    Cactus Shadows Digital Citizenship 2020-  Distance Learning Expectations
    Parents, Guardians, and most importantly, Students - Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  I know that it is going to be so strange to start a school year in a distance learning scenario where school will begin virtually, meeting your teachers and seeing classmates through a screen. Different and strange does not mean it won't be great!  Our attitude is one thing we can control and it is our decision. My hope is that we reach a point sooner than later that we can return to in person learning safely as I can’t wait to see all of you.  Below I have provided our digital learning expectations so that we can all be on the same page as to what distance learning will look like this fall.  If you have questions or concerns, please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them. After the expectations, I have placed the period/time schedule for our distance learning.   *These expectations are for any class that is taken with our teachers and not a part of Edgenuity.  
    Environment: • Setting should be well-lighted - student needs to be clearly visible • No inappropriate posters, wall art, etc. • No audible music or other distracting sounds in background (TV, video games, phones, etc) • Students should participate from a setting conducive to schoolwork - it is best to establish a “school space/desk area” in the home and not attempt to work from cars, public spaces, poolside, laying on a bed or couch Dress: • Students should dress according to the student handbook. • Casual - school-appropriate • Hoodies does not cover the head • No pajamas or sleepwear • No inappropriate messaging on clothing Language and behavior: • School-appropriate language • Avoid distracting behaviors Sign-on: • Students must log in within the 5-minute window before the assigned class time start- Tardiness will be recorded.
    • Video on at all times  • Audio muted (teacher can set this preference) • Breaks should be discouraged since online sessions are brief, however, to minimize distractions if a break is needed, student needs to request permission from teacher, turn video off when leaving room and turn video on upon returning.  Attendance: • Teachers will take attendance with within first 5 minutes of class. Attendance and tardiness will be recorded. • Student having technical issues should “immediately” contact school attendance line.   • If a student will miss a class period or a whole day, please call the attendance line, the same as if we were “in person”.  School Rules: • Student behavior must be in accordance with established guidelines in the handbook.  If a behavior that is not in alignment with the school rules occurs, consequences will apply.   • Academic integrity is absolutely expected during this time- students should produce and turn in their own work -  any violations will have consequences in accordance with the student handbook.
