In-Person and Hybrid Model:
CTE will begin the year with a hybrid schedule. As a CTE center, our instructional suites exceed the square footage per student standards of a typical high school classroom. In addition, we have several computer labs and conference rooms that can be used to create alternative instructional spaces if needed. As a result, we are able to accommodate the full cohort in each session (AM or PM) for in-person instruction on their scheduled days.
Beginning March 1, 2021 CTE will increase student in-person learning to 4 times each week. Students will attend class for 2 hours 25 minutes each day with the exception of Wednesdays where students will learn remotely.
- Our AM session will include all students typically scheduled in the morning (second year students and all AM ICT, Services and Trades, Baking, and New Visions Health Professions students). The AM in-person session will be 7:50-10:15 AM.
- Our PM session will include all students typically scheduled in the afternoon (first year students and all PM ICT, Services and Trades, Baking, and TASC Prep students). The PM in-person session will be 12:00 – 2:25 PM.
During a 2-week cycle, students will have 8 days of in-person instruction and 2 days of remote instruction.
Students may earn 4 credits per session.
Should we return to full in-person instruction, the CTE schedule would adjust to two daily 2.5 hour sessions, and four credit hours per session will continue.
In the event that CTE needs to transition to a fully remote instructional model, students will maintain their class schedule. Classes will include daily teacher facilitated synchronous instruction and asynchronous learning experiences such as pre-recorded lab demonstrations or instructional videos. Maintaining close student contact and engagement will be a priority with an emphasis on relationship building and meeting individual student learning and social/emotional needs.
The CTE continuity of learning plan includes, attendance, grading and instructional technology expectations. It includes teacher and student expectations for daily use of technology to engage with content and complete/submit assignments regardless of the instructional delivery model. Schoology will be the platform that students and teachers use for instruction. Expectations such as number/type of grades per quarter, academic and dual credit documentation, teacher contact with student and parents, deadlines, etc. are included.
