Parent Guide To Distant Learning

This Parent Guide has been designed to provide parents with a comprehensive guide to understanding Distance Learning at Odyssey Charter Schools. It contains information on how to support your student, key contact information, tutorials for various technology platforms, and more.

Distance Learning

Odyssey’s unique school design and instructional program educates students in three interdependent learning domains— academic excellence, social emotional wellbeing, and social responsibility. These three domains are seen working in unison throughout our educational program, in every classroom.  Our reopening taskforce was responsible for the creation of reinventing and reimagining our unique school design regardless of the method of delivery.  We prepared for the potential for students to transition between in-person instruction and distance learning model.  To ensure the seamless transition between these two models of instruction, we developed clear and consistent curriculum expectations, technology platforms, and guidelines for both teachers, students and parents.

Through our workshop based approach, we created learning synchronistic learning schedules that meet the instructional minutes requirements by CDE while fulfilling the vision and mission of our charter petition.  Our high quality distance learning program offers a predictable school day balanced with social emotional support, small group instructions and 1:1 instruction to support the individual learning needs of our students. Additionally, to maintain our “learn by doing” approach, we have included and scheduled curriculum learning packet pickups every 3-4 weeks that include: hands on science materials, books, writing notebooks, and Eureka math worksheets for students to complete assignments and independent practice.
