Students must continue to be actively engaged in learning. Students must finish their initial learning package that was given for the initial 9-day suspension from classes by Thursday, April 9th. It is still to be determined how these packages will be delivered back to schools. We will let you know when that information becomes available.
The new learning content will be delivered starting on April 13th. This will be offered as online learning (unless students do not have connectivity) and cover the essential course content (outcomes) that students will need to display understanding of to receive their credit. Teachers will be in contact with students through their MVSD emails or phone. These are preferred methods, but some teachers may use alternatives.
To get a credit in the course, students MUST show that they meet the course outcomes. Students will do this by completing the initial learning package and the on-line assignments that will be facilitated by teachers starting April 13th. The student’s grade at the time of suspension will be their baseline grade (unless incomplete assignments were not yet entered into POWERSCHOOL at that time). This means that their mark cannot go down from here. However, students may be able to raise that mark if their distance learning activities and assessment show greater understanding. But once again, students will not receive their credit unless they complete the outcomes of the course facilitated by the on-line assignments provided by teachers. If they do not complete the online material, students will receive an incomplete for that course.
Students will receive a report card at the end of June.
