Franklin High School
April 6th - 10th
April 6-10th Distance Learning Weekly Calendar
Our hope by running a schedule will provide students and staff set opportunities to have a routine, engage with course work and continue social connection through academic conversation.
Our proposed schedule will provide structure yet also flexibility to accommodate the unique situation we are in with our extended building closure.
Our hope is to reduce anxiety associated with any new experience, and provide a structure by which students, staff, and parents can operate on one accord.
Please Note: This schedule is ONLY specific to Franklin HS for next week as we move forward to best support our students and staff through distance learning. We anticipate the district providing a new schedule in the upcoming week for April 13 and beyond.
April 6 - 10th
Next week as a school we will focus on the following:
1. Checking in with kids - How are they doing, do they have technology, are they using their Gmail account, are there other needs that they have?
2. Allowing teachers more time to plan, practice using technology and getting set up.
3. Provide if necessary any Quarter 3 clean up opportunities for students. Possibly provide other chances for students to demonstrate their ability from content previously taught.
4. Provide supplemental learning opportunities, allowing students to practice and use technology and become more comfortable with distance learning.
What to Expect:
Teachers will provide both asynchronous (independent) and synchronous (collective) instruction and learning opportunities.
Only during the assigned class periods will teachers host synchronous class sessions in Google Meets.
We want to prevent students from being asked by teachers to be a part of different meetings/sessions, where content is being presented, that could be at the same time. Students are asked to follow the schedule as they would in a normal school setting.
Teachers are also NOT required to host Google Meets (online sessions) during those periods, if they do they will host during these times for these periods.
Teachers/Staff may also hold office hour check-in sessions with students using Google Meets on Friday Tutorial and after 11:20am. Students may be asked to be invited to other sessions, and therefore students will make the choice of where to attend; similar to how tutorials and after school works.
We are not taking official attendance, but will keep notes on which students we are not engaging in an effort to check in them and their well being.
Attendance to all sessions is highly encouraged to continue learning and connection to peers and staff for students.
Students are expected to follow the guidelines found in the Franklin High School Distance Learning Behavior Expectations
During tutorial times, students could be:
Working on teacher assigned assignments/projects
Participating in a virtual check-ins with a teacher or staff member
Virtually attending office hours with teachers
Collaborate with classmates on classwork virtually
