CATS Online General Information

Instructional Expectations

  • CATS Online Instructional Expectation

    • CATS Online students will follow the same bell schedule as on campus students. CATS Online students will adhere to same amount of time in class as on campus students and receive the same instruction as on campus students just in a virtual setting.

    • Attendance will be taken by the teacher at the beginning of each class period. For example, first period begins at 8:35am and attendance will be taken at that time.

    • Online classes will be the same duration as on campus classes with active teaching and learning through the entire period. It is the expectation that students remain in the virtual class setting for the entire class. Leaving the virtual class will result in being marked absent for the duration of the class.

    • Students will have time for lunch at the same time their teacher has time for lunch. The duration of lunch times will match the same time frames as lunch on campus. The teacher will be responsible for taking attendance again upon return from lunch time in the virtual setting.

    • The same rules and procedures that are evident in the classroom on campus will also be evident in the online classroom. Students are expected to abide by all rules and procedures.

    • If an online student needs to step away from the computer for a restroom break they must ask the teacher for permission and notify the teacher they are stepping away.

    • Cameras and/or video must be on for the entire class period as verification the online student is still present in the class.

    • Please dress appropriately for online learning.

    • Online students should create a work space free from excessive noise or distractions that will interfere with learning.

    • We are working to provide copies of all textbooks (online and printed materials) to virtual students.

    • It is required that each online student provide their own webcam. Teachers must be able to see students in their class to mark them present. The school will provide a Chromebook and Hotspot if needed
