Summer School


Students and Parents,

As you are probably aware, we have one more snow day available for the 21-22 school year.  Any school closure beyond our one remaining snow day would result in a shift to a remote learning day.  In preparation of this possibility, we wanted to outline a few specifics if we were to have a remote learning day(s).    

*The bell schedule for the remote learning day would follow the SAME schedule for that day if we were in-person.  
*All classes will begin with synchronous learning for a minimum of the first 20 minutes (as required by CDE)
*After the first 20 minutes of each class, the teacher has the autonomy to continue synchronous learning or move to asynchronous learning for the remainder of the class period.  
*Please see below for the CDE definitions and examples of synchronous and asynchronous learning....

“Synchronous learning” is real-time teacher-to-student instruction. This could be in the form of a whole class, small group, or one-on-one instruction. Examples include live-streaming classes (via Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Conference Calls, etc.), reading groups through a virtual platform, peer-to-peer breakout rooms, other peer-to-peer learning activities, etc.

“Asynchronous learning” is teacher-to-student instruction that does not occur in real-time. Examples of asynchronous learning that involve daily teacher-to-student instruction for each course:  

A recorded morning greeting, read aloud, and/or lesson where the teacher is modeling a strategy (e.g., a student was not able to attend synchronously at the scheduled time and views the recording at a different time).  

Discussion board activity where students contribute to a teacher-facilitated class discussion at different times.  

Use of a choice board in which a student can choose how they will demonstrate learning of a concept (done independently but tied to the overall instruction with follow-up from the teacher).  Virtual field trip (tied to content) where students can participate at different times.  

Completion of work, a quiz, or a test that is meaningful and tied to content.  

Offline work that is facilitated by a teacher who has provided instruction and then releases the students to practice a skill or complete a project, then gathers students together to conclude the lesson or meets individually (similar to a “writing workshop” in an in-person class).

Please reach out with any questions and thank you for your continued support of Ponderosa High School.
