Daily Schedule

Jones Elementary Online Learning Instructional Day 

8:30 am - 12:00 pm  Synchronous & Asynchronous Learning 

During this time, teachers are instructing live in real time. Teachers will be providing demonstrations, facilitating collaboration between students, giving guidance and support, and checking for understanding.  

Some of this time will be the entire class together, other times it may be just half the class, or a small group of students. When students are not working directly with the teacher they will be given tasks to do that are connected to the lesson. 

Wellness Breaks (30 minutes) will be built into this time. Teachers might do all 30 minutes together or separate them into multiple shorter breaks throughout the morning.  

Weekly Physical Education and Social Emotional Learning lessons will be scheduled during this time as well. 

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Lunch 

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm  Synchronous & Asynchronous Learning Continued 

Additional teaching time is built in to provide more opportunities for small group instruction, conferring with students, and/or teacher-initiated office hours, while the remainder of students complete independent work. Your child’s teacher will be sending out a schedule that includes how they are specifically organizing the Synchronous & Asynchronous portion of the instructional day. 

+ 2 hours  Asynchronous Learning  

Students will continue their learning through independent practice. Teachers will review the asynchronous learning assignments with students at the end of each instructional day. These tasks can be completed right after the Online School day, later in the evening, or even the next morning before school starts.  

Synchronous learning refers to time when teachers and students are engaged in learning at the same time.  

Asynchronous learning refers to when students learn/practice material without the teacher directly monitoring.  

* Our schedule is designed to provide more flexibility for families compared to our traditional on site instructional day. We know that families have been impacted by this pandemic in different ways and may need additional modifications to support the current reality at home. Please reach out to your child’s teacher directly once they have shared their classroom schedule so that they can customize the learning for your specific situation.
