2020/2021 CMS Schedule Revision

Christensen Middle School students and families,

Clarification Regarding Upcoming Distance Learning Schedule Modifications at Middle School Level

Rationale:
-Teachers and parents have indicated that additional teacher/student time would be beneficial.
-Additional instructional time should help reduce the amount of independent work/homework students are expected to do.
-We wish to reassert the value and importance of student participation in support periods, which remain available to students on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Schedule Modifications:

Support Periods - We will continue with our daily support periods, which teachers may now require students to attend if/as needed. Support periods will be mandatory for students who are assigned to participate to ensure targeted support for those who need additional assistance. Note: Support periods will not be mandatory for all students.

Wednesday Synchronous Instruction - Going forward, students will attend mandatory instructional periods on Wednesdays, as per the schedule below. We will employ an alternating weekly A/B schedule, with students attending Periods 0, 1, 3, 5 on a designated “A” Wednesday and Periods 2, 4, and 6 on a designated “B” Wednesday. Periods will be 45 minutes long with ten minutes in between to help reduce screen fatigue. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday schedules will remain the same.

Alternating (A/B) Instructional Schedule to Begin Wednesday, January 13, 2021

    0            8:10 - 8:55 am
