Grades and Attendance
These guidelines are provided so that parents understand expectations of distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, during this shelter in place. Teachers may use the “rubrics” below (which are criteria for grading) or may have already established their grading system for their classes. They, along with other school staff, will also be working with students and with families to understand their situations and be as flexible as possible.
The most important thing to remember is that learning at home is not the same as learning in school. We have a diverse teacher and family population who are experiencing this pandemic in many different ways. Coping with this situation happens for some by focusing on school work. For some, it is focusing on mental health, and for some, it is focusing on surviving. These recommended guidelines were created with that diversity in mind.
- The CDE has determined attendance will be taken during distance learning.
- Attendance will be taken by teachers for each class period and during Wednesdays when students will be given an assignment to complete by each of their teachers.
Per California Education Code students are still required to participate in their education during school site closures and Distance Learning. Families have an obligation to compel their student to participate in learning, and schools have an obligation to provide support and services as needed to facilitate student involvement.
- If you have concerns related to technology access, managing student work loads or other supports needed please reach out to your student’s counselor via e-mail to request assistance.
- Students who are not participating or completing work will first be contacted by their teachers to clarify expectations and provide directions on accessing class materials.
- If students are continuing to not participate or complete work, SRHS Support Staff will contact families to assess needs and provide support for students to engage in their education.
- Students who show a pattern of non-participation or lack of work completion over several weeks will be contacted by site leadership to assist them and their families in meeting their obligation to participate in federally mandated public education through age 18.
- For information about the individual expectations of teacher please go to the Teacher Directory and Resources page.
PE Credit for Sport
Students who planned to complete a sport (spring of 2020) to satisfy PE credits will receive those credits if you were on a team roster. Counselors will receive the roster(s) from the Athletic Director by the end of this week to verify your planned participation.
AP exams will all be held in May, but through a shortened online test. SRHS will work to support all our AP students to best prepare them for this new testing format. The date(s) of tests will be announced in early April. This decision comes directly from the College Board, who published the following relevant details. Go to Student Information for more resources to prepare for your AP exams.
Go to the Student Information section of these resources for AP resources and information about AP online testing.
