Until the pandemic, very few people knew about the online meeting platform Zoom. Now, students and teachers are “Zooming” every day. Participants are expected to use the same respectful and appropriate behavior as they would in a face-to-face class. Recently, WJCC Schools made the following adjustments to ZOOM practices:
- Students must use their real name (assigned in VUE) as their name in ZOOM.
- Cameras must be on at the beginning of class for teachers to verify attendance. This is now a default setting divisionwide.
- Students should leave cameras on during live instruction and group work. They may turn off their cameras when completing independent work.
If you have a concern about your child’s camera remaining on during class, please contact your child’s school.
