CCAA News...

All freshmen will be selecting their CCAA pathway beginning the week of February 1st. The link to select is in the Freshman Seminar Google Classroom.  All 9th graders recently experience a Career Expo to help them in this selection and their area of interest.  Please talk to your learners about their Expo experience and help them decide which of our three pathways they are interested in selecting:  Biotechnology, Environmental Engineering, and Cyber Security & Network Defense.

Resources to support remote learning

How can STEM HS support all learners and increase engagement?  What systems are in place to support STEM learning goals?

As part of your system to support Mastery, a specially designed schedule was created to allow for additional individualized or small groups sessions with the learning coaches.  For your reference I have outlined the resources available to help all learners reach Mastery.  Please take advantage of these sessions and ensure that your child is attending IMPACT.  IMPACT is a mandatory part of our STEM program.

Your learner can attend:

  • Daily Google Meets where clarifying questions can be addressed by staff and collaboration can occur with peers.

  • Daily office hours, Monday-Thursday from 2:00-2:30 where learners can get one on one support to the learning standards.

  • IMPACT sessions twice per month for small group and one on one support

  • Asynchronous Friday for individual and differentiated instruction.

  • After Hours Tutoring is available until 7 pm Monday-Thursday and from 10-2 on Saturdays.  The number to call is 330-761-7943,or you can join with a Google Meet Link located on akronschools.com

  • Email your learning coaches for support as needed

How can I get support for stress and anxiety in this remote learning model?​

  • After Hours Counseling is available from 4-7 pm Monday-Thursday and from 10-2 pm on Saturdays.  The number to call is 330-761-7943, or you can join with a Google Meet Link located on akronschools.com.

  • Daily, Coach Grandison is accessible via email to set up appointments to talk or connect to community resources for support.  His email address is mrg47219@apslearns.org

My learner failed a class marking period 1, how can my learner get back on track to earn credit at the end of the first semester?

  • Credit at the semester is calculated by three parts:  marking period 1 grade, marking period 2 grade, and the semester exam.

  • If your learner failed a course for marking period 1, they will need to pass marking period 2 and the semester exam at a mastery level.

  • Attend all IMPACT sessions, reach out during office hours for support, engage in all Google Classroom lessons, and check HAC weekly for missing assignments.

  • Communicate with learning coaches and schedule a conference on November 12th if your learner is falling behind.

STEM Celebrations!

Despite the challenges of remote learning, STEM Learners and Learning Coaches continue to innovate and impress! Check out some of their accomplishments thus far!
