Elementary School Virtual Learning

Tuesday through Friday, elementary school teachers will provide approximately 30 minutes of new instruction and student practice per subject area using the schedule below. This will take place through pre-recorded videos or tutorials posted in VUE, the WJCC electronic classroom. Parents and students may access the teachers’ electronic classrooms by logging onto VUE  and selecting class websites in the toolbar on the left side of the screen.  Students will practice the concepts and skills by completing supporting activities as assigned by the teacher. This may include hands-on activities, worksheets, or the use of online programs such as ExactPath, DreamBox, Reflex, and/or Imagine Learning. Printed learning packets for students who cannot access the electronic classroom via the internet or due to no device at home will be available at all 9 elementary schools in a container near the front door of the school.  These new learning packets will be available in two editions:

Middle & High School Grading Practices (March 13-June 12, 2020)

3rd Marking Period – All middle and high school students will receive a traditional grade for the third marking period which will be calculated using grades earned as of March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade by completing missing assignments and assessments that would have been allowed prior to the school closure.

4th Marking Period – Students will earn either a “Complete” (COM) or “Incomplete” (ICM) based on mastery of essential skills and growth in the course and demonstration of readiness to move to the next level.

Final Grades – Middle school students in non-credit courses will receive a final grade calculated using an average of Marking Period 1, 2, and 3 grades. Middle and high school students in yearlong credit courses have the option to receive a final grade calculated using an average of Marking Period 1, 2, and 3 grades OR a “Pass” grade indicating completion of the course without inclusion of a final grade on transcripts. Questions about this option should be directed to the student’s school counselor. High school students in semester courses have the option to receive a final grade equivalent to their Marking Period 3 OR a “Pass” grade indicating completion of the course without inclusion of a final grade on transcripts. Questions about this option should be directed to the student’s school counselor.
