Secondary Distance Learning Plan

Dear STEP Academy Secondary (6-12) Families,
In the event that distance learning is implemented beginning March 30, 2020 , please be aware
that you are still being held responsible for your education. In order to help you with this, each
of your teachers have set up individual Google Classrooms for each one of your classes. If you
have been using Google Classroom for any of your classes throughout the school year, you will
be using those same classrooms. If you have not been using Google Classroom in certain
classes, you now will be. You will be receiving an invite to join any new Google Classrooms by
Friday March 20, 2020 in your STEP Academy email.
The following are procedures and expectations with the new distance learning model:
● Students will log in to google Classroom and take attendance with their first hour
○ Attendance will be taken between 8:30AM-12:30PM Monday-Friday
● Each teacher will post an individual distance learning syllabus on their Google
○ Students are required to read each syllabus and abide by the requirements of
each teacher
○ Students will find office hours of each teacher on the teacher’s syllabus
■ Office hours are time periods when teachers actively be available through
email, phone call, and/or video chat
● Instructions, phone numbers, and email can be found on each
teacher’s syllabus
● Students are responsible for checking in to each class every day, view available
assignments and complete the assignments according to the due dates
● Every student needs to check their Synergy account on Mondays and Fridays
○ If there is an issue or concern with a student’s grade, students and/or parents
can communicate those via email.
