Sharing Our Methods

As schools across the land close their physical campuses due for social distancing reasons, we will share as much information we can regarding our tools, plans, or methods we have implemented as part of our asynchronous Online Learning Days (OLDs) and our synchronous Block Online Learning Days (BOLDs) It is important for students to have a sense of normalcy during this tumultuous time in their lives, we hope to provide them some comfort in continuing lessons in an online format. We have made information about our resources and processes available in an open-source format for easy accesibility and distribution to be modified or used as you'd like in your school community. 

Online Learning at Providence

At Providence High School, we have regularly hosted OLDs (Online Learning Days) over the past two years. In our OLDs, students stay home and work on assignments asynchronously on their own time.

In recent days with the developments and spread of COVID-19, it has become clear that the most relevant advice when it comes to deciding when to cease normal operations and move learning online is not clinical, but rather epidemiological. We know the most effective way to slow the spread of the virus is social distancing and that knowledge comes with moral responsibility. Therefore, with the support and consultation of our Board of Regents, we are introducing Block Online Learning Days. The main difference between our previous OLDs and BOLDs:

  • OLD required you to login to Schoology and complete assignments on your own time and at your own pace.
  • BOLD means you are expected to be “in class” online and doing coursework during designated times. Schoology, Office365 and live class meetings will allow you, your classmates, and your teacher to still have important instructional time together.
