STUDENT AND FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES FOR REMOTE LEARNING: In order to keep students and families safe, healthy, and informed as the coronavirus evolves in New York City public schools we are converting to remote learning to deliver instruction to students.  We will be using Google Classroom and the REMIND App to communicate with families.  It is expected that students regularly log in and complete work to be accountable to the academic standards for their grade.  Expectations for students and families include:

  • Students should complete instructional activities assigned by teachers within the expected timelines. 
  • Students should participate in check-ins, discussions, and other communication mechanisms as expected by the teacher. 
  • Students should review teacher feedback and complete any follow-up activities as assigned by the teacher. 
  • Students and families should proactively notify their teacher or a school administrator school with any concerns about progress or additional support needed. 
  • Families should support students in being successful by establishing routines and habits that support their success in remote learning. 
  • Families should ensure that students are adhering to their school’s contract for appropriate behavior on web enabled devices. This includes that online learning should stay on the platform being used and cannot be shared on any social media.
  • Students may only access Google Classroom using the student accounts that their teachers provided.  Parent accounts should not be used on Classroom pages. Coordinate with individual teachers if there is any issue.
