Option Three: OneClay Online (NOW K-12))
This model is designed for families who would like to maintain their connection to their enrolled school, but do not yet feel comfortable sending their student(s) back to school in August. Students will attend school remotely and teaching will mirror the pace and rigor of brick and mortar. CCDS strongly encourages a full semester commitment for this option to ensure instructional continuity, as well as an adult who can partner with OneClay Online teachers.
Based on feedback after our distance learning experience during Quarter 4, this learning model will incorporate many of the features that parents and students valued, such as regular virtual real-time interaction with teachers and classmates. Parents can rely on teachers to facilitate and guide student learning.
Students will have scheduled synchronous (live video instruction) class meetings and digital resources and assignments, replicating the standard school day bell schedule virtually. Click here for a sample daily schedule. Teachers will utilize Google Classroom to provide instructional resources and the curriculum content will be the same as the brick and mortar classroom, including online assessments and progress monitoring. This learning model should make for an easier transition back to brick and mortar school and provides families the flexibility to choose an instructional model to meet their needs during these uncertain times, and reflects our District’s commitment to providing a high-quality instructional experience, no matter what the setting.
