REMOTE LEARNING IN GUSD

Globe Unified School District #1

ALL STUDENTS IN GUSD WILL BE IN A REMOTE LEARNING MODEL UNTIL IT IS DETERMINED SAFE TO RETURN TO IN-PERSON LEARNING USING HEALTH METRICS FROM THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

Students that chose the TKO (online) option as their enrollment option will still be in our TKO option. Students that selected the in-person or hybrid option will transition to a remote learning model until safe to return to school.

What can families expect while learning in a remote learning environment? Students will participate in the same learning they are used to, but in a structured online environment. Students will be individually assigned age, grade and ability appropriate instruction through our online learning management system. Globe teachers will be interacting with Globe students on a regular basis in this program. Globe teachers will have face to face interaction via the video and live meetings. Students that need additional help will have direct access to teachers through chat rooms, email and virtual office hours.

GUSD will initially be providing each family unit a Chromebook to facilitate remote learning. A student that needs an on-site support service option should call the school that they attend for more information. Packet and supplemental material requests may also be made through the individual school/teacher.

The remote student experience:

  • Students will access curriculum/learning through a remote learning device via the internet (GUSD will have district-provided laptops and internet hotspots for a finite number of students that need them).
  • Teachers will assign students self-guided/self-paced modules and lessons to complete in our online learning management system. All curriculum is aligned with Arizona state standards for education.
  • Students can complete the work any time during the day and before the due date to allow for the greatest flexibility for families. For example, students are not required to sit in front of the computer for the full day of a traditional learning day to experience classes as if they were in the school building.
  • Students will be expected to log-in to the learning platform daily (and in to each class period if an HDMS or GHS student) to be marked present, the emphasis will be on completing assignments and lessons and not on the time a student spends on-line. Please be aware that online learning still requires time and effort to facilitate learning.
  • Parents are encouraged to actively participate in student learning to assist our schools with ensuring student participation, attendance and course completion.
  • Special education students will be provided with support in accordance with the Individualized Education Plan to every extent possible.
