Support for Online Learners
- We believe that families are doing their best to take care of their children during this difficult time.
- We commit to providing at-home learning opportunities and resources for our students to support their education while our schools are closed.
- We recognize that there are unique circumstances in every home that may impact a student’s ability to learn during this challenging situation.
- We will be patient and support all of our students to the best of our ability. In turn, we ask for your patience with our teachers and staff who are doing their absolute best to take care of our students in the midst of their own challenges during this pandemic.
Virtual at-home learning relies on the use of traditional curriculum materials and resources delivered through the technology tools that are chosen to facilitate or enhance the learning process. As Clarkston Community Schools considers meaningful student engagement through virtual means, we must think about how to design learning experiences that effectively support the introduction of and interaction with our standard curriculum materials when students are not present in the classroom.
Meaningful engagement through virtual means requires thoughtful consideration of the communication process: When and through what method will students and their significant adults be informed of online class time, lesson content, lesson activities, and expectations for the demonstration of student demonstration?
It is up to each individual classroom teacher, in consultation with their grade or department teammates when appropriate, to make the decisions about which virtual platform will best serve the needs of their students.
