Remote Learning at FRCS

Foxborough Regional Charter School has implemented an online learning plan.

 

The plan was developed not only in response to our extended school closure in March of 2020 but as a great tool to enrich the teaching and learning environment in our already strong educational program. 

 

The first day of school for Foxborough Regional Charter School students for the 2020-2021 school year is Monday, September 14, 2020. Students will start remotely. On Monday, October 19, 2020 we will begin our Hybrid Phase-In Plan. 

 

The platform we use is Google Classroom. It’s a digital link to learning! Teachers can use Google Classroom to share assignments, homework, and much more with students and parents.

Foxborough Regional Charter School Remote Learning Acknowledgement

 

The Foxborough Regional Charter School District is dedicated to providing engaging and effective remote learning opportunities for our students.  As part of our remote learning opportunities, the district is offering these opportunities via a virtual platform. Prior to engaging in these virtual opportunities, the district seeks to clarify expectations around appropriate use of virtual technologies for educational opportunities.

 

  • The District strictly prohibits screenshots, pictures, audio/video recording and distribution of any virtual educational experience in order to protect student privacy, proactively prevent potential cyberbullying, prevent the distribution of copyrighted materials and comply with Massachusetts law. Please note that in Massachusetts, it is a crime to record another person through any medium without his or her knowledge.
  • Students, and where appropriate parents/guardians, agree to engage in virtual educational experiences in a quiet, private area to the extent practicable given the circumstances, in order to minimize background noise and distractions and to protect the integrity of student engagement as well as student confidentiality.
  • Parents/guardians and other household members who normally are not privy to day-to-day classroom and group service discussions agree to respect and keep confidential any personal or private information (e.g. disability status) inadvertently discovered about other students due to proximity of virtual education.
 

As a reminder, the district’s Acceptable Use Policy applies to virtual learning, including school-issued devices and networks. 

Information for Special Education Families

 

During the phased in approach to reopening school,  special education students will continue to receive the services documented in their IEPs through, remote instruction, in-person instruction or a combination of both, while abiding by the current necessary health and safety requirements.  Most students who are considered high needs according to the level of need page in their IEP, will return to in-person instruction first using a phased in approach.   Most special education students who are considered low to moderate needs according to the IEP level of needs page will begin school remotely and phase into in-person instruction based on their grade level.  All families of special education students  will receive a learning plan prior to the start of school  (Sept 14, 2020) which will outline how services will be delivered to their child.   
 
Please contact FRCS Student Services Director Lori Obenchain with additional questions.
