Remote Learning Defined

  • Remote Learning is taught either Synchronous or Asynchronous.  Below are the difference between both. The J-Learning at Home remote program option will include both Synchronous or Asynchronous.

    Synchronous Asynchronous

    instruction is two-way, real-time, virtual instruction between the teachers and students when students are not on campus.

    Instruction is provided through a computer or other electronic device or over the phone.

    A required amount of instructional time is scheduled each day, and funding is generated when attendance is recorded daily at a locally selected snapshot time.

    instruction does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time. Instruction includes pre-recorded videos and pre-assigned work

    Instruction that does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time

    In this method, students learn from instruction that is not necessarily being delivered in person or in real time

    This type of instruction may include various forms of digital and online learning, such as prerecorded video lessons or game-based learning tasks that students complete on their own, and pre-assigned work and formative assessments made available to students on paper

    If Remote Learning is selected as the instructional choice, parents must commit to the following J-Learning Guidelines:

    • Ensure your student is in attendance daily to meet the 90% attendance requirement and understand that daily monitoring of attendance, engagement, and effort will occur. 
    • Understand that If your child fails to meet expectations for J-Learning at Home, a school/parent/student meeting will be required and the student will have an attendance plan put in place. If the concern continues, the campus administrator will follow the attendance protocols according to district policy. 
    • Understand that our child is still held accountable to the student code of conduct for Judson ISD.
    • Understand that your child may only participate in afterschool UIL activities if they have met attendance requirements for the day. If your child was not engaged on the day of the event, participation will be denied.
    • Academic integrity is important for all students. Ensure student’s assignments/assessments are taken independently. Understand that you may be asked to “proctor” assessments by verifying that your child is not accessing textbooks, notes, or other students for some assessments during the nine weeks.
