Dear David Douglas High School Families,
First let me say, on behalf of our entire staff, we miss having the energy and enthusiasm of students in our buildings! We all hope that you and your family are weathering this powerful storm safely. We are staying strong as a staff and hope your family is remaining resilient as well.
As many of you know the Governor and the Oregon Department of Education recently came out with a directive for schools to begin distance learning. This communication is intended to clarify how David Douglas High School will deliver this Distance Learning for All program.
Beginning Monday, April 13th, students will be connecting with their teachers for the first time virtually. Below is a table illustrating the schedule we intend to follow:
Schedule Beginning Monday, April 13th
|9:00-9:30am||9:35-10:05am||20 minute Break||10:25-10:55am||11:00-11:30am|
|Friday||Advisory 9||Advisory 10||Advisory 11||Advisory 12|
Notice that we are retaining the A/B schedule we normally have. During each class period students will be in contact with their teacher. It is important to note that many teachers will send lessons to students prior to “class.” These lessons will include assignments that will be graded. Class time may be used for discussions or questions.
Another requirement of the Distance Learning for All mandate is that teachers are to be available one hour each day for “office hours.” During this time period students will be able to have their questions answered or receive tutoring. Below is the Office Hours schedule we will follow:
High School Teacher Office Hours Schedule
Students will be able to access a given teacher during the allotted times above.
We are aware that some families may not have the technology required for online learning. There are two solutions to this issue:
1. We will have printed packets available for families to pick up every Monday, beginning April 13, between 9am – 11am in the North building main office; or
2. We will check out Chromebooks to students on Monday, April 13th, between 9am – 11am along the breezeway. You can enter the breezeway by the PAC off of SE 130th.
We realize distance learning is not the same quality as the traditional educational setting. During this critical time it is the best we can offer. It is important for you to know that we are learning this process as well. We will make mistakes. We will be trying new things and adjusting as necessary. In the end, though, please know we will do the best we can to continue to deliver a first rate education to your students.
