Bluford Unit School District #318

Remote Learning Student Expectations

Bluford Grade School:

We are fully aware that we can in no way replace a school day and the loss of learning that is currently occurring.  The goal of this plan is to help minimize regression by focusing on a few core fundamentals. Teachers will design learning materials based on the core fundamentals for each grade level and content area.  These learning materials should take a student approximately 10-20 minutes per academic subject per day.  

Communication:  The school district has compiled a list of every student to guide teachers.  Teachers will communicate by any means necessary to reach every student including: online, through phone calls, and with written information delivered along with meals.  Email is the most desirable form of communication and teachers will be checking their email daily. Teachers will not have set “office” hours, but will communicate on a flexible schedule.

Grading:  Work assigned during remote learning days is expected to be completed.  Work submitted can increase a student’s academic standing. Any work not completed will be listed as incomplete.  Grading will be based on completion.

Scenario A: The student currently has an “A” in all subjects. The student completes all work assigned for the duration of remote learning. The student will maintain all “A’s”.

Scenario B: The student currently has a “B” in all subjects.  The student completes nothing assigned for the duration of remote learning.  The student will receive an incomplete for those subjects and may need to report to summer school or run the risk of being retained.

Returning Completed Work:  There are several options for families to return work.  If you have internet capabilities, assignments can be emailed to teachers or turned in through Google Classroom.  If you are receiving meal deliveries, completed assignments can be returned at that time. There is also a drop off box outside the grade school office door.

Library Books: If you would like to request a new library book, you can return your current book and send a request to Mrs. Breeze at lbreeze@blufordschools.org.  She will place a new book with your next packet or materials.

Returning to School: When we are able to transition back to regular attendance, teachers will assess each student’s academic standing.  Instruction for the remainder of the year will be focused on closing any gaps created as a result of this closure.

Webber High School:

Teachers will design learning materials based on the core fundamentals for each grade level and content area.  The goal of these learning materials is to help minimize regression and should take a student approximately 15-20 minutes per academic subject per day.

Teachers will not have set “office” hours, but will communicate on a flexible schedule.

Grading:  Work assigned during remote learning days is expected to be completed.  Work submitted can increase a student’s academic standing.

Scenario B: The student currently has a “B” in all subjects.  The student completes nothing assigned for the duration of remote learning.  The student will receive an incomplete for those subjects and may need to report to summer school or run the risk of not receiving the credit and having to repeat the course.
