected on their transcript. 

    Extra Support from Teachers:

    Teachers will be available before and after the given structured times as noted on the attached schedule. These time slots are for students and/or small groups to get extra academic support from teachers. Students will schedule these times with their teacher.

    Technology Issues:

    If your child’s chromebook is not working properly, they should contact our tech department at tsupport@alexschools.org   Students will be able to make appointments to drop off their chromebook for repair in the AAHS office.

    Extracurricular Activities and AAHS Events:

    We will not have any extra curricular activities or host any events through May 1st. We will be taking direction from the local and state health agencies on recommendations for large gatherings once we are back in school. I understand that prom, athletics, concerts and just being able to socialize is extremely important to our students. I especially feel for our senior students!

    Extra Support:

    Please remember our counselors, social workers and administrators are here to support you and your child. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if your child is struggling with tech issues, academics or having social/emotional concerns.

    Office Hours:

    Our AAHS office will be closed to walk-ins from March 30th to April 10th.  We will communicate further office hours with you closer to April 13th. Students and/or parents may drop off chromebooks for repair or pick up items by appointment. Appointments can be made by calling 762-2142.
