The Wilkinsburg School District understands that this is a unique learning experience for all students. It is important that we have a positive, teacher-family partnership to ensure student learning during this time. Wilkinsburg School District Teachers and Staff have collaborated, designed, and planned lessons to be completed virtually at home. We, as a district, are confident that your child is capable of completing the assignments, activites, and assessments. Please encourage your student to take ownership of their learning, as this is a wonderful opportunity for growth.
Google Classroom will be the main hub for daily instruction, both synchronous and asynchronous. This is where daily assignments, activities, and teacher announcements will be posted.

Synchronous Learning is the mode learning that happens in real time. This means that a teacher, the students, and others interact in a specific virtual place at a set time, through a specific online medium, at a specific time. In other words, it’s not exactly anywhere, anyhow, anytime. Methods of synchronous online learning include video conferencing, teleconferencing, live chatting, live-streaming lectures, and social virtual reality environments. It's scheduled learning.
Asynchronous Learning happens on your own schedule. While your teacher(s) will provide materials for reading, recorded lessons for viewing, assignments for completing, and exams for evaluation, you have the ability to access and satisfy these requirements within a flexible time frame.
