Orangewood Remote Learning
Even though our physical classrooms may be temporarily closed, student learning continues remotely. Dealing with a global pandemic has made for interesting times at Orangewood Christian School, however, we remain steadfast in faith knowing that God continues to guide us through these unprecedented events. Through His provision we are open and learning!
The Orangewood community has come together with its signature OCS Connects approach to address these new challenges – rising to the occasion, finding new strength as a team and bringing each other along with courage, integrity and compassion. Want to see how Rams pull together when the going gets tough? Follow along in our journey #OCSConnects – this is our legacy, this is who we are, this is who we will continue to be, no matter the challenge.
- Instruction will follow an "asynchronous" model, where teachers post lessons and course materials in advance for students to work independently, yet still aligned with the school calendar.
- An asynchronous model allows for adaptation and customization for faculty to meet the needs of students.
- Asynchronous learning allows for more schedule flexibility for our students, which benefits all members of our community. It also limits excessive screen time and promotes balance during a time when many of our students will likely be on screens more than usual.
Schedule and Attendance:
- Teachers' schedules will follow usual school hours.
- While daily attendance will not be taken in its traditional form, it will be monitored by teachers based on work accomplished and submitted daily.
