Tier Five: Online High School Instruction Overview

Online high school instruction will begin on Monday, March 30, 2020 and will continue throughout the period of school closure.

The BASD high schools’ online instruction will be asynchronous —meaning that the teacher and student interaction is not dependent on traditionally-scheduled time. Teachers will provide weekly assignments that will drive the instruction for the week. Teachers will conduct online instruction in support of the weekly assignments (in Schoology) and communicate (using established communication tools) directly with students and parents each week. During online instruction, the window of time for completing online assignments will be one week, starting on Monday at 9:00 AM and continuing through the following Monday at 12:00 Noon when assignments are due. The Bethlehem Area School District will continue to provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) consistent with the need to protect the health and safety of students with disabilities and those individuals providing education, specially designed instruction, and related services.
