Learning Guidance and Support for Parents and Guardians

Create a Learning Schedule and Space

Pick one room or place as your child's study space. Moving between areas can be mentally jolting to students since thye will always have new distractions to process and overcome. Establishing one place helps prepare your child's mind and body this is a place to learn.

Share Learning with Teachers

ECS Students have District Gmail and Schoology accounts. Students should check these accounts every day for messages from their teacher(s) about the daily learning expectations. Elementary aged students may need help checking their Gmail account for messages. Educators will also communicate with students about how to share their learning. Students may be asked to:

  • Complete a Schoology Quiz;

  • Submit a document within Schoology;

  • Take a picture of your work and upload it into a Google folder or email it to your teacher;

  • Record a video that shows how you are able to do something;

  • Email a message summarizing your learning;

  • Engage in an online discussion within a Schoology course.

There are are many possibilities for how teachers might invite students to share their learning. Parents and caregivers should be sure they know what their children's teacher(s) expect and then support their student as needed.

Check Progress

Meaningful learning engagement outside of the classroom will not require a big shift in the ways teachers share student progress or in the ways parents and caregivers can check on their child's progress. Email, information, assignments, and grades posted in Schoology and PowerSchool, or other practices already used by teachers and parents will remain available.

Supporting Learning With Technology

Important Responsible Use Guidelines

Eagle County Schools wants to support the best use of technology to support teaching and learning. We value the partnership of parents and guardians when learning occurs outside of the school building. As an important reminder, students and adults should be sure to:

  • Use respectful behavior and language.

  • Stick to appropriate topic discussions.

  • Send only appropriate video transmissions.

  • Use only appropriate icon, emoji, and avatar submissions.

  • Wear school appropriate clothing if attending meetings via video.

  • Be honest and use academic integrity by not plagiarizing or copying others’ work

  • Not falsify information about oneself or impersonate others online.

When everyone remembers to act kindly, show consideration for others, and treat one another online as they wish to be treated in person, students and adults alike will be able to focus on learning.
