 Pioneer Valley HS Virtual Summer School Expectations 2020

Summer school will be offered during a 3-week mini session from June 9 through June 29. Courses will be taught via distant learning through either the online PLATO program, or the online CANVAS platform. Courses will be for students who have previously taken a class and earned a grade of D’ or F’ for the semester. HEALTH will be offered for those students who have not been able to fit the class into their regular school day schedule.

STUDENTS- Summer School is voluntary and should only be taken if they can meet the expectations noted. The expectation for students is to log in and actively participate daily. They must be willing and able to give their best efforts for all 15 summer school days. Students must have access to technology and the internet to use their school issued laptop or own personal devices to complete work. Incoming 9th graders taking Health will have to come into the school to check out a school issued laptop on Monday, June 8th from 9-2 pm.

Students in OTCR- Students will be assigned a morning or afternoon session to complete an online PLATO course, or continue an existing class that they were enrolled in during the regular school year. Students MUST complete the course assigned during the summer, or risk that course changing curriculum and not being offered during the fall (thus, all completed work could go to waste and not be transferrable). Once completed, students would be done for the summer.

Students in “Live” Classes- Students will be assigned a morning and/or afternoon session based on their course request(s). The expectation for students is to log on daily during the designated session assigned. If a student misses the presentation of a lesson, the expectation is to communicate with the teacher that you will be viewing the recorded version and completing the work as assigned. Failure to log in and/or complete work in a timely manner will result in the school notifying your parent of the danger of not passing the summer course. If technology is an issue, contact the Tech Support line noted below and notify your teacher immediately for assistance.

Tech Support will continue through summer school with the assistance of our Computer Lab Specialist who can help with OTCR/PLATO related items. The District IT team will continue to assist with school laptop repairs- Students can bring in a tablet for repair any day from 9 am to 3 pm in the PVHS library to Ms. Apple. Help Line support for student tablet issues will be provided by Ms. Leornas who can be reached at (805) 922-1305 extension 5099 (English), 5088 (Spanish), 5077 (Mixteco).

If you have any questions or concerns, please email gdickinson@smjuhsd.org, or call (805) 922-1305, x5703.
