In all program levels, teachers will present a schedule and assignments and/or recommendations for specific works or activities to complete during the day. Depending on program level, group and/or individualized check-ins with teachers will be scheduled on a daily basis.
Although specific structure for remote learning will depend on your child's age and program level, please know that students will not be "on screens" for the full day. Off-screen activities, assignments, and recommended time for movement are built into schedules at every level.
While Chiaravalle has never implemented a remote learning plan, our strategy has been informed by best practices and experiences of independent peer schools that have already closed due to COVID-19 or other emergencies. Our goal is to provide students with activity, engagement, support and structure that is on par with in-person learning. We appreciate your patience as there are many things still being finalized, and there may be learning moments and adjustments along the way.
Chiaravalle hosted two Q & A sessions for parents to share and outline the plan.
Our goal is to provide as much connection, support and teaching as we can for students and families, while reflecting, learning and growing ourselves. We’ll build in more lessons, continue to provide resources, experiment with new technologies, and find ways of assessing progress. We are in this together.
Chiaravalle is using Google Meet for group and 1-1 video meetings with families and students. This 2 minute video will get you oriented.
Interactive sessions during this initial phase of remote learning will use Google Meet, which is accessible by Chromebook, laptop, or desktop computer via Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Edge browsers and via iPad using the Google Meet app. Meet uses both the microphone and built-in web camera or external USB camera on your device.
Remote learning is new to Chiaravalle and remote learning at this scale is also new for our country’s technology platforms. We know that things might be bumpy and ask for your patience as we explore this new opportunity for learning.
If you have a technical issue or question, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our IT Team will help.
Here’s a few tips on writing an IT ticket:
Write a clear subject line. A support ticket subject line should set expectations, and if possible, enable the helpdesk agent to glance at the subject line and immediately know the issue (without being too wordy).
Provide Baseline Technical Details. Include the device being used, operating system and version, browser type, and URL where the error occurred.
Include the time the error happened.
Share a Screenshot or the Exact Text of the Error Message.
