Learn@Home Planning Resources for Teachers
Richmond County School System
In anticipation for the district’s switch to an all Learn@Home environment, online teachers should continue to follow their current schedule. Face to Face teachers will begin to instruct their students asynchronously. In addition to asynchronous assignments, the teacher will make himself/herself available for synchronous support at one designated time each week following the schedule established by your school’s administration. Synchronous support is an optional support session for the teacher to provide real-time support. Students who cannot attend synchronous support sessions will not be penalized. Remember that your F2F students are in a unique situation because they were not given technology devices. Extending compassion over compliance will help build a positive culture in your Learn@Home class. The RCSS Learn@Home Plan and resources can be found on our website at www.rcboe.org/learn@home.
