Distance Learning 2.0 Schedules
All SVSD students will begin in the 100% Distance Learning model for the first term of the 2020-21 school year. Below are schedules related to various grade levels. Individual student schedules will be posted online through Family Access on Friday, August 28.
Elementary School Schedules
All students in elementary school will begin the school year in a 100% Distance Learning model. Staff will have monitored access to school sites for the purpose of planning and delivering online instruction. Students in elementary school will learn through a combination of synchronous (live, scheduled) lessons and asynchronous (independent tasks) learning opportunities until students can physically return to our buildings. Once we are able to implement a hybrid model and bring some students back to school, both the100% Full-time Remote and Hybrid A/B Rotation learning models will include coverage of the same learning standards, pacing of content, and common benchmark assessments.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
Students will engage daily and attendance will be taken. In order to provide rigorous learning opportunities for all students, as well as meet the needs of students receiving special services, SVSD has developed a robust elementary Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) online schedule. The blending of two grade levels following the same MTSS schedule is necessary for the maximization of resources and instructional time.
Core instruction in the content areas of English Language Arts, mathematics, and science will be consistent throughout the school district and will mostly be delivered via recorded content. Elementary student interventions will occur during identified Differentiation Block times. Intervention services will be differentiated based on student needs, prioritizing direct services to special education, 504, English Learner, Highly Capable (Cluster grouped students), and students performing significantly below grade level. Instructional coaches and specialists will support classroom teachers in using instructional strategies to personalize the learning of students at progressing and highly capable levels. Services can be provided synchronously or asynchronously with the emphasis on having more synchronous interactions with students in these service areas. There will be an emphasis on live small group instruction based on student need.
The Wednesday schedule will provide additional opportunities for differentiated instruction, family connections and opportunities for relationship building and access to other non-core content.
