BRHS Remote Learning Plan

Boothbay Region High School 馃挋 Distance Learning Plan

* There is no Bath Voc for BRHS students 12/21 - 12/22/21. Students should check their Bath Voc emails. Thank you.

Distance Learning:
When events beyond our control force a closure of the school, Distance Learning allows for continuity of instruction and continued learning. Distance Learning allows students to access learning remotely.

School Closure and Distance Learning Announcements
路 When a closure is made, the announcement will indicate whether the intention is for it to be a Distance Learning Day.
路 Distance Learning days will count as student contact days; students are simply learning in a different location.
路 Students will be expected to attend and participate in remote learning for the classes that would have taken place in school on that day following their regular Blue/Gold Schedule.

Attendance:

Parents are asked to continue to communicate about student attendance / absences. This will allow us to continue to track community health patterns, and provide a range of support for students and families as needed.
Please call the BRHS office 207 633 2421 or email brhsoffice@aos98schools.org

*Teachers will take attendance at the start of each period. The office will contact parents of students marked absent if a parent has not notified the school of their absence.

Framework -
Learning Plan is Synchronous:
For High School: all classroom management and communication regarding remote learning will take place through Google Classroom. All students have access to each of their classes in Goggle.

All students will follow their regular classroom schedule. Example: Academy Period courses start at 7:45 am. Period One: 8:50 am.

*Tuesday 12/21 is a BLUE DAY. Wednesday 12/22/21 is a GOLD DAY.

Teachers and support staff will be available to provide support, answer emails and provide feedback following regular BRHS Blue/Gold schedules during school hours 8 am - 2:30 pm.
We encourage students or families to reach out via email with questions.

Support specialists: Special Educators, RTI Teachers, ELL Teachers will also be reaching out to students using Goggle Classroom and email. Specialists may set up individualized learning and online video conferencing to provide support.

Scheduled Meetings (IEP, 504, etc.):
Scheduled IEP meetings, 504 meetings, and other parent meetings as scheduled via Google Meet, Zoom.

Counselors, Social Workers, and Behavioral Strategists will be available to support students and families via email or Google Meet, Zoom. Students and families are encouraged to reach out as needed.
