Bell Schedule

Distant Learning: Modified Schedule

Weekly Schedule

CHS will adopt a modified weekly schedule during the extended school closure. Online learning is, by nature, more independent and self-paced. We tried to balance the need for predictability and structure with the need for flexibility. In the schedule below, the designated time slot for each class period indicates when teachers will need to sync with students and/or when teachers will host virtual classes via Google Meet. It will take all of us to reiterate to students that school is still in session, just in a different space.

Although teachers have a three-hour window in which to sync with students in a given period, we certainly aren’t advocating for a three-hour virtual class. Teachers may decide to host a virtual class via Google Meets, they may choose what time within that window a class will meet. If teachers are syncing with students individually or in small groups, the goal is that teachers have a sufficient block of time to do so.

Class Work:

The amount of work students are expected to complete will not be equivalent to a traditional class setting. Teachers will be modifying class workload to meet the needs of students adjusting to distance learning. Advanced Placement classes, though, may have more assignments to prepare for the Advanced Placement exams. Teachers will also be expected to respond to students’ questions daily. Early college courses will resume online beginning March 30th, WCC instructors will contact students regarding expectations.

Attendance:

A student will be marked present when the student checks in with the teacher during the week. This could be by email, typing on a discussion board, or joining a virtual class. Teachers will be sharing with students via Google Classroom what form of check in there will be for each period.

Office Hours:

A student will be marked present when the student checks in with the teacher during the week. This could be by email, typing on a discussion board, or joining a virtual class. Teachers will be sharing with students via Google Classroom what form of check in there will be for each period.
