The structure of the day depends on the family schedule, the student grade level and the student’s ability to focus. Online learning is not time bound. The younger the student, the more frequently they should take a movement break. In this model, learning is not bound by time or space. Students understand concepts at different paces, and some require more practice then others.
Alternative Learning Rules require students to engage in 1,665 minutes of learning activities per week.
For older students, most of these activities will occur while in Odysseyware. However, they will also spend time reading, writing, studying, taking notes and researching. In addition, they will engage in an onsite lab or Zoom meeting.
For younger students, activities will include at-home projects for art, social studies and science. Time will also be spent with parents reading to students and students reading to parents. In addition, there will be Zoom meetings.
Each student will have a written learning plan that outlines academic goals and learning activities. Advising teachers will work with students and parents to develop a schedule that works best for them.
