Meeting Student Needs

Teachers recognize that there are no two students that are alike. Each student has different circumstances, a unique skill set and their own interests. This is why the ability to remain adaptable and meet each student where they are is an important quality all of us should have. This is magnified when we work with students who are at-risk of falling behind academically. It is at this point that we must turn to alternate approaches to meet their needs.

Crosbyton Secondary Teachers do a great job of providing programming and instruction to help at-risk students so that they can eventually graduate. Always remember that every student can learn, just not on the same day or in the same way.

Have a great week and as always... It's a Great Day to be a Chieftain!

Crosbyton CISD Virtual Learning Guidelines

The virtual learning model is different from the remote learning in the spring. The virtual model will be much more rigorous, and daily attendance will be required. Crosbyton CISD will use Google Classroom as our virtual learning platform. Students will be required to have a reliable internet connect, and a device capable of running the Google Classroom application.

Key aspects of the virtual learning model include:

  • Students will be expected to follow the full instructional day plan according to the provided schedule. Secondary students will complete at least 240 minutes per day.
  • Content learning and activities will be planned by the classroom teacher to make sure each student receives their full instructional minutes.
  • Virtual Learning model may have a separate instructional design, but will use the same scope and sequence as Face-to-Face learning.
  • The virtual learning assignments may look different, but they will cover the same content and skills as on-campus instruction.
  • Learning opportunities will be personalized to meet individual needs of students that receive specialized services.

Students that choose to participate in virtual learning will be required to remain in virtual learning until the end of the grading period, and they waive participation and attendance in extracurricular activities. Certain elective courses will require attendance in face-to-face instruction. If a student chooses virtual learning, and is enrolled in one of these courses, the student will have to change their schedule.
