Online Option for 2020-2021
Shenandoah School Corporation is committed to all students having access to a quality education this fall. SSC will be offering an online option during the Fall Semester for students who have health concerns and/or are not comfortable being on campus at this time. While we believe that the most effective learning environment for students is in the classroom with a highly effective teacher, we realize that this is a unique time and will require all of us to make adjustments. As a result, SSC will offer a schedule tailored to students who wish to participate in online only instruction. Since the logistics of providing virtual instruction can be challenging, it will not be possible to offer certain classes, and as a result, students who choose this option will have limited choices for their class schedule. The teachers, principals, and guidance counselors are working hard to make sure all students receive their core classes and suitable electives. This information is still being configured, but will be shared with students and parents as soon as it is available.
To ensure students are seeing and hearing their teachers on a regular basis, lessons will be recorded and uploaded onto Canvas each day. Students should expect opportunities to practice concepts, receive feedback, and illustrate their learning through assignments, quizzes and tests. Additionally, teachers will be available to provide assistance during their prep time and when available throughout the school day.
We are asking that elementary and middle school students commit to at least one quarter and high school students commit to one semester of online instruction. If you are interested in taking advantage of this option, please make sure you have first completed your student’s 2020-2021 Regular Registration. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please e-mail email@example.com.
Once this has been completed, please indicate your student’s interest by filling out the Online Registration Form. The information from the form will be shared with building principals and guidance counselors. Once the online schedule has been completed, you will be contacted by e-mail with further instructions.
To give adequate time to prepare instruction, we are asking parents to make this decision by next Friday, July 24th at 11:59 p.m. This will allow our staff time to assign your student to their virtual class(es). If you have specific questions about your student, or their unique situation, please contact the building administration. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the page here.
