Phase 2 of the FFCS At-Home Learning Plan will start April 20. Our teams have worked to simplify the plan to make it easier to follow and to clearly define expectations for each day.
What are the expectations in terms of time and assignments?
We have created two guides to help support our families as they plan and complete student learning. These materials will be made available on the at-home learning plan.
- A grading outline defines expectations and guidelines for 4th quarter report cards. The outline includes summaries for how students will be graded in each school building. It is critical that we keep track of what our students are learning so we can best support them now and when we return to school.
- A scheduling guide can help you schedule your child’s studies each day. The first chart shows the amount of time students in grades pre-K through 12 should devote to their studies each day. Note, these recommendations are for each day, not each subject. The second chart shows which subjects students in grades K through 12 should work on each day.
At-Home Learning Resources
We are committed to providing educational resources for our students while classes are canceled, but it is important to acknowledge that there are practical limits to continuing the instructional program in its entirety. Instead, we have committed to sharing resources for parent-guided and self-guided learning for students.
Our teachers have created a Google document of online age-appropriate resources that you may use with your child. It includes links and resources that will give students the opportunity to practice skills, review content and explore topics at home. Additionally, there are resources for school counseling and student support services.
Teachers, counselors and school principals are available by email during normal school hours to answer any questions you may have. Email addresses are available on the online staff directory. We encourage you to look at the resources that have been created by our staff members with the learning needs of all children in mind.
