Remote Learning @ AFSE

Overview
Monday, March 23, is the official start of our Remote Learning transition. All students are expected to begin and engage in school work throughout the transition to meet requirements and prepare for exams. Teachers will be using Google Classroom and students will log into each of their classes each day to continue to coursework. 
 
Student Schedules during Spring Break: As we shared earlier this week, students are expected to participate in school activities throughout what was formerly Spring Break. Our staff habeen working really hard to ensure that we provide students with engaging activities outside of the normal classwork that has been assigned.  Please follow the links to the right to access the schedule for your academy for next week.  Please note that real-time instruction with the exception of your advisory hangout will not take place and instead students will be expected to catch up on assignments or upgrade work in addition to participating in a variety of exciting remote activities.   
 
The schedules previously shared will be paused during Spring Break. We will make those documents available again after Spring Break. 
 
Teacher Schedules: Teachers will be hosting remote Real-Time instruction through a variety of means including Google Hangout/Meet.  Students should expect to engage in Real-Time instruction for each course at least once per week.  The tentative schedules (linked on the right) provide the times in which Real-Time instruction is available by teacher. Please note, these are live documents and are subject to change. Check back frequently for updates.
 
Lower Academy Homework Trackers: 9th & 10th grade students can keep track of their assignments using the trackerlinked below. They will be updated weekly by teachers to show what assignments are due daily by the specific class.
