Full Remote (100%) Learning Overview

  • For students in grades K-5, our remote learning program will be taught and facilitated by certified teachers from the Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES and their Instructional Technology Division. This will be a full day program and will be comprised of a combination of live instruction (synchronous), prerecorded lessons, and work provided via an online learning platform (asynchronous). All students will have frequent, substantive interactions with their NYS certified teacher.

    For students in grades 6-12, our remote program will be taught and facilitated by certified staff members from the Whitesboro Central School District. This will be a full day program and will be comprised of a combination of live instruction (synchronous), prerecorded lessons, and work provided via an online learning platform (asynchronous). All students will have frequent, substantive interactions with their NYS certified teacher.

    The Whitesboro Central School District will implement a 1:1 device program for K-12 students for the 2020-2021 school year. This ensures not only that those students in need of a device are provided with one, but also ensures that all students have the ability to use the same assigned device both in and out of school. Student high-speed internet access at their place(s) of residence will continue to be addressed through the use of District-assigned 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots. These devices are configured to route all traffic through Whitesboro Central School District’s established internet filtering infrastructure, as well as to limit connections to only those devices provided by the District; connection of personally owned devices is disabled.  If unique cases are to arise in which students are not able to be provided District-assigned devices and/or 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots due to parent/guardian refusal of devices and/or other circumstances beyond the District’s control, participation in learning and demonstration of mastery of Learning Standards will be facilitated through paper learning materials and/or assessments.
