Teaching and Learning

The district intends to provide in-person instruction four days a week for all students starting April 6, 2021, parents/guardians may also choose to continue 100% remote learning. Wednesdays will continue to be “Flex” or PLC days and will be remote for all students.  All other aspects of this plan will continue to be in effect.

Effective Instructional Practices

The fundamentals of teaching and learning hold true in our classrooms as well as in a home environment. We will make every effort to hold true to these fundamentals.

  • Lesson objectives will be clearly communicated to students.
  • Content and skills will be introduced and reinforced in a variety of ways.
  • Collaboration is an important part of learning. Students will have opportunities to interact with their teacher and each other
  • Teachers will continue to monitor student progress and provide timely feedback. 
  • Guidelines for grading and assessments are being discussed and information will be forthcoming, pending State Education Department guidance.

Supporting the Home Environment  

Parents can:

  • Set up a daily family routine, including healthy eating and sleeping habits; create a daily schedule that includes quiet work time, physical activity, and family time.
  • Talk each day with your child about his/her work and promote literacy by reading to your child and encouraging him/her to read independently.
  • Limit and monitor TV watching, gaming, social media and unproductive computer time.

School Schedules

UPDATE-Schools will open a 4-day in person option as of April 6, 2021. Additionally, we will retain hybrid and 100% remote options, this includes a Flex Wednesday (subject to change) and PLC days

SAMPLE SCHEDULES FOR ALL MODES OF LEARNING

As per New York State Guidelines the Lakeland Central School District has prepared schedules for three possible reopening scenarios, 100% In Person, 100% Remote, and Hybrid Learning in which some students will attend school on a particular day and others will work from home in order to meet CDC Guidelines for social distancing. 

As stated earlier in this document, in all three scenarios students will be provided with instruction aligned to academic programs which include regular and substantive interactions with an appropriately certified teacher regardless of delivery method, whether in person, remote or hybrid. Instruction is aligned to outcomes in  New York State Standards. All instruction has been developed so that whether delivered in-person, remotely or through a hybrid model due to a local or state closure, there are clear opportunities for instruction that are accessible to all students.

Hybrid Model (PENDING FUTURE UPDATES)

Hybrid Learning - Sample Schedules (subject to revision)

In order to reduce student density, all LCSD schools will group students by “A” or “B” cohorts. These cohorts of students will alternately attend school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with Wednesdays acting as a “Flex” day and being all virtual.

Student groupings of “A” and “B” cohorts will be selected by alphabetical order as follows:

“A” cohort  = students with the last name that begins with A-L.

“B” cohort  = students with the last name that begins with M-Z.

A/B cohorts will generally be created alphabetically.  In addition, the building administration will consider other variables such as grade level, class-size, type of class, siblings, and/or extenuating circumstances deemed necessary to balance density levels.

All hybrid/remote school schedules were created to provide for optimal daily student interactions with teaching staff and to accommodate an A/B schedule. Students in grades 6-12 will be provided with a Google email account to ease communication between students and teachers.

Wednesday is a “Flex” Day which will be utilized for the following: 

Virtual instruction for all students; teachers will be expected to monitor emails throughout the day.

Mandated meetings that require teacher/staff attendance

As a day of in-person instruction during weeks shortened due to holidays (see examples below)

A Flex-day shortened week calendar will be provided for planning purposes.

 

Schedule for weeks containing a single holiday will be adjusted with use of the Flex-day as an instructional in school day.

A schedule will be communicated by your child’s teacher.

English Language Learners  

In order to address the learning loss experienced by many English language learners (ELLs), in both their English language development and their mastery of content area knowledge the LCSD will:

  • New registrants whose Home Language Questionnaire notes a second language is spoken in the home will be screened for ENL services via an individual interview. If the individual interview shows the student’s primary language is other than English, the student will be given the New York State Identification Test for English Language Learners  (NYSITELL) within the first 30 days of school opening to determine the student’s English language proficiency level.
  • All ELLs will be placed appropriately and will be provided units of study based on their last English proficiency assessments, either the NYSITELL given to new entrants in the 2020-2021 school year, or the results of the spring 2019 New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test  (NYSESLAT).  
  • Former ELLs who tested Commanding in 2018 or 2019 will be eligible for transitional ENL services and/or will be monitored through integrated content instruction with the ENL teachers and ENL teacher-to-student check-ins.
  • Progress monitoring will be done by using the NYSESLAT Targets of Measurement in reading, writing, listening and speaking.
  • All ELLs are assigned to an AB cohort and attend school on all 4 days to meet New York State mandated ENL units of study.
  • ELLs at the elementary level are pulled 4xs per week during I-Block. ELLs requiring a second unit of ENL will receive services in the classroom and can receive virtual services on Wednesdays to assist with classwork.
  • ELLs at the middle and high school levels are scheduled for one or two periods of service ENL services 4xs per week and can receive virtual services on Wednesdays to assist with classwork.
  • During the hybrid model of instruction, stand-alone and integrated content instruction will be provided through a combination of in-person and remote (synchronous and asynchronous) lessons.
  • The remote learning portion of their schedule will include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning. 
  • ENL teachers will communicate with the parents/guardians of ELLs in the parents/guardians preferred language on a regular basis. Translators will be utilized to support teacher-parent meetings (using Google Meets) where appropriate. 
  • The District will host its annual ENL Parent Workshop remotely in late September/early October.

Parental Involvement

The home environment adds a new level of complexity when it comes to parent involvement in the learning process. Only you, your child, and your teacher can find the right balance of parental involvement. In most cases, our recommendation is to give your child just a touch more independence that you may be comfortable with.

Reaching Out for Support

School staff are available to families. Use email and/or phone calls to contact any of our staff . If you are not sure who to contact, reach out to your principal, and they can connect you with someone who can help.

Expectations

Teachers and students should follow these guidelines to ensure productive, respectful continuity of instruction. 

  • Practice Social Distancing. The reason we will continue to use Google Classroom is to enhance the practice of social distancing, in order to prevent the spread of the virus. We suggest that you do not encourage congregations at each other’s homes to do work, socialize, etc. — we want you to stay safe and healthy.
  • Focus and engage. Video and video conferences are an extension of your classroom environment.  Please take great care to ensure the same standards of appropriate classroom behavior apply. These standards include what you say, how you appear on screen, and what is visible in the background. 
  • Respect. Respect the privacy of other participants. Do not take screenshots or pictures of your teacher or fellow students. Do not make any audio or video recordings. These behaviors violate our policies and could result in disciplinary action. Also the use of headphones when engaging in a voice/video chat, will help to ensure the privacy of others.

Teachers will communicate to the administration inappropriate behavior that violates our

Technology Acceptable Use Policy and Student Code of Conduct. Appropriate action will be enforced if necessary.

Reminder: Audio or video recording of a Lakeland Staff member or other student(s) without his/her permission is a violation of the District Code of Conduct.

Instructional Guidelines

Instructional guidelines are as follows:

  • We recognize that student-teacher interactions are an important part of the teaching and learning process.  Google Classroom tools including Google Hangouts/Meet are our means of connection to students and a form of checking in, especially for wellness. Teachers will meet synchronously with students who are working from home according to the schedules above.  These meetings are opportunities for teachers to connect with students as well as answer questions, explain assignments, offer feedback, or provide direct instruction and support daily interactions.   
  • Daily communication is expected and new content updates are to be provided according to teachers’ schedules and lesson planning.
  • We are aware of the limited paper and ink available to families and we will attempt to reduce the need to print paper materials whenever possible.   
  • For grades UPK, the focus will be on ELA, Math and foundational skills..
  • Teachers will monitor student progress to ensure participation and check-in with students if they are struggling or non-participatory. Teachers will keep track of students' work, and stay connected.  They will reach out to students/families if a child is not participating in some way. Teachers can consult with support staff for additional assistance as needed. We understand that non-participation in some cases may be the result of an impact due to COVID-19.
  • Ongoing feedback will be provided in a timely manner.  Feedback is formative in nature, should be ongoing and should be shared with the student. Examples of feedback can be in the form of an exit ticket, to gather information on learning, or in Q/A format to account for understanding to the extent possible. 
  • Academic Integrity: Each student is responsible for his/her own work. Academic misconduct, such as plagiarism or cheating, will result in an academic  sanction which may include a grade of "zero" for the assignment or test. The parent(s) or guardian(s) will be notified of the offense.  Here is Lakeland’s Code of Conduct.

Attendance and Chronic Absenteeism  

Teachers will utilize eSchool to track student attendance.  Attendance for each student will be recorded all days school is in session whether the student is scheduled to attend in person or is working remotely. In order to be marked “present” a student must meet the following criteria:

 

In Person

Remote

The student must be physically or virtually in the classroom when attendance is taken.  If a student is tardy or absent regular practices will be followed.

  • The student must be present for a scheduled Google Meet; OR
  • The student must complete a teacher created check in form; OR
  • The student must demonstrate engagement by completing assignments; OR
  • The teacher has made contact with the student or a parent and none of the above criteria can be met due to technology issues, etc.

The Comprehensive Student Attendance Policy, linked here, will be in effect.

Expectations for Student Cameras in the Virtual Classroom

Students are expected to keep their cameras on during remote instruction.  

Students and teachers should be mindful of the following:

  1. Generally speaking, having students keep their cameras on during instruction is important for student engagement and is a valuable tool for gauging student understanding and adjusting instruction.
  2. Our students may have a myriad of reasons for having their cameras off, including but not limited to, home conditions, anxiety, and insecurity.
  3. For these reasons, we must be sensitive to these valid reasons and flexible in working with these students. A punitive policy is not appropriate and students/families should be encouraged to communicate with the teacher, support staff, or principal to express these concerns

Grading  

Plan for Grading

Grades will be calculated based on policies and procedures in place prior to March of 2020.  This information is available in the student handbooks for all schools and in this Board Policy.  eSchool will be used to record and report student grades.  

Class assessments, both formative and summative, will be determined by teachers.

Final Exams  

At this time final exams will be scheduled for each course.  This will be evaluated on an on-going basis. The exact nature of how these exams will be administered and in what format they will be assigned is yet to be determined.

Standardized Assessments

Grade 3-8 State Assessments

All Grade 3-8 State Assessments for 2021 have been scheduled by the New York State Education Department. 

  • Gr. 3-8 English Language Arts: Tuesday, April 20th through Thursday, April 22nd
  • Gr. 3-8 Mathematics: Tuesday, May 4th through Thursday, May 6th 
  • NYSESLAT Speaking: Monday, April 19th through Friday, May 28th

  • Gr. 4 and 8 Science Performance Test: Tuesday, May 25th through Friday, June 4th
  • Gr. 4 and 8 Science Written Test: Monday, June 7th

Regents Exams

NYSED has only provided a tentative schedule for the administration of the Regents Exams.  January 2021 Regents Exams have been canceled.

AP Exams

AP exams will be administered digitally from June 1-4th and June 7-11th with the exception of Italian, Spanish and Music Theory which will be offered on May 21st.   

Students will test in the same format as their current learning location, remote students will test at home, and four day students will have the option of coming to the building or testing at home, with pre-approval.  There are 3 exams which are exceptions, as Spanish, Italian and Music Theory which are only being offered by the College Board in paper and pencil and therefore MUST take place in the building.  

The AP Exam declination policy will be suspended for students upon request for this school-year only,  as some students may have circumstances which would prevent them from achieving to the best of their ability.

SAT Exams

The 2020-2021 SAT Administration Dates and Deadlines contains the detailed dates and deadlines for registration and SAT administration.

ACT Exams

The 2020-2021 National Test Dates and registration deadlines are detailed on Registration - The ACT Test
