We are working very hard to build a Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) schedule and plan for Goldsmith students and families.
Some items are still “under construction” and of course everything is subject to change!
We have the Live Schedule and other NTI items on our school website for your reference: https://goldsmithdolphins.com/coronavirus-and-nti/
Weekly work is posted each Monday here: NTI Portal
We do have a “Live Schedule” that will help you and your family plan for NTI.

Live Lessons: Teachers and Students meet on Google Meet Daily. Lessons are staggered in case siblings are sharing a computer. Lessons are recorded so students may catch up if they miss a lesson. Lessons take place in Google Classroom using Google Meet.
Office Hours: Teachers are available for live Google Meet sessions to offer help, reteaching, and tech help. Teachers might present to small groups or individuals.
The estimated independent work time is two-three hours. If students are reaching a frustration level, this can be scaled back and the work can be done after a break. The school work should not add excessive stress to your family. Reach out to your child’s teacher if assignments are taking much longer than 2-3 hours.
Teachers will accept late work with no penalty during the course of Non Traditional Instruction.
