COVID-19 Updates

Virtual Learning Plan

VIRTUAL LEARNING GUIDELINES

On Monday, March 23, 2020 CCA students will begin virtual learning from home. Please visit our COVID-19 CCA webpage for updates and information on school plans as they relate to COVID-19. Please remember, even though the CCA Campus is closed, school is still in session.

  • STUDENT ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
    • Establish daily routines for engaging in the learning experience (for example, set a 8:00 AM start time for classwork).
    • Identify a comfortable, quiet space in your location to learn effectively and successfully. Consider lighting, space for books, computer/iPad and a comfortable chair to create an effective learning environment.
    • In Middle School, regularly check your email or your Google class page for announcements or feedback from your teachers.
    • Complete assignments with integrity and academic honesty.
    • Be a good digital citizen and comply with the CCA Acceptable Use Policy.
    • Do your best to meet timelines, commitments and due dates.
    • Grades will be taken beginning April 6th.
  • PARENT/GUARDIAN ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
    • Check parent email daily for school updates and communication from teachers.
    • Establish routines and expectations with your child.
    • Identify a space in your home for your child to work without distraction on their assigned work, where you can occasionally monitor them and encourage good digital citizenship practices when he works online.
    • Make sure that your child is checking assignments on their Google Class Page daily and staying in communication with their teacher(s). Lesson plans can be found in ParentsWeb.
    • Have a daily check-in with your child about their progress on learning experiences to see if he/she has any questions or needs support.
    • Establish times for reflection, mindfulness and relaxation practices.
    • Encourage physical activity and/or exercise. An active body is a healthy body and mind!
  • PARENT ASSISTANCE
    • Preschool and Elementary School parents will need to assist their child with assignments from their teachers.
    • While parents may be expected to assist in the management of the learning process, parents are not expected to be placed in the role of teacher. In most cases, students should be able to independently carry out the tasks assigned by teachers.
    • The goal is for learning to be authentic. Learning activities can occur online or offline (e.g. reading, exercising, drawing, playing, constructing, writing, etc., are perfectly acceptable virtual school day tasks that can be documented through photographs, videos, and reports or turned in remotely upon return to school).
  • QUESTIONS

    If you or your child have questions during the school day, please reach out to the following faculty and staff members listed below:

    • Course Assignments, Tasks or Feedback - Classroom Teacher
    • Personal or Social-Emotional Concern Regarding CCA Students - Bridget Roth, SEEK Teacher

    KEY TERMS FOR VIRTUAL LEARNING

    SYNCHRONOUS

    Class interactions happen in real-time, at the same time. Students may virtually attend class together via Google Classroom or Google Meets with Livestream or chat.

    VIDEO CONFERENCE

    A virtual meeting in which participants in different locations are able to communicate with each other with audio and video. Teachers will utilize Google Classroom and Google Meets for this function.
