ADDITIONAL NOTES AND FAQS

What resources are required for online learning?
Students will need a device (phone, tablet, computer) that can access the Internet. If they have a tablet or phone, they should download the Google Classroom App. Students might also need their textbooks and other physical resources as well as access to their electronic books. Students may come pick up their textbooks and band/strings instruments on Wednesday, March 18 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

How are we ensuring a quality education while the campus is closed?
In light of the challenges that schools are facing across the nation, Village Christian is making every effort to provide meaningful assignments for students during the time of school closure. Teachers will be providing daily assignments and feedback for students as they continue their coursework.

How will students be graded on coursework during campus closure?
Students will be graded on both participation (the submission of assignments) and quality. Teachers will provide feedback.

How are we facilitating lesson plans/teacher interaction, while utilizing the online platform?
Teachers will upload a daily video greeting to students. Teachers have time (and training) on holding live online events, which include interactive office hours for students to ask questions and get help. We expect students to interact daily with their classes by logging in to Google

Will students have access to their teachers for questions regarding lesson plans?
Students will be expected to log in daily to access their assignments/learning activities for that day. Each content area will have a designated time set aside for students to engage in classroom activities and office hours with their teachers. Teachers will be available to answer student emails throughout school hours.

What is the teacher communication turnaround-time policy?
Teachers will respond to emails they receive during the school day in a timely manner. There may be times that teachers are instructing classes; the expectation is that teachers respond within that school day.

What do parents need to know to help their students be successful?
Teachers will be posting daily video instructions for students which students can access after 8 a.m. each day. Parents should encourage students to check in daily and make use of teachers’ office hours in order to have communication with the teacher to answer questions they may have. Parents can also check FACTS/RenWeb to see daily assignments/learning activities.

How will students be graded on coursework during campus closure?
Each teacher will communicate to students the requirements and expectations for assignments. Teachers will also provide feedback from the assignments they have received from students.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work to provide a quality education in the midst of these uncertain circumstances. We will do everything we can to support each student and family, and we are thankful to be in this together with you.
