Virtual Day for High Schoolers + State ACT for Juniors
April 8th, 2020
Why is BPS having a Virtual School Day? To give Juniors the most similar ACT testing environment to that of a national test day and to limit the disruption of the school day for all secondary students to one day as opposed to six days of testing required to administer the ACT during a regular school day.
Which grades will participate in the Virtual Day apply to? 9th, 10th, & 12th.
Why not 11th graders? All BPS Juniors will be ON CAMPUS to take the ACT.
What is Virtual School Day? The HS, BLC and 9GC sites are “closed” and our 9th, 10th, and 12th-grade students will complete work from home on Canvas.
Where do we find the assignments? Assignments will be located on Canvas.
What will HS/9GC/BLC teachers do during Virtual School Day? Teachers will work their regular contract day on-site and assist with the administration and proctoring of the ACT for BHS Juniors.
Most students stay home on Virtual School days to complete the assignment? Students do not need to remain at home but the school will be closed; however, students must submit all assignments on April 8th unless prior arrangements have been made.
What if we do not have the Internet at home? Some Canvas assignments can be set to be available offline. Be sure to communicate with teachers prior to April 8th if needed to ensure this option is in place or other arrangements have been made.
What will the school day and transportation schedule look like for Juniors? Juniors will follow regular arrival and dismissal times and buses will run as usual.
