Plan C Remote Learning
On Monday, Henderson County Public Schools announced its plan to “Return to Learn” Plan C – a fully remote learning model – for the first 6 weeks of the 2020-2021 school year. Will this look different from remote learning in the Spring?
Unlike the emergency remote learning during the school closure, the robust remote learning through Plan C will consist of live, virtual whole class sessions teaching new content with grades and assessments, instead of primarily reviewing previously learned material.
Remote learning will occur from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m., with the afternoons designated for individual or small-group support (for academics, counseling, college and career planning, Exceptional Children, Academically or Intellectually Gifted, English Language Learners, etc.).
Daily attendance will be taken and student grading expectations will look similar to in-person expectations.
How will attendance work?
Attendance will be recorded based on students’ physical attendance of live virtual class sessions, as well as completion of coursework and assignments. Students unable to attend live class sessions will access the recorded session in Google Classroom and demonstrate their attendance and attention through completion of their assignments and coursework within the timeframes expected.
Students and families will be able to schedule individual on-campus teacher feedback or tutoring sessions by appointment. Also new this year, the district’s Instructional Technology department is creating enhanced resources for parents and guardians who are assisting children with remote learning at home. Be on the lookout for instructional videos and more!
With the goal and expectation to resume face-to-face learning as soon as is safely possible, the current plan will be continuously evaluated and refined based on public health in our community.
District leaders, school administrators, and the ReEntry Task Force continue to collaborate to bring families details on classroom schedules, remote learning expectations and supports, Internet access resources, child care availability, child nutrition schedules, community mental health resources, and answers to other important questions raised by families as they prepare for Plan C. As such information is finalized, it will be communicated to families through future “R2L Weekly” updates and the district’s official communication channels.
