Dear UCCS Families,

Today is the first day of remote learning for all of our students. We are writing to confirm for you the expectations of our students at this time.

If you are not online yet, then your child should still have plenty of work to do in the work packets that were put together last week. Even if you are online, please continue to use these. In particular, your child should read the SFA books that were sent home.

The core curriculum of Math and Reading will be maintained through iReady. All of our students can logon to iReady with their Chromebooks. Each day, teachers will assign Math and ELA work on iReady. Additionally, all students have a personal pathway on iReady which provides targeted work based on their most recent diagnostic results.

During the period of closure, we will mark attendance for all students who are actively engaged in online classes in the following way:

• K-2 students should spend at least 30 minutes on iReady Math and 30 minutes on iReady Reading each day, completing the work assigned and using any remaining time for their personal pathway
• 3-5 students should spend at least 45 minutes on iReady Math and 45 minutes on iReady Reading each day, completing the work assigned and using any remaining time for their personal pathway
• 6-8 students should spend at least 60 minutes on iReady Math and 60 minutes on iReady Reading each day, completing the work assigned and using any remaining time for their personal pathway.
Additionally, all teachers will use Google Classroom to set activities and assignments related to Social Studies, Science and Specials. Students should spend time daily on either Social Studies or Science. Students in Grades 6-8 should be working on both Science and Social Studies daily.

Teachers will establish times when they will be online to chat with classes each day.

All students will have a check in call or online meeting with their teacher at least once a week.

We realize that the current situation is challenging for parents and others taking care of students at home. To make things as simple as possible, we recommend the following questions to ask your child:
• Have you completed the required assignments and number of daily minutes on iReady for Math and Reading?
• Have you spent some time today working on either Science or Social Studies - are you up to date with any assignments that need to be submitted?
• Have you spent some time today working on a Special subject?
• Have you spent time today reading your SFA text?
• Did you check in with your teacher and class during 'office hours'?
• Do you know when you will be speaking with your teacher this week?
We hope this helps manage the UCCS 'School at Home' experience. If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact teachers through Dojo or email.
