Student Progress

We are all concerned about students not finishing classes in a timely manner, being behind for their graduation requirements, or not meeting the 1.5 credit minimum for each term. Many people in and out of our schools are trying to find ways to help. We sent out 1st term data in a letter this week (12/7/2020) to talk about how our Innovations' students are doing and to offer some ideas to help them improve.

Please click https://innovations.slcschools.org/academics/innovations-course-options/ for the letter in Spanish and English and click https://innovations.slcschools.org/our-school/class-meeting-schedule/documents/20202021-class-meeting-schedule/english/ to view our live class meetings. Please reach out to us if you have any questions. Go Inno! pam.pedersen@slcschools.org

Hello families:

By now I hope you have heard that we can finally invite students back into the building on February 8! We are excited to share some plans to make the time here at school safe and productive for students who choose to come.

Protocols are being developed which will be followed and will teach to students coming into the building. I will share some of that information with you now. A survey will also be sent this Monday, January 25th, asking you to pick how you will finish the rest of the school year. There are options to consider. Please talk to your student(s) to decide what is best for your family.

Options include coming to school two days a week, continuing with remote learning, or having some classes in-person and some online. These individual plans will be made with the help of your mentor teacher. You will choose one of these options on the survey you will receive.

If students choose to attend two days a week: 

  • Last names starting with A-L will attend Monday and Thursday. 
  • Last names starting with M-Z will attend Tuesday and Friday. 
  • Wednesdays will continue as remote learning days for all students.

Here are some factors to take into consideration as you choose how to attend school on and after Feb. 8.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

  • All students and staff will wear masks over the nose and mouth as required by the health department and CDC.
  • Social distancing will be observed as much as possible.
  • Sick students will be required to stay home.
  • Classroom sinks will be used to wash hands when entering the room.
  • After a student uses a desk/computer they will wipe it down and clean the area.

MOVING

  • Students will enter the building through the main doors on the Southside of the building.
  • Students will exit the building down the West stairs.
  • Directional arrows will be placed in our hallway to help students move in safe ways.

FOOD 

  • Sack lunches will be served each school day. Lunch is free for all students at this time. 
  • There will be NO FOOD allowed in any classroom, but students can have their personal water bottle.
  • Vending machines and college cafeterias will not be available at this time.

CLASSROOMS

  • Students will work and study in Innovations' classrooms - not in hallways or in the college areas.
  • Class meetings will be held in each teacher's classroom as scheduled. Mentor meeting will be in person.
  • Students who choose to remain virtual will have the same schedule they are currently following.

TRANSPORTATION

  • The CTC buses will be running from the boundary high schools. The timing of the routes will be different and will be announced closer to Feb. 8th.

With the careful actions of staff and students, we don't anticipate any COVID outbreaks. Many staff members are receiving vaccinations. However, there is a plan through the county health department that will help with contact tracing or procedures if we did need to return to remote learning only. Thank you for carefully reading through this material. I look forward to seeing many of you soon.

Hola familias:

¡A estas alturas espero que hayan escuchado que finalmente podemos invitar a los estudiantes de regreso al edificio el 8 de febrero! Estamos emocionados de compartir algunos planes para hacer que el tiempo aquí en la escuela sea seguro y productivo para los estudiantes que decidan venir.

Se están desarrollando protocolos que se seguirán y enseñarán a los estudiantes que ingresen al edificio. Compartiré parte de esa información con ustedes ahora. También se enviará una encuesta este lunes 25 de enero pidiéndole que elija cómo terminará el resto del año escolar. Hay opciones a considerar. Hable con su (s) estudiante (s) para decidir qué es lo mejor para su familia.

Las opciones incluyen venir a la escuela dos días a la semana, continuar con el aprendizaje remoto o tener algunas clases en persona y otras en línea. Estos planes individuales se realizarán con la ayuda de su maestro mentor. Elegirás una de estas opciones en la encuesta que recibirás.

Si los estudiantes eligen asistir dos días a la semana:

  • Los apellidos que comienzan con AL asistirán los lunes y jueves.
  • Los apellidos que comienzan con MZ asistirán los martes y viernes.
  • Los miércoles continuarán como días de aprendizaje remoto para todos los estudiantes.

Aquí hay algunos factores a tener en cuenta al elegir cómo asistir a la escuela a partir del 8 de febrero.

SALUD Y SEGURIDAD

  • Todos los estudiantes y el personal usarán máscaras sobre la nariz y la boca según lo requieran el departamento de salud y los CDC.
  • Se observará en la medida de lo posible el distanciamiento social.
  • Los estudiantes enfermos deberán quedarse en casa.
  • Los lavabos del salón se usarán para lavarse las manos al entrar al salón.
  • Después de que un estudiante use un escritorio / computadora, lo limpiará y limpiará el área.

MOVIENTE

  • Serán estudiantes entrar el edificio a través de las puertas principales en el lado sur del edificio.
  • Serán estudiantes salida el edificio por las escaleras del oeste.
  • Se colocarán flechas direccionales en nuestro pasillo para ayudar a los estudiantes a moverse de manera segura.

COMIDA

  • Se servirán almuerzos en bolsa todos los días escolares. El almuerzo es gratis para todos los estudiantes en este momento.
  • No se permitirá COMIDA en ningún salón, pero los estudiantes pueden tener su botella de agua personal.
  • Las máquinas expendedoras y las cafeterías de la universidad no estarán disponibles en este momento.

SALAS DE CLASES

  • Los estudiantes trabajarán y estudiarán en las aulas de Innovations, no en los pasillos ni en las áreas universitarias.
  • Las reuniones de clase se llevarán a cabo en el aula de cada maestro según lo programado. La reunión del mentor será en persona.
  • Los estudiantes que elijan permanecer virtuales tendrán el mismo horario que están siguiendo actualmente.

TRANSPORTE

  • Los autobuses de CTC saldrán de las escuelas secundarias fronterizas. El horario de las rutas será diferente y se anunciará más cerca del 8 de febrero.

Con las acciones cuidadosas del personal y los estudiantes, no anticipamos ningún brote de COVID. Muchos miembros del personal están recibiendo vacunas. Sin embargo, existe un plan a través del departamento de salud del condado que ayudará con el rastreo de contactos o los procedimientos si tuviéramos que regresar únicamente al aprendizaje remoto. Gracias por leer atentamente este material. Espero ver a muchos de ustedes pronto.
