Distance Learning

City School students will participate in distance learning each day, in real time, with their teachers. Instructional materials and lessons will be accessed online using applications provided by City Schools. All students in need will be provided with a laptop to attend classes, access online platforms, complete assignments and communicate with teachers. 


Distance learning for the start of school will follow each student’s individual schedule. All student schedules for the 2020-2021 school year will be available via Campus Portal. Attendance will be taken daily. If your child needs a laptop but was not able to receive one on or before the first day of school, there will be no penalties for lessons they are unable to complete or for missed attendance.  Students and families must notify their school each day they are without a laptop so our records are updated, students are credited and students receive a laptop as soon as one becomes available.

Assessments and tests during virtual learning

Students will take assessments and tests during virtual learning. They help teachers know your child’s strengths, what they have learned, and areas where they may need additional support. Almost all tests and assessments will be given during class time, and teachers will help students log into the tools they need to take the tests
