Virtual Days-Emergency Closing and Delays/Changes in Learning Environment

When Auburn Career Center High School closes, iSTEM brick and mortar location closes; however, learning continues for all iSTEM students.  Students are required to be “in” class virtually with their teachers. All learning activities will continue uninterrupted including PBL, blogging, email, Twitter posts, virtual collaboration, engagement, etc., via Google Classroom.  Teachers will require students to report to school the following day demonstrating work was continued, completed and electronically submitted on such days.  As a result of this practice,  iSTEM will not have to make up hours or days due to school closures.

 

iSTEM will notify the following television stations of this change in learning environment:  Fox 8, Channel 19 – WOIO, Channel 3 – WKYC, Channel 5 – WEWS

 

Information concerning changes in learning environment due to emergency situations can also be found on the iSTEM website.


Parents will be notified of changes in learning environment via a pre-recorded telephone message/text delivered to the phone number on file. Parents and students are responsible for knowing about changes in learning environments.  Pol. 8210
