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 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.
