Email: Check your emails!! Read them and respond when needed. All students in e-Academy work from home, and email is the main source of communication. All grade reports and course updates are sent by email. Students should check their email on a daily basis as teachers often send announcements and updates. It is also expected that students and parents and/or guardians reply to emails when necessary.
Google Classroom: All e-Academy students will be added to the e-Academy Google Classroom. This will be a space for resources, support, chats, and announcements. Be sure to accept this invitation when you receive it.
Time: Students should be working 60-90 minutes each weekday in each course to stay on pace. Once students start falling behind, it's too easy to stop working. Most teachers leave open their assignments and assessments all semester. If students need any extensions, that is determined by the teacher for high school courses. There are no extensions for middle grade students unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Grade Reports: Grades are checked every two weeks on Thursdays and/or Fridays and recorded in a spreadsheet. These grades are emailed home. Many times the grades are recorded before some of the work has been graded by the teacher, so don't panic if it's different than what is posted online. All students can see their grades in Canvas or Edgenuity. Parents/Guardians can have observation access to these Learning Management Systems to see grades and missing work.
Technology / Devices: All e-Academy students must have their own devices and internet. We are not able to loan out tech devices to students at this time.
