Introduction:

This work was done using a collaborative process inspired by stakeholder feedback - staff, students, families, and school leaders. The guidelines are meant to cohere the campus experience for all students and staff so that all students will be college and career ready upon graduation. As a united community we will continue to work together to inform, improve, and celebrate our efforts. This is a year of collaborative change, voice, support, understanding, and for us to center ourselves and our policies for and about students.

Research, Data, and Task Force Results that informed the Expectations:

Lawrence High School task force results were used as a guide to develop the expectations that follow. Data from past achievement rates, especially those during our recent stay-at-home order were used. Data from surveys of families, students, and staff were also used.

Who is this Policy for:

All members of the Lawrence High School community. However, there are specific expectations for students and staff detailed below.

Guidelines:

Some Helpful Terms
Remote/Distance Learning Remote learning occurs when the learner and instructor cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting.
Online Learning The term online learning is often used synonymously with eLearning. It is an umbrella term that includes any type of learning accomplished on a computer and usually over the Internet.
Synchronous Learning Synchronous learning refers to a learning event in which a group of students are engaging in learning at the same time with their teacher.
Asynchronous Learning Asynchronous learning is a general term used to describe forms of education, instruction, and learning that do not occur in the same place or at the same time. When learners participate in an online learning course at different times, it is known as asynchronous learning. Asynchronous learning allows learners to work at their own pace.
Hybrid/Blended Learning Hybrid/Blended learning is an instructional approach that includes a combination of online and in-person learning activities. For example, students can complete online self-paced assignments by a certain date and then meet on-site or online for additional learning activities.
Video Conferencing Video conferencing refers to the use of video technology (both hardware and software) to create a virtual meeting between two or more people in different physical locations. Participants can see and hear each other through this technology (e.g., zoom).
Zoom Meeting A Zoom Meeting refers to a video conferencing meeting that's hosted using Zoom. You can join these meetings via a webcam or phone.
Virtual Classroom The virtual classroom refers to a digital classroom learning environment that takes place over the Internet rather than in a physical classroom. It is implemented through software (e.g., google classroom) that allows an instructor and students to interact.
Google Classroom Google Classroom is a free collaboration tool for teachers and students. Teachers can create a classroom, invite students to the class then create and distribute.

 

Student Guidelines
Attendance

Fully Remote and Hybrid Schedules:

School hours are from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm - whether remote or in-person, students are expected to follow their schedule and attend all classes.

When attending remotely, all students are required to adhere to LHS’s Zoom expectations

If, for any reason, you are unable to attend the synchronous lesson, you should communicate with your teacher the same day to discuss and determine next steps.
Engagement:

  • Being on-time and present in every class by opening the class link, asking questions and joining breakout rooms.
  • Responding to feedback provided by your teachers
  • Completing assignments by their due date
  • Displaying emotional engagement by using the features in Zoom and Google Classroom
  • Demonstrating visible cognitive engagement - making eye contact, speaking up, and sharing your ideas, thoughts, and insights
     

Actively participate in school pride and wellness events

  • If your child will be absent from school, contact the Academy Office as soon as possible.
  • If your child is absent, review their missed assignments and help them contact their teachers/advisor for assistance during designated teacher office hours.
  • Encourage your child to connect with their advisor, counselor, and academy administrators to discuss their social-emotional health and access resources
Supporting academic achievement Your child is expected to
  • Join Google Classroom for all of their classes
  • Follow the newly designed school calendar to attend synchronous teaching with all content areas.
  • Utilize office hours to check in with teachers in the event that extra help, or clarification of assignments is needed.

  • Use Tips for Success: Learning Online

 

LHS students,

We would like to welcome you to a year full of wonder, excitement, rigor and support. We know that the last few months have been challenging and we admire your resilience and willingness to learn how to be a flexible learner. For most of you, the next year will start in a fully-remote environment. This is an opportunity to both connect with your teachers and classmates and complete exciting and engaging activities. Understand that we are here to support you and to ensure you are part of a rigorous and dynamic learning environment.

In order to ensure college readiness and success, Lawrence High School is committed to upholding high standards of excellence. Your success is our success. Your ownership and your drive will be instrumental in our shared vision of you becoming the leaders, advocates and professionals of this community.

As your new Head of School, I want us to be a collaborative community to ensure we create an environment that will be driven by your input, presence, and participation. We need you in our virtual LHS space. The LHS staff looks forward to your engagement, your energy and your contributions. What I hear often from LHS staff is that the best part of their day is when they get to interact with you and when you are in their presence as learners and thought partners. As your new campus Head of School, I crave the opportunity to get to know every single one of you . I want to hear your stories, celebrate your language and your culture, and do my best to support your career aspirations and goals.

Students, we want you to understand that the remote learning from last Spring was the result of an emergency closure due to an unprecedented pandemic. As a result, your teachers, administrators and the rest of the LHS community did the best they could to support you and the situation you faced. In turn, there was a lot of flexibility and leniency in terms of grading, promotion, and attendance. While we are still facing the pandemic, we wholeheartedly understand all the social-emotional and academic challenges you face. This school year, we will implement a balanced approach in which we will be both understanding of your challenges and simultaneously upholding high expectations around academic performance, attendance, engagement, and promotion.

This is a new school year. It is filled with high expectations and opportunities for personal growth. We need all of you to be actively engaged in classroom curriculum and activities. We need you to be proactive by taking advantage of your teacher’s office hours and new pre-AP & AP offerings that will push you to the next level. In addition, we want you to be excited about being challenged as you explore new topics in our new campus-wide project based learning initiative and standards-based curriculum. I, along with your principals and LHS staff, have the highest of expectations. We look forward to a strong start, full of rigor, enthusiasm and active participation.


Sincerely Yours,
Victor Caraballo Anderson
Head of School.
