Student Expectations

We recognize utilizing a virtual learning environment may be challenging for our students. However, in order to ensure that students have positive learning experiences, we expect each student to engage appropriately, including

· adhering to the RCPS Code of Conduct.

· participating in synchronous sessions daily and on time.

· being respectful of others.

· refraining from participating in any behaviors that may result in a distraction from learning for yourself or others, including playing music, making gestures or signs, interrupting others, using inappropriate language, and/or wearing inappropriate clothing.

· raising your(virtual) hand to speak and being patient while waiting to be recognized by the teacher.

· completing assignments and assessments as directed by the teacher in a timely manner.

· using the chat box only to ask questions and to respond to prompts when directed by your teacher.

· never giving out your password to another student.
