Improvements to Remote Learning for 2020-21

Based on the feedback families and educators shared in our May survey, we have planned several improvements to remote instruction, whether it’s in the virtual program, or as part of fully remote or hybrid instruction for all students. 

  • Strengthening teacher-student relationships through live daily instruction that requires less at-home adult assistance. 
  • Supporting families with consistent expectations for attendance, instruction, and grading across grade levels and schools. (Grading practices may vary at charter schools.)
  • Simplifying the at-home learning experience for students and families by using consistent learning management systems — Seesaw for K-5th grades and Schoology for 6-12th grades. Using the same systems districtwide will make it easy to see upcoming lessons and assignments, keep track of which assignments are completed, and turn in finished work for teacher feedback. (Charter families should check with their schools on which LMS systems they will use.)
  • Ensuring we reach all students by closing the gaps in internet and device access, providing tech support opportunities and tutorials in multiple languages.
  • Developing supports for Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and English Language Development that adapt more smoothly to shifts in learning scenarios.

Learning Management System Access and Support

We want to be sure that all parents/guardians have access to the Learning Management Systems (LMS) students and teachers will use throughout the school year for coursework, assignments, feedback and more. Below is more information about the two systems district-run schools will use this year. Charter families should check with their schools on which LMS systems they will use.

Grades K-5 - Seesaw

Grades 6-12 - Schoology
