Parent Questions and Answers

Posted by Tom Iannucci on 8/10/2020

Is the textbook and iPad event this and next the same as the previously scheduled registration day?

No it is a new schedule, please check the Revere Website

Will the virtual day match the normal school day? 50 minute individual classes? Or will it be a schoology dump of daily assignments and periodic zoom meetings?

The schedule agreed upon by the District and UTLA provides for a combination of live and independent work. The hope is that teachers will provide live instruction on a daily basis. But, this agreement has yet to be ratified by both parties

When will my children know their schedules?

Tentative schedules are available on Schoology as of today, there may be some changes over this week. Schedules will be finalized as of Monday, August 17

On what days and at what times are my children going to be in virtual class?

Based on the tentative schedule provided by the District live classes should meet daily 

When will schedules be released with times and teachers?

Schedules can be found on Schoology

How is daily activity will look like? Is it gonna be virtual class room same schedules as campus? From 7:55-2pm or 3 pm?

Based on the tentative agreement between UTLA and the District school will begin at 9am and end at 2:15 daily with a combination of both live and individual instruction. 

My Brother has logged into his Schoology account and received his textbooks yet when he goes to check his classes it states hes not currently enrolled in any.

Check again, they went live yesterday. If this has not changed reach out to your counselor 

Will my child receive instructor-led lessons with supporting homework?

How many hours of zoom will it be weekly? How will he know who his new 8th grade teachers will be?

I see Advisory/Independent work time every day before and after lunch. How many days a week will an individual 6th grader participate in Advisory? (2) On the days that my student doesn't have Advisory, can I assume that he will have an Independent study/lunch/break from 11:30-1? (3) If a student doesn't need extra support/intervention, will Mondays essentially be an independent work day?

All students will meet with their advisory daily, students will be split into one of two advisories, there break will be depend on which advisory they are enrolled in.

Monday will be an opportunity for all students to work with their teachers but on a rotating basis, every other week.

Hi, I saw that one parent requested group work. I totally understand this for the social reasons, but please please ask the teachers not to use group work on graded assignments. It was so hard to collaborate last year, and, the work almost always ends up falling to one child. There is really no way for a teacher to monitor online group projects effectively or fairly.

This is up to the individual teacher, you can make that request to your child’s teacher directly.

How would all of this work?

RE: Fender+LA Unified Fall Music Program (9/16-12/12): I just checked, and enrollment is at full capacity. But if the student already has an instrument, can he join in on the zoom instruction?

I have an 8th grader who is linked to my Schoology sign in/account. How do I add my incoming 6th grader? I've been signing in separately using his LAUSD email and password to Thank you!

All Schoology questions should be directed to the counseling office: 

Last year i got a hotspot for my kid how can i get one for her this year.

Yes, contact your counselor: 

Where do I view my child’s classes and will lockers be assigned ?

Lockers will not be assigned at this point, should we return to campus lockers will be assigned then.

Is service worker a possible class option this semester or is that impossible with online learning?

Service workers were all put in Career Awareness class, which will have weekly assignments meant to challenge students to think about their future.
