Overview

For each grade-level and subject-area, we’ve identified the essential skills and concepts students need to master to be prepared to move on to the next grade or receive the credit necessary for a course. Educators are designing weekly plans for the remainder of the year, including learning activities and resources for each week, that will support students in mastering those skills and concepts. Our plan structure is informed by guidance released from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) around age-appropriate learning time per day, including remote learning time and time spent to complete assignments.

The time frames, listed below, are intended to provide flexibility for students and to ensure that the amount of learning provided is manageable for students in each age-group:

  • Preschool: 30 minutes
  • Grades K through 1: 45 minutes
  • Grades 2 through 3: 60 minutes
  • Grades 4 through 5: 90 minutes
  • Grades 6 through 8: 2.5 hours
  • Grades 9 through 12: 3 hours

Update: We have posted essential skills and concepts for students in the learning resources section for all our grade levels.


What’s New for Student Schedules

  • Schedules for all grade levels will now include daily flex time for educators to check-in with students, plan, collaborate, or complete professional development.
  • Middle and High School schedules will include learning labs, which will provide additional connection points for students and teachers. Examples of learning lab activities during this time may include discussions, live meetings with students, video updates, additional resources, question and answer, or other small group learning support.

Grading

Recognizing that students are not receiving the same amount of instruction this spring, and loss of large amounts of instruction time, we are shifting our progress reporting practices.

Elementary

Students in K-5 will receive a progress report after the end of the school year. The reports will provide a rating of Progressing (P) or Not-Progressing (NP) in core subject areas. Teachers will assess based on progress towards key skills. Students with “P” and “NP” ratings will both move to the next grade level in the fall. Educators who have concerns over a particular student’s progress that could potentially result in an “NP” designation will notify their administrator and the student’s family by May 13. Educators will work on developing a plan to give additional practice of the essential skills for the remainder of the school year.

Middle School

Students in grades 6-8 will receive progress reports at the end of the third and fourth quarters. The reports will provide a rating of Progressing (P) or Non-Progressing (NP) in all subject areas. A “P” will indicate a student has demonstrated progress towards key skills. Students with “P” and “NP” ratings will both move to the next grade level in the fall. Educators who have concerns over a particular student’s progress that could potentially result in an “NP” designation will notify their administrator and the student’s family by May 13. Educators will work on developing a plan to give additional practice of the essential skills for the remainder of the school year. Students enrolled in high school credit courses will follow the high school grading practices.

High School

Students in grades 9-12 will receive an “A” if they regularly engage in the assigned activities and meet the minimum curriculum standards. Students who do not engage with learning assigned by their teacher(s) or do not meet minimum curriculum standards will receive an “I” (for incomplete). All teachers are committed to following up with students often to encourage participation. Incompletes can be made up anytime during summer school or fall semester. Additional guidance will be provided to high school educators, students and families.


Attendance

Ensuring that we know if, how, and when students are engaging with remote learning is critical to providing adequate support for students in this new environment. Educators will monitor student engagement with learning on a weekly basis.

Students may demonstrate engagement in learning in a variety of ways, including participating in online lessons, email correspondence with teachers, or completion of assigned learning.


Learning from Home Guidelines

  • Find a designated space for school work
  • Purposefully plan how to manage distractions (cell phone, TV, etc.)
  • Schedule out your week and use a planner to help keep your classwork organized with your “to do” list
  • Remember to take care of yourself (sleep well, exercise, take breaks, connect with family and friends virtually, etc.)
  • Demonstrate care and consideration for others in the learning environment
  • Online Safety & Appropriate Use of Technology for Elementary Students: English | Español

Available Instructional Applications

Access the comprehensive list of the available instructional applications (PDF) that teachers use as learning resources to guide, support and enhance student learning. Full student access to most of the resources requires a Bellevue School District student login and password. If your student has difficulty accessing assigned classroom resources, please contact your student’s teacher and/or studenthelp@bsd405.org. Please contact our Educational Technology department at educationaltechnology@bsd405.org, if you have questions about the instructional applications.
