Continuity of Learning – Middle School

Jump to: Overview | A Week | B Week

The continuity of learning plan for middle school students focuses on delivering learning objectives in a variety of ways, leveraging the tools and resources that students and families have available and accounting for the supports they require. It does not seek to replicate the classroom experience as courses and content will not be taught live at a certain time on a particular day. Rather, teachers provide course or grade-specific work that can be completed independently, guide students through a variety of learning experiences, and provide opportunities for students to ask questions and engage with the teacher remotely during scheduled online sessions.

Grading Procedures for Final Grades

A typical week for a middle school student:

On Monday mornings, students will log into Canvas and receive their weekly assignments for all instructional areas.

Throughout the remainder of the week, students will have opportunities for live virtual check-ins with teachers.

The majority of each day will be designated as time for students to complete assignments.

Assignments will be turned in for feedback on Fridays.

Teachers will communicate their specific schedules to students and families. The HCPSS distance learning model for secondary students will consist of two components:

90 minutes to two hours of learning activities per course for students to complete independently

Weekly virtual class check-ins via Google Meet.

A- Week, beginning April 20

Distance learning schedules will alternate between A- and B-weeks. Weekly assignments will be posted each Monday by 9:15 a.m. and will be due on Friday by 10 a.m. Teachers will select one of two possible Google Meet check-in times for each class, and will communicate specific schedules to students and parents. Morning check-ins will begin at either 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. Afternoon check-ins will begin at either 1 p.m. or 2 p.m.
