The Greeneview Virtual Learning Academy was created for the 2020-2021 school year to provide families with the opportunity to educate their children from home in the midst of the pandemic. The selection of this educational option is made for an entire semester at a time.
As you begin this virtual learning pathway on Tuesday, September 1st we encourage you to begin by working through the tutorials in each system. They will walk you through the programs and will provide a better understanding of the programs and expectations.
Lincoln Learning Guidelines and Suggestions
- Essential Activities - File from Lincoln Learning
- Several components of the program are essential for the students to complete. The other activities are enhancements or extra assignments. The attachment below provides specific information.
- Essential Activities: focus on these activities when beginning math and English and do not do the extra activities.
- Read It and/or Teach It: Read It is all student driven but the Teach It has the information read aloud and points out details on the screen. They cover the same material and it is not essential to do both, unless your child is not grasping the material the first time through.
- Show It: Non-graded practice. Have them do the practice and then check their answers in the Answer Key
- Assess It: These are the graded assignments. They may be computer graded or the teacher will grade it and enter a score.
The goal of these programs is that students can maintain academic progress while they are physically away from school in these is self-paced learning platforms. Students must maintain progress in order to be considered in attendance and to achieve the best learning outcomes. The following is a summary of the attendance policy for virtual students: FULL ABSENCE GUIDELINES
- Every student should log in every day that school is in session.
- Students should be prepared to complete a minimum of 5 hours per day for MS and HS.
- Students should be prepared to complete a minimum of 4 hours per day for ES.
- Students must show consistent progress in each class in order to complete the courses by the end of the semester.
- If attendance becomes an issue, there will be consequences, as there are with in-person learning.
- Case Managers will be first to contact the student and family.
- Assistant Principals and Guidance Counselors will be involved if attendance continues to be an issue to create an absence intervention plan.
- If attendance does improve then the truancy interventionist and juvenile courts will work with the school and family to develop an attendance plan.
Learning Support and Tutoring:
Case Manager: Each virtual learner will be assigned to a caseload of a Greeneview staff member. The case manager will grade some of the student work and will regularly check in on students to keep them on track. If questions arise, or additional help is needed, this case manager will be the main point of contact.
