Parent's Guide to Full Remote Learning
Our District's Teaching & Learning Department has created a Parent's Guide to Full Remote Learning. This document provides a wide-array of topics that will assist parents as you continue to support your child(ren) during this full-remote learning environment.
Some of the topics addressed include: common definitions; instructional technology resources; general requirements and expectations; grading and feedback; communication; student engagement and attendance; and student schedules.
Canvas is the system that RLAS-116 uses as its Learning Management System for all students. It’s basically a one-stop-shop platform for instruction and learning.
Teachers and students interact through the Canvas tool by posting of live and recorded instruction links, posting of assignments and resources, and messaging. Students submit their assignments via this same tool.
Canvas may also be used by parents to monitor their student’s engagement and progress, as well as a central means to communicate with teachers.
Below are some resources you may find helpful as you and your child navigate the Canvas system.

Seesaw is a tool that may be used by elementary classroom teachers. It’s an easy way for teachers and students to record and share what’s happening in the classroom. Seesaw gives students a place to document their learning, be creative and learn how to use technology. Students may journal and add items like photos, videos, drawings, and notes.
Zoom is a video conferencing system that will be used for live instruction sessions during remote learning. Teachers and students interact in whole- and small-group discussions.
