Moore Square Asynchronous Days
School-Based Asynchronous Days:
Prior to the week of October 26, Moore Square will observe the following asynchronous learning days:
District Asynchronous Learning Days:
Starting with the week of October 26 through the end of the Fall 2020 semester, we will operate district-wide remote learning (asynchronous) days. At this point, schools will be expected to align any existing school structure for asynchronous days to the district structure. There will be a remote learning day on each week where there is not already an interruption to the week across all calendars. Schools should not schedule their own individual asynchronous days in addition to district-wide dates that have already been incorporated into the calendar.
Asynchronous learning days are scheduled on the following dates: November 18, December 2, December 16, January 6, and January 13. These dates are included on weeks where all calendars have five full days of learning.
Please remember the following operational details for asynchronous days:
Live instruction is not required on these days.
Schools are not expected to increase live instruction on other days to meet guidelines for live instruction.
Teachers are not required to engage in office hours for students on these days.
Students should be given asynchronous learning assignments consistent with other days. There should not be additional asynchronous work to compensate for the lack of live instruction.
Attendance must be recorded for each class on asynchronous days because it is an instructional day, but this does not have to be done on the actual "regularly" scheduled class time intervals as other instructional days. This should be handled through work submitted or a brief check-in opportunity.
