Student Expectations

Power OFF or Internet OUTAGE for Teacher Only

  • Contact school according to your school’s emergency procedures to report power is out.

  • Send a message to students to engage in asynchronous learning activities.

    • Ask school or a colleague to send a message if not able to do so.

 

NOTE:  If power or the internet goes out during class, contact the school.  If your power or internet company provides you with an estimate for when power or internet is expected to be back, alert the school with that information.

 

In preparation for a power or internet outage situation that affects you but not students, develop a set of asynchronous learning activities -- a “bag of tricks” that students can access on their own.  Post these materials in Schoology (or SeeSaw, as appropriate) and show students how to find them.

  • Log into Schoology.

  • Continue work on previously assigned learning activities.

  • Participate in asynchronous learning activities that are posted in Schoology course(s).




 

NOTE:  If a teacher’s power or internet goes out during class, log off of Zoom.  Work on known learning activities or assignments, or on other asynchronous learning activities that are posted in Schoology course(s).

 

Elementary students should try logging back into the Zoom session after 15 minutes, and then try again in 30 minutes, in 60 minutes, and 90 minutes.  After 90 minutes, plan for asynchronous learning for the remainder of the day.

 

Secondary students should try logging back in after 15 minutes and again after 30.  Students should attend other classes according to their regular schedule.
