Remote Learning Changes
This is a message to families concerning some changes to our remote learner policies at Fort Scott High School. After guidance from the state about the sustainability of remote learning plans for schools and the requirements for required hours from the state, Fort Scott High School has made some changes to their remote policy. Beginning Monday, September 28th, all remote students will be required to attend their classes through live Zoom each hour. A student who fails to attend their live zoom will be counted unverified. If a student is unable to attend due to technical difficulties, that student should email their instructor immediately. Just like our attendance and tardy policy in the building, students who are more than 10 minutes late to a class will be considered absent. If your child is ill or unable to attend due to an appointment you must contact the Fort Scott High School office.
Because we know this was not the remote learning policy when you first chose remote, we feel families should be given the opportunity to come back to the building if they so choose. Therefore, through Tuesday, September 29th remote students will be allowed to change their mode of education. After Tuesday, if your child is still remote they will remain that way until the end of semester.
If your student has special circumstances that prevent them from meeting these requirements, please contact our school counselors to see if moving to our Odysseyware Virtual Program is right for you. This program will still require 30 hours of work per week by your student. Josh Messer is the counselor for Juniors and Seniors. Doug Altic is the counselor for Freshman and Sophomores.
