Remote schooling handbook – Students and Families

The immediate focus is to ensure continuity of learning. There are a number of ways in which the College can make alternative arrangements to assist students with their learning and enable them to demonstrate unit outcomes and be engaged in assessment activities.

VCAA are taking a flexible and agile approach to meeting emerging issues and is relying on schools to be similarly flexible and agile in ensuring continuity of learning and delivery of assessment.

Remote learning means that each student can access their lesson materials remotely. This is facilitated online through their SIMON student portal and/or access to class resources made available through Google Classrooms, Education Perfect or other digital platforms typically accessed in your subject class. This will allow each student the ability to participate in their timetabled classes from home.

Remote learning means that each students lesson instructions, materials and reference to the textbooks will be made available online. The work set for each class will reflect the same amount of work that each student would receive if they were attending classes onsite.

Lesson outlines will be made available in SIMON, on the Class Notices page, by 9.00am each morning.

Additional resources to support student learning may be uploaded to the General documents section for downloading.

One class work task will be set to be uploaded each lesson for the duration of the school closure. This will allow teachers to monitor class work and attendance at the same time.

It is expected that staff will continually check their email across the course of the day and provide prompt feedback between the hours of 9:00am and 4.00pm.

In the event SIMON is not operating VCE students will receive a pack in the mail, this is only to be opened in the event that online work can’t be accesses.
