  • Updated Welcome Back Panthers!!!

    Dear Panthers and Parents,

    As we get ready to welcome our Panthers back, please take a look at our schedule for online learning and these details below.  We are all here to support one another as we adjust to this next phase of online learning.   While we ended last year virtually, all attempting to adjust to this type of learning quickly, those experiences and your feedback have helped shape a significantly different plan moving forward.  This fall, while we still remain virtual, we will provide rigorous coursework with accountability and support for our students that we know our South community expects.

    Canvas

    • All of your classes will be accessible when you log into Canvas.
    • These classes are the classes reflected in your Skyward schedule.
    • Canvas classes will be accessible Monday, 8/10/20, at midnight.

    Microsoft Teams

    • A module for how to use Microsoft Teams, Canvas tutorials, and Google Drive is located in each of your teacher’s Canvas course.
    • Log in to Microsoft Teams using your username with .edu at the end instead of .net (ie. jboyle@mccsc.edu instead of jboyle@mccsc.net).

    SRT/SEL/Counseling

    • SRT - Wednesday, August 12th - Please join your SRT via Microsoft Teams for a short welcome at 8am on Wednesday, 8/12/20.
    • Log in to Canvas, find your SRT course, and click on the Microsoft Teams link provided.
    • Social Emotional Learning will continue in this environment. Specific SEL lessons will take place in SRT on Friday afternoons. 
    • Counselors are available to assist at any time. Please feel free to reach out via Canvas, email or phone.

    Schedule

    • Students will follow the schedule of live/recorded/classwork times given. The intent of the schedule, along with providing flexibility and live instruction, is to give every period a set time during the day to allow for planning of additional, potential live meetings.  Students can work on recorded instruction and assignments flexibly, but need to be prepared for live meetings for the course. 
    • Recorded Instruction – Recorded instruction will cover new content and students will have the flexibility to access these at any time. These lessons will all be accessible in your Canvas courses.
    • Live Instruction - During live periods, students will engage with their teachers and build upon content from recorded instruction. Teachers will provide Microsoft Teams links in Canvas for these live periods.

    Live Instructional Support/Virtual Panther Plus

    • Live Instructional Support/Virtual Panther Plus will allow students to meet with their teachers via Microsoft Teams for real time support in all of their classes.
    • We recognize that real time, individual engagement is critical during online learning, so this time can be both teacher and student driven.
    • Students will have the flexibility to meet with multiple teachers for support during these times if they choose.

    Online Learning Expectations

    • Check Canvas for your daily schedule and assignments.
    • Be on time for live online meetings in Microsoft Teams and use your username with .edu to log in.
    • Be physically and mentally present for all live meetings.
    • Use appropriate etiquette for live meetings (i.e. active listening, taking advantage of opportunities to engage by asking questions, appropriate dress, etc.)
    • Utilize live instructional support periods/Virtual Panther Plus to ensure students are current, active and engaged in learning and coursework.

    Attendance

    • Attendance will be taken daily based upon academic engagement in the course.
    • For extended absences, please communicate with your counselor and teacher.
    • If you need to report an excused absence, please continue to follow standard attendance reporting procedures by calling our attendance line (812) 330-7714 extension 51013.

     

    We’re all navigating together and remain committed to collectively doing the best we can under these conditions. While this is new for everyone, we will progress together and implement what we believe to be a good plan.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can assist.

  • 2020-21 Student Schedules

    Schedules for 2020-21 are available to view in Skyward.  This schedule is reflective of the course requests you made.  We are not able to make adjustments based on periods, trimesters, lunches or other preferences as we work to ensure proper class enrollment.  

    Please do check to make sure there are no errors within your schedule (signed up for the wrong level of a course, missing a part of a class, etc).  Adjustments will be made for completed summer school courses and the need to retake courses. Schedules may change prior to school starting due to balancing and some staffing changes. Our priority is to ensure that students are enrolled in the correct classes and remain on track for timely graduation.
