DJA Instructional Plan

DJA is closed to the public until further notice and all instruction will be done virtually. The front office will be accepting telephone calls (863-421-3267) on Monday through Friday from 9:00AM – 1:00PM.

Instructional Expectations: Each Teacher will contact their students via the student school email address unless pre-planned by the teacher. On Wednesday, April 1st, DJA will post, via social media, the teachers’ names and platform they will be using with students. Teachers will be taking attendance and will be posting grades from work completed. All grades will be earned from tangible work by students. Teachers will be communicating with students about learning standards and assignment information. If a teacher has not communicated with your student by  Monday, April 6th, please contact the school 863-421-3267 from 9:00AM-1:00PM.

Instructional Platforms: Our DJA teachers will be using virtual platforms to provide our students with instruction. We’ve included a help guide below to help your family quickly identify which platforms each teacher will be using.

Many teachers at our school have already been using these online platforms all year long and many students already have classes created in Google Classroom or accounts created for Math Nation, Khan Academy, Achieve 3000, and Seesaw.

Students will be expected to post assignments as directed by teachers on these given platforms. Due dates will be coordinated by teachers and teachers are available by email to assist with assignments and questions.

Students are asked to check their student emails daily to ensure they are not missing communication from their teachers. Each student has an email address which can be accessed from Classlink and in the Outlook Online icon. Students will use the same username and password as the would to log into a computer at school but the full email address will be their username@mypolkschools.net .

For students who need to add a class for Google Classroom if they log into Google Classroom from class link, they can click the “+ Join a Class” button and enter their class code. Teachers have added their class code into their first assignment in Student/Parent Portal and can be accessed by hovering over the assignment description OR they have sent an email to the student with their specific class code.

Any student who is not documented as active and engaged will be receiving a call from the teacher, subject-area leader, and/or administration. Students are asked to reach out to teachers for support with their learning.
