SY 2022 - 2023

The Reedley Distance Learning Program

A flexible and less stressful avenue for our students to learn remotely.

Synchronous and Asynchronous Classes

Synchronous, live classes are online lessons that our students attend as a class at a scheduled time. Our teachers will be facilitating the lessons where active class participation and listening are highly encouraged.

At the same time, it is also possible for our students to learn at their own convenience with the easy access to asynchronous, pre-recorded classes. Our teachers will be available for online academic feedback and reinforcement.

Timely Feedback From Our Highly Trained Teachers

Learning does not stop at answering worksheets and modules. Our students will experience firsthand, quality instructions and timely academic feedback from our highly trained and committed teachers.

Almost all Reedley teachers are Google Certified Level 1 educators. This means that they are skilled to use the GSuite for Education platform. This is an assurance that your children will be guided during their distance learning in this new normal.

E-Call Outs

During this pandemic, we continue to provide the Reedley way of nurturing. Our Life Coaches will check in with our students to offer online counseling to ensure strong mental health and wellness.

Student Life (Off-Screen Activities and Socialization)

Spending too much time in front of a screen, like scrolling social media or video feed, has negative effects on health and brain development. Our students can continue learning off-screen with our offline learning activities.

Offering a myriad of activities throughout the school year for an engaging student life even from home: clubs, assemblies, contests, and other events.

Reedley provides various opportunities for socialization through new platforms that may become part of their regular lives. With the use of technology and the right gadgets and apps, working with others remotely is achievable. Not only can students get to interact real-time with their friends but also collaborative skills are developed as they work with other students in class.

The Reedley App

We make it a breeze for our community to enroll and get real-time updates, such as announcements, student's attendance, grades, cashless transactions with the canteen, and book search in our school library. Available for iOS and Android users.

Grade School eLearning

Daily Schedule

  • Circle Time (Homeroom)

    The day typically begins with a group check-in for students in the class. Students should be ready to participate by this time.

  • Learning Expectations

    Lesson plans for the given week are posted the Friday before to allow ample time to print or prepare learning materials.

  • Offline Activities

    Early graders can choose from offline activities that supplement the concepts discussed in class. Similarly, elementary students are provided with opportunities for offline independent work.

  • Worksheets & Instructions

    All online learning materials and other resources will be posted in Google Classroom.

Online Platforms

Reedley is investing heavily in technology and digital platforms that will be used for the coming school year. Here are 3 major platforms for instruction:

  • 1

    The Reedley App

    Our community’s complete distance learning management system is to be used primarily by the parents to track academic progress and to transact with the school.

  • 2

    Google Classroom Premium

    As our primary platform to deliver the curriculum, it features enhanced security for our students and includes all features in the GSuite for Education.

  • 3

    Zoom

    Our school has procured Zoom licenses for our classes. Students will be taught its features and oriented with the new digital “classroom rules and procedures”.

  • #

    Other Interfaces

    We are currently studying other supplemental platforms, particularly those that offer easy access by the Early grades, as well as resources such as fiction and non-fiction books.


Communications

  • Zoom or Google Meets

    Online classes will be conducted and will begin via video conference with the teacher and the class.

  • Submission of Work

    As with any class set-up, independent work within the class time may be submitted within the class period.

  • Academic Consultation

    Outside of set class time, teachers will be available for consultation.


Dress for School

Students must have showered and wear the appropriate uniform for the day. This establishes a routine and helps develop a sense of normalcy despite distance learning.


Student Expectations

  • Participation

    All students are expected to participate in the online learning classes.

  • Attendance

    Attendance will be checked. Students are expected to work independently on any unfinished tasks outside of class time.

  • Circumstances

    In case of illness or other unforeseen events, parents are to notify the school. Special consideration may be given during these instances.


The Parent’s Role

Here is a checklist of things for the parents and guardians to make sure their children have a smooth and effective distance learning experience.

  • Proper Meals

    Make sure your child has had breakfast and knows where to access his/her food throughout the day for the breaks.

  • Reliable Tools

    Make sure their eLearning device (e.g. tablet, laptop, desktop computer) is working, has stable internet access, is able to do video conferencing, and has good audio.

  • Comfortable Space

    Please set up a dedicated place for your child to study and focus on online learning. Make sure they have a stable desk and a comfortable chair.

  • Schedule-Aware

    Please make sure that other people in the household are aware of the child’s schedule for the week.

  • Check In

    At the end or start of the day, check in with your child about the eLearning tasks as this allows them to demonstrate and summarize their learning.

  • Independent Learning

    Please allow your child to do the class tasks independently with his/her teachers and classmates.

  • Assistance

    Should your child have any questions or need additional help, he/she shall contact the teacher. This is especially true for our Middle School students as this serves as a Life Skill practice and hands-on familiarization of the new platforms for independent remote learning.

  • Online Parent-Teacher Conference

    A Parent Chat is scheduled at the start of the school year, and PTCs are set at the end of the First and Second Terms. Special online meetings may be set when necessary.

  • School Communications

    Keep yourself informed about our program’s events for the school year. Parents will receive weekly emails about the following week’s schedule of events.

Daily Schedule

A regular school day for our High School students begins with Homeroom and proceeds with a series of 8 periods of Lesson Proper. Online classes end early on Wednesdays which are 6-period days.

  • 40-minute Period

    • First 5 minutes: Synchronous Google Meet for giving of tasks and check-in.
    • 30 minutes: Lesson Proper may be synchronous or asynchronous depending on the task.
    • Last 5 minutes: Synchronous Google Meet for review of accomplished task and check-in.
  • 20-20-20 Rule

    To minimize eye strain and maintain healthy eyes during Distance Learning, the whole class will look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds after each 20-minute continuous on-screen class.

  • Study Hall Sessions

    On some regular school days, students may use this time to complete homework or assignments by group to enhance student interaction or individually to focus more on understanding their lessons.

  • Extra Classes

    Academic Consultations, Back Subjects, Afternoon Foreign Language Classes, and Advanced Placement Classes will be held on the 9th to 11th periods.
