Principal's Message

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I hope you and your family are doing well. At East Valley Central we are still working toward providing a better school experience for your child. We understand that this is a challenging time and we have developed additional layers of structure related to schedules and grading which was developed through reviewing OSPI's recommendations for public schools.
 
We have developed a schedule to avoid students having multiple learning opportunities at the same time. On each day of the week, a specific content area will have priority from 9:00-2:30 so that staff can reach out and check in with students, provide instruction digitally, answer questions and/or provide social/school community connections. Your student will not be meeting with our staff during that entire time, but a time(s) will be provided within that window. Before 9:00 and after 2:30 is a designated window which is open for all staff members to conduct office hours, non-required enrichments or extra-curricular activities. Your child’s teachers will be communicating directly with you regarding these additional opportunities.  The daily schedule by content area is attached.  Please note: your student will have assignments which may be completed outside the designated day and please encourage your child to check Google classroom consistently. 
 
We have received additional guidance in the area of grading from the state. Please understand that this may change and please be patient with us because further state recommendations are coming out weekly. Moving forward for the second semester (S2), all students will receive either a pass (P) or no credit (NC) grade at the end of the term. This also includes classes that are provided for only quarter 4 (T4 - Writing/Health/MOS/Electives). Passing grades will be assigned to students who are participating in learning. To monitor student progress, we will be utilizing Skyward and entering grades starting next week. Please keep in mind that even though a student has a letter grade in Skyward (A, B, C, D, or F), these grades will not be posted at the end of S2 or T4, but will instead reflect a P or NC. The exception to this are high school credit classes being provided at EVC. These classes will follow the high school grading process. 
 
We have made these adjustments based on the state recommendations.  We’ve also taken into consideration what families across East Valley are facing in supporting the education of their children. I, myself, have three elementary age students in the district and understand what it is like to support education from home. We can do this together and I look forward to the day when all students and staff can return to the building.
 
Thank you!

Estimado padre o Guardianes,

Espero que usted y su familia estén bien. En East Valley Central todavía estamos trabajando para proporcionar una mejor experiencia escolar para su hijo. Entendemos que este es un momento desafiante y hemos desarrollado capas adicionales de estructura relacionadas con los horarios y la calificación que se desarrolló a través de la revisión de las recomendaciones de OSPI para las escuelas públicas.
 
Hemos desarrollado un horario para evitar que los estudiantes tengan múltiples oportunidades de aprendizaje al mismo tiempo. Cada día de la semana, un área de contenido específica tendrá prioridad de 9: 00-2: 30 para que el personal pueda comunicarse y consultar con los estudiantes, proporcionar instrucción digital, responder preguntas y / o proporcionar conexiones sociales / comunidad escolar. Su estudiante no se reunirá con nuestro personal durante todo ese tiempo, pero se proporcionará un horario dentro de esa ventana. Antes de las 9:00 y después de las 2:30 hay una ventana designada que está abierta para que todos los miembros del personal realicen horas de oficina, enriquecimientos no requeridos o actividades extracurriculares. Los maestros de su hijo se comunicarán directamente con usted con respecto a estas oportunidades adicionales. Se adjunta la programación diaria por área de contenido. Tenga en cuenta: su estudiante tendrá tareas que pueden completarse fuera del día designado y aliente a su hijo a revisar el aula de Google de manera consistente.
 
Hemos recibido orientación adicional en el área de calificación del estado. Por favor, comprenda que esto puede cambiar y sea paciente con nosotros, ya que semanalmente se publican más recomendaciones estatales. Avanzando para el segundo semestre (S2), todos los estudiantes recibirán una calificación de pase (P) o sin crédito (NC) al final del período. Esto también incluye clases que se proporcionan solo para el cuarto trimestre (T4 - Escritura / Salud / MOS / Electivas). Las calificaciones aprobatorias se asignarán a los estudiantes que participan en el aprendizaje. Para monitorear el progreso de los estudiantes, utilizaremos Skyward e ingresaremos las calificaciones a partir de la próxima semana. Tenga en cuenta que aunque un estudiante tenga una calificación de letras en Skyward (A, B, C, D o F), estas calificaciones no se publicarán al final de S2 o T4, sino que reflejarán una P o NC.  La excepción a esto son las clases de crédito de secundaria que se proporcionan en EVC. Estas clases seguirán el proceso de calificación de la escuela secundaria.
 
Hemos realizado estos ajustes basados ​​en las recomendaciones estatales. También hemos tenido en cuenta lo que las familias de East Valley enfrentan para apoyar la educación de sus hijos. Yo mismo tengo tres estudiantes de primaria en el distrito y entiendo lo que es apoyar la educación desde casa. Podemos hacer esto juntos y espero con ansias el día en que todos los estudiantes y el personal puedan regresar al edificio.
 
¡Gracias!
