Parent/Student Zoom and Distance Learning Agreement

Parents, I ask for your help with creating a positive and structured learning environment at home for your student. Following these guidelines, will help us to move efficiently through our Zoom meetings, encourage participation/accountability and maintain student engagement. Please go through each of these guidelines with your child before our next Zoom meeting. Thank you so much for your support with this at home. 

 

Per FUSD directives:

  • Each student will receive a minimum of 135 minutes of online, live instruction (excludes minutes taught by a prep teacher). 

  • The classroom teacher may use an additional 15 minutes to conduct small group instruction or assessment

  • I will be holding office hours (where I will be available to answer questions through Google Classroom), during asynchronous learning at scheduled times each day. 

  • Parents are asked NOT to participate in classroom Zoom sessions, and allow students to work independently in their own space. RECORDINGS of Zoom sessions will not be permitted. 

  • Attendance will be strictly recorded

  • Use the restroom and get a drink of water, be READY to focus

  • Set-up in a quiet space, away from distractions

  • Have materials ready (headphones on, pencilbox, class materials)
