Remote Learning Overview

Triad Remote Learning Survey - Triad Community Unit #2
Remote Learning defined by the Illinois State Board of Education requires at least 5 hours of instruction for all students in Grades 1-8 and may include some combination of instruction and school work. Kindergarten and Early Childhood Students will have at least two-and-one-half hours (2.5 hours) of instruction. As much face to face or ‘synchronous’ instruction as possible will occur and all learning activities can count toward the minimum five clock hour requirement. Schools have been afforded flexibility in meeting those requirements.
 

Examples of Remote Learning activities include:

  • Instruction through a remote platform such as Google Classroom or Seesaw
  • Remote small group instruction through a breakout room or conference call
  • Independent/flexible student work time
  • Virtual/telephone teacher student check in
  • Use of a prescribed program plan such as Freckle to provide for remediation or enrichment
  • Project Tree or special education services

All students are following a specific, sequential daily schedule and will be expected to be "in class" and ready to learn daily for the entire remote learning session.

 

Student attendance, participation, progress and achievement will be closely monitored and students must be present during online instruction. Students will be assessed at the beginning of the school year to measure strengths and weaknesses after the spring closure and a lack of in-person instruction. Assessment of learning will be ongoing.

This year's Remote Learning is very different from the spring E-Learning sessions as grades and attendance will be congruent with In-Person education. Students are expected to be in attendance for all classes and will be given regular grades on all assignments. Assignments must be completed when assigned. Students are subject to all compulsory attendance laws.

 

If a child is receiving special education or accommodations through a 504 plan, they will receive the service in the general or special education classroom via a remote classroom or in a private space as prescribed by the child’s Individualized Education Program. All children with disabilities or a 504 plan will have a new remote learning plan embedded in their IEP.

 

Students who received an incomplete or who did not hand in their technology device after the Spring session are ineligible to participate in remote learning offered by the district.
