Knox County Schools Covid-19 Update #5 Issued April 27th
An important reminder to students and parents. Your child’s grades were made available for your viewing on the Family Portal. Wednesday, April 29th was the deadline for submitting your option for grades for the year. The steps for completing this phase are located on the schools web-site. If students have not submitted their options by Wednesday, we will have to default to their current grade average as their final grade.
If you and your child’s choice is to improve their current score in any subject, they must log in and indicate Option B. This will give them until May 21st to improve their score. Parents, please have this discussion with your kids before the deadline. If you need any assistance, please email me and I will get you the support you need.
Knox County teachers have worked with content supervisors and specialists to prepare resources to help your family continue to learn at home during the COVID-19 school closure. As you explore the resources, keep in mind that all of the work is optional and you should use it in the way that makes the most sense for your current family situation. No student’s grade will be impacted positively or negatively.
Within “Student Resources,” materials are available for math, social studies, ELA, and science. There is a packet resource for each grade level, and grades K-8 have a YouTube video featuring a Knox County teacher of that grade and subject to accompany the resource. The videos are also running on Comcast Channel 10 and PBS.
Additionally, there are “Student Supports” materials for students who might need specialized instruction. We have also included information to help parents or caregivers with some strategies for supporting the varied needs of the learners in their care.
Limited quantities of printed packets are available for families without internet access at the KCS meal distribution sites.
