Middle school Distance Learning Orientation

August 5, 2020 – August 7, 2020 all-day
  • Middle school students and families will participate in Welcome to Online Learning: a Distance Learning Orientation course in conjunction with the summer reading assignments and review of previously learned curriculum.
    • Families begin the school year with a Welcome to Online Learning course. The course provides an overview of each curriculum area so students and Learning Coaches can familiarize themselves with the philosophy behind the curriculum methodology and overall course organization. The lessons are interactive and include actual animations or graphics that are used in the courses themselves. Students are introduced to the online tools they will use during their middle school experience, including the Canvas Learning Management System that delivers course assignments. By the end of the course, students and families will be fully prepared to participate in blended or remote learning.
