Remote Learning FAQ

What is Remote Learning?

Remote learning provides an opportunity for students and teachers to remain connected and engaged with their course content while working from locations outside the physical school environment for a designated period of time due to an unforeseen situation. Opportunities for remote learning are typically linked to an emergency situation that poses a threat to student safety. Transitioning to remote learning can keep students on track so that when they return to physical school environments, they will not have a lot of make-up work to do and they will be ready for any scheduled assessments. Many of the requirements in a traditional classroom environment will be in play for remote learning environments, and the goal is to adhere to as many state and local requirements as possible.

When will Scholars’ Academy reopen?

  • Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Department of Education Chancellor, Richard A. Carranza announced that all schools are moving to a remote learning model, with a projected reopening of school buildings the week of April 20, 2020

How will my child engage in remote learning?

  • Each grade and cohort will receive a new “Remote Learning Schedule” that will allow students to access their teachers for instruction and support in real time
  • Teachers will be using a variety of platforms and resources such as Google classroom, Google sites, PupilPath, Zoom, and Instructional Sites
  • Weekly assignments will be posted on PupilPath and will be visible to families and students

How will my child be graded during this time?
