Structures for Student Success

  • Craft developmentally appropriate learning schedules or weekly/daily outlines that are flexible enough to meet individual student needs while providing some predictability for students, families and educators. (For instance, in virtual delivery models, do not make plans that require more than 1-2 hours of synchronous time per day for each student.)  
  • Establish consistent expectations of, and supports for, teachers in terms of providing learning opportunities for their students. 
  • Create expectations for teachers to establish office hours, check-ins and provide feedback to students. For virtual delivery systems, technical support should also be available synchronously during the times you expect students to login to any live sessions to help them with technical issues should they arise.
