Horizons Alternative High School Learning Plan

Explanation: The purpose of this document is to outline the learning plan for Horizons Alternative High School students. Though school is not in session traditionally, it is the goal of Calumet Public Schools for all of our students to have educational opportunities that allow for academic skills to be maintained, or even advanced.

Online resources, books, packets, and laptops are just a few of the educational opportunities being made available to our students. While a specific time commitment is not required, we hope that you will take a look at what is offered and will consider committing some part of your child’s day, where possible, for these educational activities. We aim to create an effective independent learning plan for our students to sustain/advance their current level of learning. We are confident that with your partnership during this unprecedented time, Horizons Alternative High School students will continue to thrive.

We will be utilizing our Learning Management System called Google Classroom to deliver online content to your student(s). Starting Monday all classes will be available on-line. Teachers are working very hard to make sure you have access to all materials that are needed to complete classes. Students will be able to complete marking period 3 and/or start working on marking period 4 starting March 29, 2020. Students will be able to access teachers via email as well as Mr. Asiala, Tom Blessing, and Linda Tervo. Feel free to email any one of us with questions. If you do not have good internet access and would prefer a paper version of the activities, please contact Joel Asiala at joasiala@clkschools.org or at 906-369-4407.

Special Education: The regular education learning plan for students will be found in Google Classroom for each class. Your child’s special education teacher has reviewed these learning plans. If accommodations and modifications are necessary for your child to access learning during this time, you will receive an email with accommodations and modifications for your child. If you find your child is experiencing difficulty with the learning plan, please email your child’s special education teacher.

 

Classes

In order to get credit for a class:

1. Turn in all required work for that class with at least 70% or better on each assignment.

a. You will have the opportunity to redo work if it is not at a 70% or better. 

2. All course work must be completed.  This means you will not get credit for a course if everything is not turned in

3. Once all work is turned in you will receive a passing grade and receive credit for that class

4. This is an opportunity to continue to receive credit for classes and continue to receive a meaningful educational experience.  You will not receive a fail if your work is not completed but you will not receive the credit for the class unless it is completed.
