A message from Principal Kelly,
Greetings JACCA students and families! We are in an unprecedented time, both in the world and in education. As always, our staff is committed to ensuring each JACCA student has access to rigorous, engaged learning and that families have access to the resources they need. Our staff has been working to reach out to families to ensure we have updated contact information for each student so that your family gets the latest updates from our school and district. If you have not heard from a JACCA staff member, please reach out to Ms. Lee in the main office at (216)838-4000 to provide updated information.
Our JACCA teachers have been working hard to learn best practices and strategies around online learning. JACCA will be utilizing Google Classroom as our main platform to deliver instruction. Students will join Google Classrooms for each class their are taking this semester, and should visit that classroom when the class appears on their schedule to see what the teacher has planned for the day. This may include synchronous (live with the teacher) lessons and activities via Zoom or Google Meet or asynchronous (independent) assignments. All will count towards attendance.
We know that online learning is not easy, and it is new to all of us. We are committed to reflecting and improving upon our practice as educators each week so that we can support our JACCA students and families as best we can. We are in this together!
Most importantly, we hope that you all are taking the necessary steps to stay safe and healthy. We can't wait until we are allowed to see you all again in person.
It is important to understand that expectations for the online learning occuring the fall is DIFFERENT than the expectations for engaged learning that we had in the spring. Attendance will be taken and grades will be issued this quarter. Below is some helpful information to help you understand how attendance will be taken at JACCA.
Google Classroom Guardian Email Summaries
Parents/Guardians can monitor their student's progress by signing up for Guardian Email Summaries. These daily or weekly emails provide information about each class, missing work, assigned work, and class announcements. Reach out to any JACCA teacher to get added. Once you are added for one class, you have access to all of your student's classes. The video below has more information about Google Classroom Guardian Email Summaries.
