Goals and Guidelines for Virtual Learning Days 

United South Central Schools

What is Virtual Learning? Virtual Learning involves online lessons that students complete when away from the physical school building.  By using one-to-one Chromebooks/Chrome touch, USC recognizes that a robust education can continue even when students and teachers are not in the same location.  Along with emphasizing the value of learning, the virtual Learning plan encourages character growth in the areas of self-sufficiency, adaptability, and perseverance.  

What are the Goals of USC’s Virtual Learning Initiative?  

  1. To minimize the disruption to academic progress caused by emergency school closures by making these out-of-school days as educationally productive and engaging as possible.
  2. To allow USC’s PK-12 students the opportunity to practice the kind of online learning that is increasingly part of both college study and workplace training.  
  3. To maximize use of USC’s one-to-one technology.

What does Virtual Learning look like at USC?  

How Will Families Be Notified That Virtual Learning Is Expected?  If regular school is cancelled, families, teachers, and students will receive an announcement about Virtual Learning expectations through the school messaging system.  Also, a notice will be placed on the USC website, on the school’s official Facebook site, and, if possible, the implementation of a Virtual Learning Day will be broadcast in conjunction with the school closing announcements on radio and television.

What Will Teachers Provide on Virtual Learning Days?

How can Parents Help Support Student Success with Virtual Learning?


1. Treat all devices with considerable care. Please make sure no water bottles are in the backpack with the device.

2. The "Responsible Use" policy  for technology use is still in effect.  Any inappropriate use of a school-issued device will have consequences, including but not limited to, the unavailability of certain apps or alternative assignments.  We ask that parents support our distance learning efforts by monitoring their students' use of technology.

3. If student interaction online is inappropriate (i.e., harassment of other students, Googling inappropriate websites, using vulgarity or inappropriate language/images), a Principal or Dean of Students will contact parents.  If teachers become aware of inappropriate use, they will contact their Principal or the Dean of Students.
