OSWEKEN — Six Nations elementary school students will not be heading back to the classroom until at least November.
This according to a statement from Kathleen Manderville, Director of Six Nations Federal Schools, Indigenous Services. Students will choose between two options: working online fully from home or in print-off paper work packages from home.
All students working online from home will be provided an iPad and given 310 minutes of learning per day with daily whole group guided instructions, multiple posted lessons and directs support through daily check-ins with dedicated teachers specifically assigned to the working from home model. Students from Grades K-8 will be led through at least 2 live-streamed group lessons per day. Younger students will be paired in smaller working groups for posted workfrom-home tasks. Older students could be guided through as many as 4 live streamed group lessons per day.
The second option is for students to pick up weekly work packages prepared per grade level. These work packages will address all curriculum areas and students with special education needs will get packages based on their Individual Education Plans. Each Monday pick up of new packages and drop off of completed packages will take place in a curbside pick-up model at a designated school location (alternate arrangements will be made for those without access to transportation – please provide this information when choosing this model). Scheduled group lessons by teleconference will be held twice weekly and attendance will be required.
As well as individual check-in by phone will be scheduled for each student twice weekly to provide support and feedback. There will also be Special Education Remote Learning online or by phone for students with special needs, prepared by need. Further details can be found on the SNGR Facebook page or by calling Six Nations Schools to inform of students choice of program. Students officially return to school-at-home on September 3, 2020.
