First Six Weeks Assessments for 9-12 Virtual Learners
 

The goal for exams is to allow teachers to effectively gain a clear assessment of the student’s abilities.  In order to ensure academic integrity for the first six weeks, we are asking students to come face to face to take their exams.  As a District, we have purposefully selected dates, times, and locations that will limit student interaction with others. Not all courses will require a face to face test, please refer to your Schoology course for assessment information.  Assessment calendars will be posted in the Schoology courses the week of Aug 31-Sept 4.  The District will follow all COVID-19 mitigation practices, including required face coverings, social distancing, and enhanced cleaning procedures. Additionally, all testing areas will be frequently sanitized throughout the day and disinfected at the end of each day.

 Logistics:

Testing center:  FHS cafeteria/student center on Saturdays.    

Start Date:  Saturday, September 12

Time:  10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Your subject area teacher will be communicating test dates with you via Schoology.  If you have questions or concerns please contact your teacher.

Attendance

 

The teacher will identify the student as Remote Asynchronous (RA) Present. In order to be counted present the student does not have to be present at a designated official attendance time.

 

In order for a student to be counted “Present,” the student must engage in at least one of the following ways each day:

  • Student has shown daily progress in Schoology
  • Student has shown daily progress via teacher-student interactions
  • Student has completed/turned-in assignment(s) to the teacher

 

*Attendance in Skyward does not need to be taken daily and typically would not happen the same day, as the information as to whether engagement occurred might not be available until the following day.

 

*A Schoology report will be pulled on Monday to review student engagement to determine which days the student was Present or Absent for the previous week.

The expectations for coursework and the grading system will be the same for both Face-to-Face and Virtual Learning. Frenship ISD believes this is the most fair and equitable solution for all our students. Applicable courses in 9-12 grade will be included in calculating GPA and class rank for both Face-to-Face and Virtual Learners.
