Remote Learning


Our staff is super excited to dig in and deliver top notch instruction to our students virtually this quarter. Below you will find helpful information related to our school's distance learning details. 

 Attendance & Engagement

Students are expected to be in attendance and engaged via distance learning for all of their scheduled classes periods.

Attendance is defined as one or a combination of the following: distance learning instruction, distance learning completion of assignments on APEX with teacher/class or independently, and other methods of distance learning developed by non- APEX teachers. Daily attendance at the times listed below for periods 1-8 are expected of all students. Attendance will be recorded in Teacher Access Center (TAC). 

Grades will be recorded in Jump Rope/TAC and, therefore, students and guardians will be able to check Home Access Center (HAC) for updates.

Below you will find the building schedule for distance learning at JMS. Lunch will be as scheduled which means each student will get a 30 minute break during the day. In addition, instructors will work collaboratively to assign a minimum of one (1) hour of extended learning activities per night.

Classroom Instructional Resources

As a school & district, we will be utilizing two platforms to deliver distance learning. Those two main platforms will be Zoom and Google Classroom.

Over e-mail, your student will be provided the code to join our school-wide Google Classroom. The Google Classroom will contain all zoom links for all courses. The link will remain the same day to day. Your students homeroom teacher or team member will be reaching out over to assure that you are getting information via e-mail, have the provided Chromebook, and have internet access. If you contact JMS, we can provide over email step by step directions on how to access our Google Classroom for students at JMS. 


Virtual Learning Behavioral Expectations

At Jefferson, we use PBIS (Positive Intervention Behavior and Supports) even while learning distantly. Our staff and PBIS team has worked to define what student behavior should look like even online. Below you will find our school-wide expectations for distance learning. Our teachers will be awarding students "Golden Jaguars" for showcasing exemplar behavior from the matrix. Those names monthly will be listen our our Admin Corner page.
