Student Expectations

As we begin Term 2, please review classroom expectations (virtual and in-person) with your student.:

Attendance: Students are expected to follow the Hybrid / Remote models that they are
scheduled for. Cohort A is in person Monday and Tuesday and remote
Wednesday-Friday. Cohort B is remote Monday-Wednesday, and in person on
Thursday and Friday. Fully remote participates in distance learning all week. To maintain accurate gradebooks, students that cannot attend in-school learning on their assigned day cannot join remote sections for a short term absence (1-3 days). Students should email their teachers for assistance and join their Wednesday remote sections as well as utilize their ASE periods for additional help and support. Teachers may be able to set up Google Meets with the student to offer additional help and instruction.

If your child will be out for a period of 5 days or more, please contact both your child's counselor and their teachers so they can make arrangements to provide support and resources for them during this period of time. Just a reminder that attendance is taken by teachers each period and STUDENTS NOT IN ATTENDANCE ACCORDING TO THEIR
SCHEDULED PARTICIPATION WILL BE MARKED ABSENT.

Appropriate Remote Participation: Students must be properly attired, sitting at a
desk or table, and to be fully engaged. It is NOT appropriate for students to be in bed, not
dressed for the day, and not in a working environment conducive for learning. Students
must have their cameras on unless instructed by their teachers to shut off cameras for
independent work or connectivity. Comments and discussions must be positive and appropriate.

AJHS has also purchased an on-line tutoring program called Paper that allows students to access a live tutor. Tutors for most core subjects are available 24 hours a day and arrangements can be made for special subjects to schedule assistance with students. Tutors are trained in each specific content area and offer great support and explanation to students to help the student find the answer and solve the problem on their own. They are also able to help with editing written work and offering suggestions. This is a great resource for our students during afterhours and over the weekend if needed, plus takes a lot of the stress off of parents in helping their student with class assignments. The tutoring program can be accessed on the student's CLEVER dashboard where their google classroom and other resources are found. Teachers have also introduced this to students in class.
