Instructional Time & Schedules
Time guidelines and weekly schedules are in place to guide instructional planning and student participation. Lessons are designed to fit within the following instructional time expectations and schedules. Weekly lessons integrate both real-time and non-real time tasks, as well as online and offline tasks.
Classes do not meet live daily!
Elementary Schedule: Elementary teachers plan four CORE lessons a week, Monday - Thursday, that fall within the instructional time expectations. Teachers design EXTENSION tasks for reinforcement and enrichment each day that students can choose to do outside of the instructional minute expectations each day. Fridays are WORKSHOP days. On these days, students choose from a menu of tasks to extend weekly learning targets.
Secondary Schedule: Teachers plan five CORE lessons a week, that fall within the instructional time expectations. Teachers design EXTENSION tasks each week that students can choose to do outside of the instructional minute expectations. Teachers schedule live sessions based on the class hour in addition to one “office hour” per week. One Live Meet is scheduled for each class to support the delivery of instruction.
When students are participating in live sessions, parental/guardian consent is automatically given for photographic images or recordings to be created and retained by FPS.
