D128 Synchronous Classroom and Meeting Norms

Students are expected to fulfill D128 expectations for appropriate behavior while attending synchronous classroom sessions and meetings:

  • The Board of Education’s policies and student behavior standards will still apply when a student is receiving instruction by video or other remote means.
  • Students shall follow all disciplinary procedures as defined in the Student Handbook. Infractions can be referred to and will be addressed by LSTs in the same manner as if the conduct took place at school.
  • Students and parents/guardians are not permitted to download or make copies of recorded lessons.
  • During livestreamed classroom instruction, students and/or their families may not make audio or video recordings or take pictures of the screen.
  • Persons other than the student should not watch live streamed classes, unless a parent’s assistance during the lesson is essential due to a student’s special needs.
  • Students must completely log out of any live streamed lesson after the teacher has ended the class.
  • Students should have their cameras on at all times. Students are expected to be visible in video conferences unless students have approved requests for other arrangements.
  • Students should keep their microphones muted at all times unless they are called upon to speak. Students should use the hand raising and chat features to ask to speak. Communication chaos can quickly cause your session to not meet learning goals.
  • Students should consider the synchronous meeting a classroom and should choose location and seating arrangement to replicate that setting to the best of their ability.
  • Students are expected to present an appearance that does not disrupt the educational process or interfere with the maintenance of a positive teaching/learning climate.  
  • Students should use language thoughtfully.
