Remote Learning Asynchronous Days Added

After reviewing feedback from families and staff, WCPSS has permitted schools to add a Remote Learning Asynchronous day to weeks that have five school days. These days will help to reduce weekly screen time hoursprovide families with flexibility during longer school weeks, and will provide students opportunities to catch up on and complete past unfinished or returned assignments.

We will be adding two Remote Learning Asynchronous days in the month of October:

  • Wednesday, 10/7
  • Wednesday, 10/14

While these are still required instructional days, on these days, there will be no whole classroom live meets other than Morning Meetings and we will not follow the regular instructional schedule. Students will be able to work independently on these days to complete tasks at their own pace based on individual need. 

Students will be provided with asynchronous work to complete during the day and can also use the time to catch up on any unfinished work. Some of the work may be assigned the day before (on Tuesday); however, as this is a required instructional day, most work will be posted in the morning by 9:00 am.  This may include activities such as:

  • Independent Reading, Writing, Math, Science and/or Social Studies Lessons
  • Specials Assignments
  • Dreambox
  • IStation Practice
  • Small group interventions/enrichment 
  • Teacher selected activities

Attendance will be taken on these days based on participation at morning meeting and / or completed assignments.
