CTLS has improved how Cobb students learn and how teachers teach. Learning resources are available for students both at school and at home, and a recent study by Brown University concluded that “...CTLS likely played a role in Cobb’s impressive academic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
One area in which CTLS helps you and your student is to allow learning to continue, even at home.
During the 2023-2024 school year, so that teachers can participate in professional learning, students will learn at home through CTLS on:
- August 21, 2023
- October 16, 2023
- March 4, 2024
Each of these dates had already been scheduled as early release days.
On these three days, you can expect for:
- Students to work independently at home
- Teachers will have reviewed expectations with students the day before.
- Teachers will not host live, face-to-face instruction on these days. Instead, they will provide “asynchronous” instruction that may include a pre-recorded video, independent learning activity, or review lesson.
- Students will work from home on teacher-created assignments, which will be communicated and available within CTLS.
Your student will also be given a 30-minute assignment for each class based on their specific learning targets.
This assignment may include the following:
- Optional pre-recorded video (6–10 minutes in length)
- Shared article
- Summary questions
Teachers will be available for questions and feedback each day, and lessons and assignments can be completed anytime during the school day.
