The Oregon Department of Education has updated their attendance guidance for online and remote learning students. Students are now required to have meaningful two-way interaction with teachers every day for each period on their schedule. This interaction can be completed in multiple ways for each class depending on the student’s schedule and availability for the day:
Attending live video instruction (RECOMMENDED)
Submitting the daily attendance assignment
This is not required if the student attends live instruction
Posting to a current class discussion if one exists
For example, a middle school student attending the live instruction video session for their Period 3 class will not be counted as present for Period 7 if they don’t also either attend the live instruction video session or complete the attendance assignment for that period.
If students are not able to meet daily attendance for a class prior to 3:00pm, the district will send an automated attendance call. Parents and students can disregard this call if students are able to complete the attendance assignment prior to 11:59pm that day, as teachers will be able to remove the absence the next day.
To report an absence in advance, please leave a voicemail on the attendance line: (503)-356-3721.
Canvas is our learning management system where students can see their assignments, manage due dates on a calendar, turn in assignments, message with teachers and see graded work and feedback.
The parent/guardian account is an 'observer' account which gives access to the student's courses, student calendar and access to grades & feedback from teachers. Parents have their own inbox where they can message with any teacher associated with a course their student is enrolled in.
Please follow the directions on the district Canvas page to set up your account if you have not.
Learning Coaches, students and teachers will work as a team to make sure that learning is progressing.
Where do I see how my student is doing?
Canvas calendar will show you what is due (with assignment details)
Canvas gradebook has grades and feedback from teachers
Emails and phone calls with teachers ParentVUE will have progress report grades
It may be helpful for students to have a planner or calendar to track daily tasks for longer assignments or to plan out their learning day.
We use the ParentSquare platform for district, school and teacher communications, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using their preferred email address and phone number, but you do need to register in order to get app notifications and to change your notification settings.
