Virtual Learning Options for School Year 2021-2022

At their meeting on October 19, the School Board heard a presentation from administration regarding the options available to teachers when working with students who are out of school for extended periods of time. This presentation included the handout, linked below, that summarizes the ways in which teachers present learning material to students at various grade levels. We are posting it today in order to give parents a clearer picture of what is expected and available relative to learning beyond the school buildings. As was pointed out during the presentation, it is important that parents contact teachers or building administrators if they either require assistance in accessing learning material, or if for some reason their student has not been receiving that instructional material.

Notice of Public Hearing

LONDONDERRY SCHOOL DISTRICT
LEGAL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Supporting Students When They are Absent Due to Extended Illnesses

The school district is in the process of expanding our ability to meet the needs of students who are absent from school for longer periods of time than they would be for a normal short-term illness. Last school year, we were able to commit a number of staff members to remote instruction as  result of the significant number of families electing to learn in that environment. This year, with full in-school learning, we do not have the ability to redeploy staff in that manner. As such, we have to rely upon more traditional methods of delivering learning to students who are out of the school building.

With the wide variety of ages of students we serve and the material they are tasked with learning, it is important for individual teachers to make the determination of how best for students to learn from home. This is a list of measures that are currently available, or are in the process of being developed.

  • Sharing of in-school learning resources and materials (textbooks, workbooks, etc.)
  • Communication with teachers electronically via email or phone
  • Use of Google Classroom for assignments or communication with teachers
  • Use of video conferencing for live interactions both within a class and with staff
  • Pre-recorded videos of lessons or activities from teachers in district
  • Existing on-line learning materials such as those provided by the College Board, virtual learning providers such as Kahn Academy and other similar resources.
  • Use of on-line learning materials, tutorials, or software related to concepts under study (iReady, etc.)
  • After school hours – extra help sessions with staff or tutors

We are currently working to expand our offerings of live on-line help both during and after school hours, to be offered both by our staff and from independent tutoring services. This will be expanded as soon as possible.
