2020-2021 Classes SH Program Rowland H.S. Okawa

 Ms. Okawa 2020/2021 School Year

Virtual Learning Model

Due to Covid 19 our school format has changed.  Teaching will be presented on a virtual platform.  Students will be given direct instruction via zoom for approximately 30 to 15 minutes each class period.  Instruction will be given Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. Classes will be split into block scheduling of 80 minutes.  Wednesday will be devoted to asynchronous learning day ( students will be working independently, no direct instruction will be given) Attendance will be taken and students will be required to check in with the teacher. Work will be assigned through Google Classroom. Wednesday will also be a time for teacher and staff to connect with students and parents and offer any support that is needed.  Just to summarize, Direct instruction will be taking place mainly in the morning, after lunch, classes will be 30 minutes in length. It is during this time I will be check in with students to see how they are progressing.  A virtual bell schedule will be included unto my website for clarity.

All parents and students will be required to log onto "Clever" students will be able to access the various links needed for the virtual classroom setting.  I will be sending you information with the links via email and on this post.  Every attempt will be made to email all necessary information to you, please make sure you provide the school with a working email.

It is our pleasure to working with you and your student, thank you for allowing us to be part of your educational journey.  We will be here for you, do not hesitate to contact us.  The aides will also be here to assist in every way possible.  We are all looking forward to the day we will be able to meet again in the classroom.

Sincerely, June Okawa and staff
