What does remote learning look like at SCH?
In fall 2020, SCH Academy was able to reopen in phases using a combination of on-campus and SCH@Home. Our clear preference is to have on-campus education; however, we must be prepared to transition to SCH@Home for distanced learning online when necessary. This is detailed in our Roadmap to Reopening plan from September 2020.
As educators, we have learned and grown exponentially since deploying SCH@Home last spring when the state issued COVID mandates and schools were shuttered. Feedback from parents, students, and faculty have helped shape our remote learning plan along with robust professional development over the summer months. Our faculty have extended themselves to explore, discover, and adapt in ways never before imagined. They will be combining their expertise with many of the distance-learning giants in the field. The strong partnership SCH enjoys with its families will allow us, as a school community, to meet with success during these trying times and beyond.

OUR approach: synchronous & ASYNCHRONOUS Learning
SCH faculty took time during the summer of 2020 to learn from Global Online Academy to reinforce online teaching essentials. They will use platforms to create feelings of connection by showing their faces and voices (with tools such as Flipgrid, Loom, Screencastify, Peardeck, and Seesaw). Teachers are working to balance between synchronous (live) and asynchronous (recorded) learning, adapting to create an online learning experience that is interactive, engaging, and academic.
