NEW EXPECTATION FOR VIRTUAL STUDENTS TO ENGAGE

As we begin the new semester next week, we will be changing the expectation that all students must have their computer camera turned on for all classes.  Many other high schools in eastern CT have had this expectation all year, and it has not been a hardship for their students, so we will follow suit.  The reason why we are making this shift is to increase student engagement in their classes, help teachers better teach and assess their students, and promote more class community on a daily basis.  When students sit behind a blank screen, the teacher doesn't know how engaged the students are, and it makes it difficult to help them.  We feel this small, but significant, change will help our students be more successful.  Thank you for supporting this expectation with your children.
