A Little more about Office Hours on Tuesdays /Thursdays


“Office Hours” fulfills 2 needs:

  1. Teachers’ need for interventions to support students (intensives)
  2. Students’ need to for drop-in support/get help

To meet both needs and minimize scheduling conflicts, the department chairs parsed the office hour blocks into an “intensives” session time and a “drop-in” session time.

Students, check your teachers' Canvas course for a sign up form to request an office hours appointment. If a teacher invites you to attend an intensives session, you are expected to attend, and attend fully.

Here are some how-to tips for using Zoom and Canvas:

Expectations for Students during Remote learning
 
It is important for students and families to understand that participation in our Remote Learning Program requires acceptance and adherence to school and district policies regarding acceptable use and conduct. The "digital spaces" teachers provide to you are, in effect, a school setting even while you are at home. Links to our relevant school and district policies are provided here. Also, all staff and students using 3rd party applications, such as Zoom and Canvas, must abide by their respective Terms of Service.
 
 
As a virtual learning student at ATC, rules and expectations regarding online etiquette have been designed to utilize the virtual platform in a responsible, safe, efficient, ethical, and legal manner. Please review ATC's Internet Use Agreement carefully for details regarding expectations. Important Zoom etiquette guidelines were also included in the student orientation package. Some important details to remember regarding participation in virtual classroom also include:
 
Cameras On/Off. Students are expected to turn their cameras on during the segments in which the teacher deems it necessary.
 
Profile name: Students must use their real names when entering Zoom meetings.
 
Profile pictures: Images must not include unacceptable content. Examples of unacceptable content may include, but are not limited to, sexual comments or images, racial slurs, gender-specific comments, or any other comments or images that could reasonably offend someone on the basis of race, age, sex, religious or political beliefs, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.
 
Environment: As much as possible, please support your student in dedicating a distraction free area of the home from which to participate in school activities. Headphones/earbuds are recommended to reduce distractions and background noise.
 
Each teacher may also have a specific set of expectations and procedures for students to follow during online virtual meetings.
 
The disciplinary consequences for inappropriate behavior will continue to follow a gradual process of intervention. The goal is to create the greatest opportunity for producing a positive change in the student’s behavior.
  • The first level of intervention will begin with the teacher conferencing directly with students. This will involve the student reflecting on their choices and developing a plan for moving forward.
  • The next level of intervention, if the issue persists, will involve the teacher contacting parents.
  • The next level of intervention, after communication with parents, will be for teachers to inform and request support from the Assistant Principal.
 
For students who appear to be demonstrating academic struggles teachers will continue to follow the SAT process for assisting students of concern.
 
Attendance
 
Teachers will record attendance in PowerSchool for each class meeting. If a student either arrives to the class meeting late, or leaves early, the teacher will record a "tardy" in PowerSchool. Parents should notify Vanessa Salazar, vanessa.salazar@atcschool.org, 505-473-4282 for all absence notifications, including those due to a technology issue. Vanessa will record, document, and inform classroom teachers accordingly.
 
Access to Devices and Internet
 
ATC has distributed chromebooks to students who need an internet-ready device for home use. A device replacement fee of $150 will be assessed to the student's fees and fines account for any device that is not returned. If you are having technical problems with any school devices issued to your student, please contact techsupport@atcschool.org for assistance.
 
ATC has purchased a stock of mobile hotspots to loan to students for internet access. We expect those to arrive by mid-September at the latest. If you have not already requested a hotspot, please email techsupport@atcschool.org. Also, both Comcast/Xfinity and Century Link have low-cost internet programs for families who qualify. Last, NMPED has set up a hotline for students and families for a range of support needs, including community resources for internet connectivity, meals, child care etc. at 1.833.551.0518. 
 
COVID Policies and Procedures
In limited instances, parents and students may need to come to campus during remote learning, please review our procedures and follow them whenever visiting ATC.

An Acknowledgement form will be mailed to each family, signatures from both parents and students will be needed. The tentative date for re-entry to the Hybrid model is October 15, This form will be your child's entry ticket to participating in hybrid model learning. The first period teacher will collect each form from students. If your child fails to return the form of the first day back to school, a phone call will be made and you will need to pick you your child.
