Attendance letters and SART contracts will be done during Virtual Learning so please watch your child’s work completion and participation.  Participation and attendance refers to the regular interaction in the academic process on the part of the student.

GRADING

Students will be graded on work completed in Edgenuity. Please see your teacher's syllabus for grading scales, when assignments are due and how to communicate your questions and concerns with them. 

STUDENT BEHAVIOR

Teachers will monitor for any inappropriate online behavior by a student or other participant. This includes anyone who may be talking or walking around the area using inappropriate language, gestures, walking around in inappropriate clothing, etc. Teachers will report inappropriate actions by students or other participants to administration. School discipline procedures do apply when using district devices and when communicating with teachers and students via email, Google Classroom, Zoom or Google Meets. If concerns are reported by a teacher an administrator will contact parents.

DISTRICT ASSESSMENTS

  • District assessments will not occur until students return to campus with the exception of the i-Ready diagnostic. Students will need to take this diagnostic assessment on their own without any assistance. i-Ready is NOT graded. It is used as a diagnostic tool. Individual lessons are aligned to students’ abilities. If a student receives assistance their lessons may then be too difficult, which defeats the purpose of the program.  Please have your child complete their diagnostic independently.
