Tech Support: Accessing School Online

 

OUSD and Chabot want EVERY student to have their own device for Distance Learning. There are three different options for your family:

  • Purchase your own laptop or device
  • Borrow one from Chabot (or keep the one you borrowed last Spring)
  • If you have a demonstrable need for a permanent device/internet solution also complete the #OaklandUndivided survey (opens Monday, August 3) The #OaklandUndivided program seeks to bridge the digital divide. See the TECH DISTRIBUTION MEMO for details on the qualification process. As these devices will not be available until early September, you should still borrow one from Chabot until they arrive.

If you need a computer, please reach out to margaret.thorp@ousd.org and we will make arrangements.

Strong Start

 

WEEKS 1-4 – During these first weeks of school, teachers will only be with their classes for about 45 minutes/day. The main focus of this time is to establish the class community, learn expectations and protocols for interacting in the virtual world, and develop student’s socio-emotional skills.  These are the same priority and focus areas that our teachers always have during the start of school, and they are more important now than ever!  The rest of the day teachers will be meeting with families and students individually, attending Professional Development, planning, collaborating, and assessing students’ learning needs.

When your students are not with teachers, they will have the opportunity to access rigorous, standards based learning activities developed by OUSD education leaders.  These will be posted on the Chabot website by grade level.  Additionally, OUSD is hosting Family Orientation to Grade Level Strong Start Plans on Friday, August 7, 3pm via Zoom.  I encourage parents to attend this orientation if you are able.
