We're all in this together! Here are some resources for you to support your staff and some considerations for Distance Learning:

  • Device management: deploying devices to students, tech assistance for students

  • Communication: up to date parent/guardian contact info; how to check in with families

  • Attendance: google form, teachers track participation, phone check in, students turn in work

  • Determine expectations: Sample Essential Agreement - sample from a K-12 district on expectations for teaching and learning; Expectations of Students & Teachers - sample of norms adapted from a school in Singapore; Sample Guidance document for staff and families (includes how paper packets are being handled)

  • Scheduling: avoid students being pulled in multiple directions; sample schedule
