Instructional Material

April 9, 2020

In the event the building closures are extended, Oneida educators have been preparing to transition to extended learning using an iLearning model. The plan consists of a hybrid approach using online contact, class meetings over
the Internet, and independent and guided practice through Google Classroom. This will begin Tuesday, April 14th, 2020.

Public Broadcasting “Learn-at-Home” Programming and Resources

  • “Learn-at-Home” programming is available to students through their local public television station starting Monday, March 23. 
  • The partnership between the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and New York’s nine public television stations will offer PBS educational programming on-air for students from prekindergarten through grade 12 every weekday. 
  • Programming will be available for young children (PreK through grade 4) and older children (grade 5 through grade 12) on different digital channels. Material can be viewed for free over-the-air with a television antenna or on cable. 
  • Parents and educators should check local listings for information about their public television stations’ schedules and channel lineup. As this program continues, stations are planning to offer more specific educational information and resources developed in conjunction with local school districts, BOCES, parents and teachers.


Our teachers have prepared educational materials for your student in light of the recent closure. Our staff has worked hard to ensure students maintain content knowledge and understanding during this time. 

We understand that your child is preparing for required exams or is learning a new, important skill that requires daily repetition.  Our teachers have taken this into consideration when preparing these materials.

 

It has been made clear to our teachers that no new content will be distributed to students, and that students will not be graded for work completed during this closure.  That being said, three unforeseen weeks away from school is a huge disruption in our educational program. 

 

It is critically important that your student continues with a daily routine of learning. This should include the educational materials prepared by your child’s teacher, as well as other daily routines of exercise and purposeful play. 

 

The immediacy and fast-moving nature of this situation made it so the materials could not be distributed to students in person before the decision to close was made.

 

We are offering options to your family in order for students to access these review materials. Families will be encouraged to work together to pick up materials for family and friends. If you can help a friend, help a friend.

 

Pickup-Students may pick up materials Monday, March 16th, at their building from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. 

 

Online-Some middle school and high school work may also be available online. Check your school’s website for more information. 

*NOTE* Any student that was not able to pick up their instructional packets on March 16th from 12-3p.m. had their packet mailed home this afternoon. 

 

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please do not call the buildings as the buildings will be closed and there will be nobody there to answer. Instead, please email your school building’s main office.
