This Week at Windsor...part 2
Teachers make a difference at any distance...
Classroom assignments went out this afternoon, if you receive an email without a teacher placement, we need additional registration information, please call our office, 847-398-4297.
With our goal to return to in-person learning through our district transition model, D25 is not grouping students in classes for the purpose of learning pods or neighborhood cohorts. As you know, we spend countless hours each year making sure to place students in classrooms, with teachers, and peers in which we feel they will be the most successful. Our staff works together to ensure a balance in a wide variety of areas including heterogeneously grouped students or students of varying abilities, students with special needs or concerns, social/behavior patterns of students, gender, the number of students assigned per room, learning styles of the students, peer relations, classroom structure, and the instructional styles of the receiving teacher.
Please take a moment to review your child's grade-level schedule linked below. Please keep in mind that there will be some flexibility in the schedule as your child's teacher plans lessons of different lengths and for small instructional groups. For example, while all students log on for live instruction, the instruction may or may not take the full amount of time listed. Depending on the day, a teacher's lesson may be 20 minutes or it may extend to 40 minutes. After the live instruction, the teacher will direct the students on what to do next during their asynchronous time.
The schedules we have included indicate the specific beginning times for each content area in which the students need to be logged on for live instruction.
