    Hybrid Learning Class Expectations

    All students - remote learners and students in both the red and gold cohorts -- will meet every day except Wednesdays for class.   In other words, all students are required to be in their scheduled class on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, whether they are in class remotely or in person.

    Wednesdays are asynchronous learning days.  Students will have a reading, writing or listening assignment to complete.   They may complete the assignment at any time during the day, but it will be an assignment designed to take approximately thirty minutes.

    In addition to the assignment on Wednesdays, students are asked to consult my Olean High School teacher webpage to view the assignments for the week.  These assignments are always updated on Wednesdays.

    To be counted as present, students must appear in a live video frame in my gallery.   Students must keep their videos on for certain class activities, such as class discussion.  Students must contact me if they have individual circumstances – sickness, for example – to request an exemption from this rule.

    Assignments must be submitted through turnitin.com    (Some exceptions will be communicated via a Teams post and my website).

    Students are encouraged to check their student portal and turnitin.com accounts regularly to make certain they are not missing assignments.  Students are also encouraged to use the individual chat function through Teams to contact me if they have questions.   I can usually respond to questions and concerns fairly quickly during the school day, 8am until 3pm.

    I am looking forward to a productive 20-21 academic year!!!

    Mrs. Ventura
