High school virtual schedules seek to provide as much similarity with in-person schedules and routines as possible in order to ease the eventual transition back to in-person instruction. Students will continue to attend classes on a rotating odd/even schedule with an academic enrichment period built into the schedule to allow students the opportunity to ask for individualized help, attend virtual club meetings, and participate in small-group advisory or seminar sessions.
Each class period will be a blend of synchronous and asynchronous instruction with synchronous time accounting for approximately 30 minutes and teachers being available during the asynchronous time. (There may be exceptions to this criteria, i.e. assessments, essay writing, etc. Likewise, there may be exceptions where lessons last longer than 30 minutes.) Instruction will occur through the Canvas learning management system. The remaining class time will allow students independent study and work time as well as access to small-group or individualized time with their teacher. As with in-person learning, students are expected to attend their virtual class meeting times; however, each lesson will be recorded and uploaded to the classroom teacher’s Canvas page so that students can revisit that content if needed and to account for necessary absences. As per Virginia Department of Education guidelines, student attendance will be taken based on task completion (homework, classwork, etc.) and not by simply logging on to the virtual class meeting. Student participation in coursework and coursework completion will determine student attendance.
Below is a sample of how a high school schedule might look (school-specific iterations will be communicated by the principal).
*Students will have opportunities to participate in small-group advisories, receive additional help from teachers, meet with school counselors or administrators, or participate in virtual club meetings.
**Check-in/out time for teachers to monitor student progress and needs, as well as specified time for parents and teachers to meet to discuss student progress. Other student meetings as needed.
