Remote Learning

Remote Learning

Remote learning allows teachers to deliver their lessons online, and students can complete assignments, projects, and assessments just like they would in the classroom. This will create an opportunity for students and teachers to interact online and allows students to continue learning subjects and material that are a key part of their curriculum.

Google Classrooms

Students will have access to Google Classrooms to engage in virtual learning. You must create a DOE Student Account to access G Suite Google Classrooms. Please find information on G Suite Google Classroom usage and how to create a DOE account 


Live Sessions via Virtual Conferencing

The NYCDOE allows us multiple ways to hold live virtual sessions with our students. The approved platforms are: Google Meet, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Your child's teacher will provide you information on which platform he/she will be using and how to log in to participate. 

Additional Apps

During the course of Remote Learning, your child's teacher may want to incorporate additional apps for student engagement. some of these apps may include: RazKids, Epic, Padlet, FlipGrid, iLearn and many others. Your child's teacher will provide you more information on which apps your child's class will be using during Remote Learning. 


It is important to engage in Remote Learning whether that be sitting in on live sessions, viewing pre-recorded lessons, submitting work and/ or participating in small group work. Your child's attendance will be taken daily and recorded. 

Submission of Work

Similar to being in the physical school building, school/ home work is required to be completed and submitted when due. Your child's submission of work will count towards his/ her overall grade average. 

Related Service Providers (Children with IEPs)

During Remote Learning, special services are provided virtually. Your child's RSP will reach out to you to schedule sessions. 


All work, assessments and participation count towards your child's overall grade. If you have any questions about submission of work, assessments or breakdown of grading, please reach out to your child's teacher. 

Remote Learning Expectations

During remote learning days (such Inclement Weather Days), your child is expected to complete all assignments provided by the teacher. 

  • Students and families should check Google Classrooms daily for important updates and schedule from their teachers. Your teacher will provide you with the Class Code the first week of school.

  • At-home assignments should be submitted by the teacher's deadline. Assignments will count towards the overall grade. 

  • All students are expected to sign into their class' Morning Meetings. Look for the link in your teacher's Google Classroom. 

  • During 100% remote learning, your teacher may conduct live classes via  Zoom. Check Google Classroom for your live class schedule.

  • When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time, appropriately dressed, and ready to learn. We suggest signing into Google Classroom 5 minutes before class starts to receive the Meeting Details. Please try to reduce background noise and distractions as much as possible. 

Some helpful tips for Remote Learning:

❏ Create a clutter free, distraction free space at home with a table and chair
❏ Set up the area with easy access to notebooks, writing utensils and tech outlets
❏ Schedule in brain breaks, snacks, lunch, movement, bathroom breaks
❏ Just as if your child was going into the school building, create a bedtime and waking up
schedule. And have them change out of their pajamas so they get into the learning mode
❏ Attend live sessions; check in for Attendance; submit assignments on time; log into the
virtual learning platform such as Google Classroom
❏ During live sessions, be a silent observer and allow your child to engage independently
❏ Provide help when completing assignments and make notes on where you observe difficulty and share with the teacher
❏ Connect with ot
her Remote Learning families to develop/ maintain social relationships
