Remote Learning Plan

Weekly schedule

Garfield STEM Magnet will utilize the following weekly schedule for students during remote learning starting Monday, August 24th, 2020:

Remote, or online-only, learning will stay in place at Garfield STEM Magnet until the state or district provide alternative directives and/or dates for the beginning of hybrid learning (mixture of face-to-face and online learning).

In the event of the district and Garfield STEM Magnet moving to a hybrid learning model, we will use our hybrid model bell schedule.

REMOTE LEARNING Goals & Plan

  • Mondays: students log into each Google Classroom to receive information and tasks that they can complete asynchronously (not in the direct online presence of the instructor).
  • Tuesdays - Fridays: teachers will meet with students at the beginning of each period using the Google Classroom Meet Link for no more than 20 minutes of face-to-face time to provide instructions, connect with students, answer questions, organize class discussions, and more.
  • Advisory teachers will meet with their students every Wednesday at the end of the day through Google Classroom to focus on social and emotional activities.
  • School counselors and social workers will continue to provide one-on-one social-emotional supports for students in need.
  • Advisory and content-area classes will prioritize social-emotional learning activities in addition to academics.
  • All teachers will create virtual learning and collaboration spaces to promote and monitor academic socialization.
  • Teachers will focus on essential learning standards as defined by the district, school, and department, and will introduce new content that reinforces prior skills while strengthening new academic learning and skills.

Behavioral Health Support
