frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is Distance Instruction?

Distance instruction is instruction that can occur at any location.

For in Person instruction, what are the differences between the A and B groups?

Students in both groups get the same amount of time in class and in a distance environment. The only difference is the days of the week that they attend in person. Students who are not in person will meet virtually with their teacher. Students are required to attend school every day.

What if I do not want my child to physically go to school when the district provides in person instruction??

Senate Bill 98 expressly states the criteria that full time distance instruction may be granted. A request must be submitted by the parent or guardian. Once a commitment is made to full time distance instruction, the student must remain in the program for the duration of the grading period (trimester or semester). A new request must be submitted for each grading period .

Does my child have to attend and participate every day?

Attendance will be taken every day for all students, both in class and in a distance environment.

What is Synchronous Learning?

Synchronous learning is the kind of learning that happens in real time. This means that you, your classmates, and your instructor interact in a specific virtual place, through a specific online medium, at a specific time. In other words, it’s not exactly anywhere, anyhow, anytime. Methods of synchronous online learning include video conferencing, teleconferencing, live chatting, and live-streaming lectures.

What is Asynchronous Learning?

Asynchronous learning happens on your schedule. While your course of study, instructor or degree program will provide materials for reading, lectures for viewing, assignments for completing, and exams for evaluation, you have the ability to access and satisfy these requirements within a flexible time frame. Methods of asynchronous online learning include self-guided lesson modules, streaming video content, virtual libraries, posted lecture notes, and exchanges across discussion boards or social media platforms.

Linewize & Classwize

Linewize is a remote content filtering tool to help keep student’s cyber-safe! It provides a filter solution for students logged on a school district account. The filter may be modified by the teacher for subjects being studied. Linewize is enabled at any time a student is logged into their school account. Classwize gives control back to teachers with screen and content visibility. Classwize is an optional tool available to teachers that will allow them to view all student screens in Google Classroom. Teachers will have some control over student screens. For instance, they could push a website, quiz, video, etc. that will open on the student’s screen. Classwize virtually replicates the ability a teacher would have if students were present in the classroom. Classwize is only enabled Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
