Students will notify their program coach and of any concerns. Students will:
Be on time to class.
Attend all scheduled classes; meet course pacing guidelines.
Maintain academic integrity. “Do your own work”.
Ask questions, actively participate in class discussions, and work to best potential.
Be kind. Be respectful to peers and teachers in the online environment.
Participate in all District and State Mandated Tests.
Complete all required school days, assignments, quizzes, etc., prior to end of semester.
In addition, in the online classroom students will:
Dress appropriately (as one would in the traditional school environment).
Turn on camera and maintain physical presence (just as one would have a physical presence in the traditional school classroom). Exceptions may be made due to technical issues.
Make sure their background is appropriate. Please be mindful of people that can be seen in the camera view. For example, laying on your bed is not considered an appropriate classroom environment.
Leave yourself muted unless instructed otherwise to unmute.
Consider using a headset with an external mic for best hearing and speaking capabilities.
Close unneeded applications on your computer to optimize the video quality.
Raise your virtual hand and wait until you are called if you have a question or have something to say. Please put your hand down if you no longer need to share.
When you are speaking, let others know that you are finished by saying something like, “Thank you,” so that everyone knows you have finished your comments.
Keep paper and a pen or pencil handy to take notes.
If you need to get something or do something like go to the restroom, please do so quietly. You don’t need to ask or announce you are back.
Stay on topic. Please use office hours to talk about things that are not on topic (upcoming absences, questions about nonrelated topics, etc.).
If you are having technical difficulties, please leave the space and reenter. You don’t need to ask to do that. Please try this before you ask for help. Call IT at (907) 486-7587 if you need further help.
Remember your student is learning and it is okay if they answer something incorrectly.
Teachers may have additional expectations based on the needs of the class. For example, “If we skip your turn or you pass, we will circle back around to you at the end.”
