Virtual Learning

Expectations for the Virtual Classroom

  •  Accountability Standards for Students In the Virtual & Hybrid Instructional Environment 

    While learning in the virtual world is new for many of us, the classroom is not. Think of the virtual classroom as you do the traditional classroom and conduct yourself accordingly:

     

    • Behavioral standards, as outlined in the Code of Conduct, are in effect and will be enforced through coordination with administration. For example, lateness, inconsistent attendance, general mischief, plagiarism and disrespect will have consequences.
    • You are expected to be visible on camera when utilizing Microsoft TEAMS (Cameras on, Faces showing).
    • Your failure to acknowledge random questioning during a class session can qualify as a CUT and will be addressed accordingly.
    • Grades will be reflective of demonstrated levels of cooperation, productivity and content mastery.
    • Grades will be earned based on attainment of documented performance standards on a variety of assessments.
    • You are strongly encouraged to utilize Extra Help Sessions as needed.

    Expectations and Accountability Standards for Students in Virtual/ Hybrid Classroom

    • Student behavioral expectations, when participating through a virtual format, are to be consistent with traditional classroom guidelines.

    • Hallway passage between classes must honor social distancing guidelines.

    • When students are utilizing Microsoft TEAMS, they need to have the CAMERA ON. If legitimate technical difficulties exist, student(s) should be called upon as frequently as possible. Student failure to acknowledge random questioning can qualify as a CUT and should be addressed accordingly. Alternate methods to monitor the presence of students attending in a virtual format can be considered through consultation with a member of the administrative team.

    • Students should be informed of the steps to alter backgrounds within the TEAMS application. Students and teachers are encouraged to utilize the alternate background function in Microsoft TEAMS as necessary. Inappropriate backgrounds are to be removed as requested by the teacher

    • Behavioral standards, as outlined in the Code of Conduct, are in effect and will be enforced through coordination with administration. For example, lateness, inconsistent attendance, general mischief, plagiarism and disrespect will have consequences.

    • Student grades will be reflective of demonstrated levels of cooperation, productivity and mastery.
