DISTANCE LEARNING OVERVIEW
Distance Learning procedures at BPS strive to ensure continuity of services. Students will mirror their in-person academic day at home. Students will engage in learning activities that both address academic gaps based on their individual needs as well as progress through grade level Oklahoma Academic Standards.
Students will be required to complete all coursework and feedback will be given. Teachers will be required to record at least one grade per subject, per week. To ensure access for all students, devices and/or internet access will be provided for students with a need.
BPS recognizes the value of in-person, relationship-based learning, acknowledges that distance learning is not intended to serve as a replacement but rather in times of necessity, can be utilized to continue academic progress. Students with an IEP who meet defined criteria may be able to participate in daily, in-person learning.
Distance learning will be implemented in the event of a school cancellation WHEN there is adequate notice to check out all necessary technology to both students and staff. In the event there is not adequate notice, Brick to Click may be implemented.
