Online Instruction and Returning School Property
ASTEC teachers will deliver instruction, assignments and schedule time with students in Google Classroom. Scholars must log into Google Classroom for each class every school day to keep up with learning. Students are to stay home (shelter in place) and should not report to the school building for any reason.
Instruction and assignments will be delivered through Google Classroom. Scholars should log in each morning to get your assignments. Assignments are due by 11:59 PM daily.
If a scholar is unable to log in during an assigned class time, he or she is still responsible for the content covered in that class period.
Getting Help From Teachers
Each afternoon, from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM teachers will be available to scholars for help through Google Hangouts. Your teacher will provide instructions through Google Classroom.
Teachers are also available through email to answer questions and help with technology concerns throughout the day.
Some teachers may choose to have a class by video conferencing through Google Hangouts on occasion. If a teacher chooses to do that, you will be notified through Google Classroom and given instructions and proper etiquette.
Video conferencing will occur at the following times should a teacher schedule one:
First Period: 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM
Second Period: 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM
Third Period: 9:30 AM to 10:00 AM
Fourth Period: 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM
Fifth Period: 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM
Sixth Period: 11:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Seventh Period: 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Office Hours for Individual Help: 12:30 to 2:00 PM
Attendance and Grading
Teachers will record attendance each day based on the scholar: 1. Logging into Google Classroom and 2. Satisfactorily completing assignments in the course.
This gives students who need to improve their grades and opportunity to do that.
Teachers will take a minimum of 3 grades per week to help improve a scholar’s grade.
ASTEC expect’s all scholars to do their best to meet the learning expectations of all classes.
Scholars must follow the Technology Use Agreement at all times. Scholars must be respectful in their interactions with teachers and other scholars while participating in Google Hangouts, and in their emails. In summary, ASTEC’s Code of Conduct remains in place as we engage in distance learning. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension.
Returning School Property
Scholars are responsible for returning all items that were checked out to them this school year. This includes, but is not limited to Chromebooks, textbooks, sports uniforms, etc. ASTEC will inform you of that process at a later date. Check-in will be done in the safest manner possible and will follow the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and any directives from local, state, or national government. Failure to return school property will result in involving the local authorities.
