Esparto High School Instructional Schedule For
Our distance learning schedule includes both synchronous (students are online with teacher) and asynchronous(students complete independent work) times. To get the most out of our learning opportunities, it is important that students arrive to all virtual classes on time and ready to participate. Additionally, students must be prepared to complete their independent work in the afternoon after their virtual classroom time.
Esparto High School Expectations for the Virtual Classroom
We know many of you are excited about the upcoming start of the 2020-2021 school year. In order to ensure a productive virtual classroom experience, we are asking all Spartans to adhere to the following virtual classroom expectations.
Choose a quiet space, free from distractions, to set yourself up for class (Do your best).
Turn off cell phones, TVs, etc. Exit other applications on your computer prior to entering the classroom (unless asked to have it open by your instructor).
Check into class early.
Dress appropriately. Remember this is still a classroom setting. You should not wear pajamas, swimwear, clothes that expose undergarments, spaghetti straps, or clothes glorifying violence or illicit substances.
When you enter the virtual classroom, make sure to enable both audio and video. Your video must be on during the lesson in order to be marked present for attendance purposes.
Mute your microphone during the lesson to avoid disturbing the class with any background noise.
Use the chat responsibly. It is meant to facilitate conversation around the lesson topic, not for sideline discussions.
Distance learning requires a lot of personal responsibility, and adherence to these expectations is how you can demonstrate your commitment to your education. Go Spartans!!!
