Academic Support

During CVCHS’ temporary closure, the CVCHS team would like to provide you and your students with some tools to help you during these uncertain times. You will be able to find information on how to structure your day, manage your time, and utilize study skills.
There is also information regarding the online learning platforms that CVCHS is using during this time, such as Schoology and PowerSchool.
Distance Learning Support
Starting a Daily Practice
Schoology is your new classroom. Login to Schoology every day and check out what your teachers have assigned for the day or week. Check the “updates” section of Schoology for a post from your teacher each day after 8:30 a.m. You can also see your assignments in the Schoology calendar.
Create a schedule for your day or week based on what has been assigned for you in Schoology. Students face the problem of not using the online platforms they know so well. Now more than ever it is critical to log onto those platforms - be sure to write down your username and passwords in one space. Remember to check the important folders.
Consider these systems in your new school for the next few weeks.
Structuring Your School Day
Structure is vital. Here are 3 important elements to remain structured:
    • Log into Schoology and your email each morning between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.
    • Chunk your day based on class or subject area.
    • Take breaks.
When Home-School Structure Falls Apart - Getting Back on Track
Students face the problem of getting out of their routine with schoolwork being assigned but without the daily structure of school and classes. When that happens, forgive yourself. Make a new commitment, and set smaller goals that are attainable and you can achieve each day.
Organization and Time Management
Setting time aside for work, creating a to-do list based on priority assignments.

How to Talk to Your Student about Coronavirus
How to Support Your Student in Online Learning
Parents face the problem of not knowing how to support their students during this time. Keep your own schedule regimented. Create a space for students to do schoolwork that is clean and quiet. Turn off electronics. Make regular meals for your child.
