     Guidelines and Expectations 

    For Students: 

     
    • Ready - Be on time with your camera on and face showing. No blackout screens or only a name/picture showing. If possible, set up a proper work station. Wear clothing appropriate for a school setting.
    • Responsible - Your virtual classes count as the day’s attendance; you are required to attend just like an in-person class. 
      • Complete all activities assigned by your teacher. 
      • Do not submit blank assignments.
      • Ask for help from your teacher during the virtual class session either personally or through the chat. Don’t wait until the virtual class is over to email for extra help.
      • During Breakout Rooms, ONLY work on the assigned task with your classmates.
      • All school rules apply.
    • Respectful - As a respectful collaborator and communicator, be ready to share on your topic with resources, examples, questions, or ideas.

    o    Respectfully wait until an opportunity arises to speak and invite others into

         the conversation when you are finished.

    o    Keep your microphone muted when not speaking or unless told otherwise.

     For Families: 

     
    • Only student voices and images should be present on the screen, as it is a classroom community conversation. Questions and content-related concerns can continue to be discussed via email and avenues provided by your child’s teacher.
    • Be aware of sidebar family conversations which may be picked up when student’s microphone is live or active.
    • All Virtual Learning invitations/links will be shared via Google Classroom or Canvas
