HYDE’S 2020 VIRTUAL LEARNING PLAN
————————————————–—————
What follows are Hyde's complete plans for virtual learning during the spring of 2020.
Needless to say, we are continuously developing our programs and the supporting
technology as we learn from our experience.

During this time of “social distancing,” Hyde continues to stay in touch with students
and families every day. We keep daily attendance and maintain daily contact with
students and families. We are proud of the fact that our virtual learning attendance is as
strong as our “regular” school attendance. We see this level of student engagement as
an endorsement of our teachers' virtual programs as well as a reminder of how
important the school is as a stabilizing force in the social and emotional lives of our
students, especially during a time of trial and uncertainty.

As a K-12 college preparatory school, Hyde serves a wide spectrum of developmental
stages- from four-years-olds to eighteen-years-olds, to college students and beyond.
We have compiled separate plans for each division: K-3, our elementary school; 4-8,
our middle school; and 9-12, our high school and post-secondary success program.
Several themes unify all three virtual learning plans: character development signature
programs, individualized support for students with special needs, and a blending of
asynchronous and synchronous instruction. All three divisions have online tools, with
grades 2nd-12th utilizing Chromebooks and Google Classroom as the main tool/
platform (many others mentioned in the documents). We continue to troubleshoot the
needs of students and staff and are pleased with the degree of engagement our
students are experiencing.

The new formats and modes of learning available through our virtual learning programs
have unleashed opportunities for students to discover their talents and interests and
provide innovative ways for individualized instruction and personalized learning. While
we badly miss being in the school buildings with everyone else, we are learning so
much as we make adjustments, rise to new challenges, and get more and more out of
our technology tools to share, to grow, and to learn.

Sincerely,

Thomas Sturtevant, Executive Director

VIRTUAL LEARNING PLAN
————————————————
Hyde’s elementary school is a place of joy
and an excitement for learning. Our
transition to a virtual learning program
continues this focus as we offer students
our inclusive program where all learners
feel safe, nurtured, and challenged. Our
staff will continue to embrace the
uniqueness of each child as they develop
their character, grow academically, and
tend to their social-emotional well-being. We view the shift to virtual learning as an
opportunity to engage with students in new and innovative ways.

The elementary school virtual learning plan follows an asynchronous learning model.
We feel strongly that this student-centered approach to learning offers our students
and families the flexibility they need during our time online. Teachers post lessons in a
variety of subjects to the online classrooms and students complete those lessons at
their own pace throughout the day. Teachers also schedule virtual face-to-face
check-ins with students each week.

PLATFORMS FOR DAILY USE
Hyde’s elementary school uses the following technology and communication systems

VIRTUAL LEARNING PLAN
————————————————
Hyde’s middle school virtual learning
program continues to inspire children
toward academic achievement and
excellent character. Our move to a virtual
model continues to promote student-
centered learning, rigorous instruction, and
the cultivation of strong trusting
relationships with all members of our
learning community. We are committed to engaging students in critical thought and
dialogue. We view the shift to remote learning as an opportunity to engage with
students in new and innovative ways. Online assignments ensures students meet
standards and objectives outlined in curriculum maps in order to maintain course
pacing.

The middle school program follows a synchronous learning model. Teachers and
students will engage daily through live instruction and weekly through student
conferencing. All live lessons are recorded and can be accessed by students at
anytime. We believe this model provides middle school students with a structured
approach during this transition.

PLATFORMS FOR DAILY USE

SUPPORT FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS
   Students with Disabilities: Lessons and classwork are adapted for students
    based on their individual needs. Students with disabilities receive additional 1:1
    conferencing throughout our virtual learning program. All middle school students
    also have access to Read&Write, a Google-based extension that improves
    accessibility, including the read aloud, speech-to-text, dictionary, etc. features.

   Related Services: Speech therapists, counselors, occupational therapists and
    physical therapists currently assigned by the NYCDOE to serve charter school
    students provide tele-therapy, where appropriate and feasible. We are in
    communication and working with our service providers to get them connected to all
    of our students in Google Classroom.

   English Language Learners: Our ENL teachers provide additional support to
    our ELLs by supporting students with classwork through providing adaptations and
    monitoring and responding to student work. ENL teachers also conference with
    students 1:1 and provide additional lessons and activities targeting reading, writing,
    listening and speaking skills. We’ve also paired our “Entering” and “Emerging”
    students for additional support once a week with an ENL teacher in which they will
    receive direct instruction for an ENL teacher, where one week they target speaking
    and listening, and the next week reading and writing.
          In 4th grade, there is an ENL teacher in all periods of English Language
            Arts, in addition to Reading Intervention periods.
          In 5th grade, there is an ENL teacher in all ELA Intervention periods.
          In 6th-8th grade, students receive ENL support through their math periods.

   Reading and Math Intervention: Our intervention teachers provide additional
    lessons and activities that are targeted to students receiving intervention. They
    also meet virtually with students via video or phone to conference with students on
    targeted skills. 4th grade students will receive 60 minutes each of ELA and math.

MIDDLE SCHOOL (4-8)
VIRTUAL LEARNING PLAN
————————————————————————————————

In ELA Intervention, students receive the tiered level of intervention needed based on
their reading level. For students that require tier 3 intervention, they will work on
System 44 through the instructional software. Those that require tier 2 will work on
Read 180’s instructional software (at a scaffolded level) and those that are Tier 1 will
be challenged by being placed in Level 5 of the instructional software, helping them
expand their literacy skills. Both softwares (Read 180 and System 44) include a variety
of zones for kids to explore in which they learn, practice and ultimately assess different
areas of literacy (Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening). In addition, teachers conduct
reading conferences with students, as students are expected to read independently for
20 minutes a day. They will complete interactive reading logs, via Google Classroom,
and have a wide selection of books to read from (digitally) via Read 180.

   Counseling Services: Students receive their mandated and/or at-risk
    counseling through online platforms. Both the 4-6th grade counselor and 7-8th
    grade counselor will implement character education and social emotional learning
    activities on a weekly basis. All mandated and at risk counseling sessions are held
    via Google Video Hangouts. Counselors also have office hours for students to
    “drop in”. Session notes for mandated students are recorded in SESIS and At Risk
    notes will be recorded via the standard google form. Counselors will continue
    ongoing communication with administrative and teaching staff members.
    Counselors attend grade level meetings in order to stay connected to the teaching
    teams and to ascertain information regarding concerns relative to student
    behaviors, attendance, socio-emotional or academic struggles. Counselors then
    follow up with students and/or families as necessary. Both counselors will continue
    attending IEP meetings via teleconference.

   Counseling Curricular Programs: Hyde has partnered with non-profit, Kid Grit,
    to provide our middle school students with a holistic approach combining
    mindfulness, social emotional learning, youth development and character building.
    Kid Grit works with students to build the necessary life skills in areas such as stress
    and anxiety management, self-control, increased productivity, and improved
    attention span in academic classes, sports and the arts. Additionally, we have a
    partnership with a national non-profit organization, Ruling Our Experiences (ROX)
    which has helped boost the confidence of our middle school girls by providing them
    with the tools and resources to tackle challenges head on. Each year, 48 girls
    between the 6th and 7th grade are provided the opportunity to be part of the ROX
    Program. All 48 girls will continue to receive their ROX Lessons and receive
    ongoing support from their counselor through virtual meetings.

   High School Articulation: During remote learning we continue to provide
    support to our 8th grade students and families as they complete the high school
    articulation process. The 8th grade counselor is tracking all high school applications
    and communicates with all 8th grade families via phone regarding their progress,
    decisions, etc.

SPRING BREAK
From April 9th to 17th, middle school students will engage in the following
opportunities:

        Independent project-based activities for students to take on as an extension
         of class work.
        Scheduled time to connect “live” with faculty.
        Virtual games & puzzles.
        Resources and best practices to explore how to stay physically and
         emotionally heathy.

————————————————
Hyde’s high school virtual learning program
continues our rigorous college-preparatory
model committed to developing the deeper
character and unique potential of our
students. Our move to a virtual model
promotes student-centered learning,
rigorous instruction, and the cultivation of
strong trusting relationships with all
members of our learning community. We are committed to engaging students in critical
thought and dialogue. We view the shift to remote learning as an opportunity to engage
with students in new and innovative ways. Online assignments and assessments
ensure students meet standards and objectives outlined in curriculum maps in order to
maintain course pacing and steady academic progress towards high school
graduation.

Our high school virtual program follows an asynchronous learning model. This student-
centered approach to learning offers our students the flexibility they need during our
time online. Teachers will post lessons in a variety of subjects to the virtual classrooms
and students will complete those lessons at their own pace throughout the day.
Teachers are available daily for support and offer weekly office hours for needed
support.

SUPPORT FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS

       Students with Disabilities: The high school team is committed to ensuring
        access for students with disabilities by scaffolding and differentiating instruction and
        materials. Special education teachers also schedule virtual 1:1 sessions as needed
        to ensure students are getting the supports they need. All high school students also
        have access to Read&Write, a Google-based extension that improves accessibility,
        including the read aloud, speech-to-text, dictionary, etc. features.

       Related Services: Speech therapists, counselors, occupational therapists and
        physical therapists currently assigned by the NYCDOE to serve charter school
        students provide tele-therapy, where appropriate and feasible. We are in
        communication and working with our service providers to get them connected to all
        of our students in Google Classroom.

   English Language Learners: Our mission, alongside State guidelines around
    English Language Learners, is to continue providing services considering their
    language proficiency and entitled minutes of service. We aim to support as well as
    challenge their growth as learners of the English Language. It is, therefore,
    imperative that we collaboratively find the best way possible in which we can
    continue to provide services. To that end, below find the guidelines and directives
    we are providing to ensure that continuity of services remains.
        Engage in weekly collaboration/planning meetings with GenEd teachers to
           ensure lessons/activities/assessments are accessible, yet challenging for all
           ELLs within the class.
        In these meetings, timelines for submission of assignments that may present
           processing challenges should be considered. It is also important to note the
           method of submission considering a Universal Design for Learning.
        Differentiate/modify material considering the student’s language proficiency,
           abilities and challenges in the target language. Make these materials
           available to the individual student (or small group of students) via Google
           Classroom.
        Teacher modeling and exemplars uploaded on Google Classroom as
           supplemental materials that can be send to/shared with an individual student
           or small group of students on Google Classroom.
        Ongoing communication, individualized instruction and follow-up with our
           ELLs via Google Chat, email, or phone from our team is vital for their
           success.

COLLEGE AND POST-SECONDARY SUCCESS PROGRAM
We continue to offer a wide menu of post-secondary virtual supports while we are
working remotely including, support with financial aid, transferring, and counseling.
