In-Person Remote Learning Information

Option 2- In-Person Remote Learning

What is In-Person Remote Learning?


  • The learner is at home every day.
  • Learner’s instructional schedule is the same or similar to the In-Person Learning schedule (Option 1).
  • Learner participates with the class remotely from home each day in scheduled small group and large group direct instruction lessons taking place throughout the day with classroom peers via camera and online meeting technology.
  • The learner does NOT live-stream into the classroom for the entire day, only for scheduled direct instruction lessons led by the teacher which typically lasts no longer than 45 minutes each.
  • Assignments and classwork are the same or similar to in-person peers and are completed on own at home and submitted to the teacher through a learning management system such as Google Classroom or Canvas.
  • Learners are held accountable for the same class requirements, due dates, and attendance as their in-person peers.
  • Note: This method will be used if there is a disruption to In-Person Learning (Option 1).




  • August 31, 2020 - Learners should log into the first block/HR class via Canvas by 7:30 am. Once present, learners will be given further directions by their classroom teacher.
