Remote instruction in grades PK-5 will include both synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
- Synchronous instruction – defined as two-way, real-time, live instruction between teachers and students, through the computer or other electronic devices or over the phone.
- Asynchronous instruction – defined as a curricular experience where students engage in the learning materials on their own time, interacting intermittently with the teacher via the computer or other electronic devices or over the phone. Includes pre-recorded videos.
All remote instruction will include:
- Daily interactions with the teacher
- TEKS-aligned curriculum resources that follow a logical course sequence
- Formal and informal assessments that ensure continued information on student progress
- Continued opportunities to review and reinforce essential skills
- Specifically designed resources and/or accommodations and modifications to support students with disabilities, English Learners and students in need of enrichment.
Families selecting the long-term remote instruction option will receive detailed information including the scope and sequence for instruction, a schedule for synchronous instruction, a suggested schedule for asynchronous work, log in information and instructions for using Clever and TEAMS. In addition, families will receive a quarterly newsletter highlighting the targeted skills in each content for the upcoming nine-week period.
To ensure high levels of learning during remote instruction, the school, student and family must work together and communicate daily.
