Good day Westinghouse community.

Please use the link below to type your OSIS number to identify your cohort for either blended learning or remote learning.

Your cohort identification indicates your learning preference based on the survey you completed and the environment you will receive your instruction. If you did not complete the learning preference survey, the student will be defaulted to receive Blended learning instruction.

Blended Learning Model: The blended learning model incorporates a combination of both on-site instruction at the school and remote instruction at home on the days the students are not scheduled to be on-site at the school. The specific days on which students will be on-site vs. remote will be determined by the programming model selected by the school and will be communicated well in advance to the students and families.

Fully Remote Learning Model: The fully remote model uses only synchronous and asynchronous online learning and does not include in-person learning. Students who have opted to learn fully remote will be online with their teacher(s) every day engaging in both synchronous and asynchronous learning. The school will coordinate programming in order to coordinate learning across all grades/subjects.

Cohort “A” or Cohort “B” are blended learning students that will receive in person instruction. Please note that we will not rotate days as other schools have opted to follow. All cohort “A” students will attend school on Mondays and Thursdays. All cohort “B” students will attend school on Tuesdays and Fridays. All students will be remote on Wednesdays.

Cohort D students will receive their instruction 100% remotely. These students should not report to school but must be prepared to receive their remote instruction at the start of school.

Below is a table that indicates the days students are scheduled to attend school either in person or remote.

 

Please be advised that school is scheduled to begin remotely on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, for all students.  We will begin our in-person instruction for blended learning students (Cohorts A and B) beginning on  Monday, September 21, 2020.

Should you choose to switch from a blended learning model to 100% remote, please complete the survey linked below:
