SRVUSD Remote Learning Update 3/23/2020
Posted 3/23/20

As we enter our second week of school closure, we wanted to check in with you.  We hope your families are staying healthy and that you are finding ways to enjoy time with one another.  We know these are unique and challenging times. We are grateful that our families and staff are our partners in bringing voluntary, flexible and independent learning to our students. Everyone is challenged with finding their new normal under extenuating circumstances. Working together, we know we can face these challenges and support student learning.    

 

Beginning tomorrow, students will be participating in their voluntary learning via the SRVUSD’s Remote Learning Plan.  We want to remind you of a few important points prior to tomorrow’s launch. 

  • You will need internet connectivity and an internet ready device in order to participate.  Please fill out this form or call our help desk at (925) 824-1840 if you need help obtaining either a device or connectivity. 

  • You should have received a check-in email from your child’s teacher(s) by tomorrow morning.  Please make sure that you respond so that we know your child will be participating. 

  • Lessons and curriculum will be available beginning tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at the latest.  Please read all information from your child’s teacher(s) in order to access the lessons. 

  • All coursework through April 3 will focus on review and/or reinforcement of previous material in order to acclimate students to a remote learning environment.  Should our school closure extend past Spring Break, we will communicate our plans for the next phase of remote learning. 

  • If you have questions, please refer to this list of Frequently Asked Questions, which will be updated regularly.  Additionally, you may contact your teacher with class specific or individual questions. 

We know that instruction, assessment and student learning will look different during our period of remote learning.  We also understand that remote learning will also not wholly replace in-class instruction, however, we aim to provide quality and meaningful work while maintaining reasonable expectations for our students and teachers during this extraordinary time.   

 

We have been receiving many questions regarding some unresolved issues like grading, extended school closures, AP testing, etc.  We anticipate that the solutions to many, if not all, of these issues will be decided at a state or national level. While we understand that it is unsettling not to have these answers, we are hesitant to provide any information right now, as we know it will likely change. We are committed to making sure that our students and families have the best information possible and we will communicate that information when we have it to share.
