Our Lady of the Visitation School has approved the use of online assignments to make up work when we exceed our allotted number of calamity days.
Make-Up Plan for Calamity Days
Each classroom teacher will develop a sufficient number of lessons requiring, in the judgment of the teacher, the amount of time equal to or greater than the amount of instructional time the student would receive for three school days in his or her class.
Teachers will update or replace such lessons as necessary throughout the school year based on the instructional progress of students.
On the day of the school closing, a lesson will be posted in the morning for each course that was scheduled to meet on that day. It could also be emailed to parents and/or students if needed.
Students are encouraged to complete these lessons as soon as possible because most lessons are timely for the current area of study and students do not want to fall behind in their classes.
Students must complete their assignments within a two-week period from the date of posting. If the student does not complete the lesson within this time period, the student will receive an incomplete or failing grade unless a reason sufficient to the teacher is provided.
Students without access to a computer will be able to complete the posted lessons at school after the reopening of school. Students using this option will be granted two weeks from the date of reopening to complete these lessons.
The school will provide access to school computers before, during, or after the school day or will provide a similar paper lesson in order for students to complete the assignments.
