Definitions & Common Terminology

Did you know?

In-person Learning:  

In-person instruction led by the classroom teacher within class cohorts.

Remote Learning:  

Families can choose to learn exclusively online (in Remote Learning) this school year. Students participating in this option will not be participating in school in person.  Students will learn from home in a separate online classroom with other Remote Learning students and a digital classroom teacher.  Students will remain in this virtual classroom group for the trimester (MCS/Ray) and quarter (RMS/HHS) regardless of whether in-person learning continues or we transition to state-mandated remote learning.

State-Mandated Remote Learning:  

Learning from home online resulting from a state-mandated school closure due to the spread of COVID-19.

Parent/School Learning Agreement:  

Upon committing to Remote Learning, parents will be asked to sign a Learning Agreement, outlining responsibilities involved in the commitment in order to ensure a strong school/family partnership.
