Hello Cincinnati Public Schools in Cincinnati, Ohio!

That’s a great idea
cheryl mitchell
01:11:20
I am a school social worker in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Our school district remains completely virtual and school social workers have been advised not to conduct home visits out of an abundance of caution for personal safety. Myself and my colleagues are struggling with disengaged students and parents who refuse to ensure the student participates in remote learning. We have provided devices, hotspots, phone calls, google meets etc.......Any suggestions will be helpful
Jonique Donald
01:12:27
90% Virtual attendance? That’s awesome. I would like to hear more strategies used to support virtual attendance.
Cathy Wolfenden

Erica Forti, Superintendent, East Haven Public School District, CT
Fiorella Guevara (she/her)
01:12:53
We had teachers call families and ask them if it would be ok to a virtual home visit so that they could meet the teachers. Then we made sure it worked for families— for some of them video did not work so we just did audio. For others, they wanted to do WhatsApp….we met our parents where they were at in the virtual world. We kept the virtual visits to 30 mins.
Cathy Wolfenden
01:13:04

Jonique Donald
01:13:36
In terms of the 90% virtual attendance how is attendance defined? Students attended all classes? Or logged in at the beginning of the day?
Fiorella Guevara (she/her)
01:13:50
I personally did in-person home visits to our incoming 6th graders who were only doing remote and brought them tech, books & materials

Jamie Allen
01:15:53
I’m in the same situation as Cheryl. They may be on zoom, and our county counts that as present, but they are not turning in any assignments.
Jamie Allen
01:15:59
our county is doing home visits but they are supposed to be for kids who have not made any contact
Regina Ward
01:16:20
Is anyone from Birmingham City School on? If so do we have virtual home visits?
Kimberly Crockett

@monica how does that work ?
Fiorella Guevara (she/her)

Data trackers for communication: google spreadsheets that was shared with all teachers doing home visits. Did training with the teachers who needed additional help with spreadsheets. We didn’t make it overcomplicated— very simple spreadsheets

Sue Fothergill
01:21:15
Covid-19 infection rates in her area of CT are extremely low. 80% of the students went back to school and 20% are joining virtually.
Ashton Brown
01:21:22
@monica what if students are not logging in?
Nicole Boone
01:22:03
Do teachers have the choice to stay home to teach virtually if they are uncomfortable?
Ashton Brown
01:22:12
@ Monica please email me after this I am interested ashtonbrown@richmond.k12.nc.us
Shannon Gratopp
01:22:18
Working with Low income families, many families are seeking wifi ways to balance working from home or not being home but added challenge to get kids involved with the Zoom lessons and activites. Not all schools back to face to face. So we had a lot drop off before the end of the school year, but now we are back at getting them to be actiove
Monica Cheatham
01:22:20
@Ashton, we would then contact the parents and basically run interference
Fiorella Guevara (she/her)
01:22:46
Re: attendance for MS 50: in the spring— it was about “engagement” so if there was any contact with them, it was counted as being in virtual school. However, that didn’t work for us because that meant that many of our students disconnected. Now, the expectation is that they attend every live class and attendance is taken for every class. So that 90% attendance rate we have now is based on students attending multiple live classes in a day.
LeTanya Lawrence
01:22:52
Each school district in Connecticut have a different reopening plan as approved by the state. This is based on their local data.
LeTanya Lawrence
01:23:31
Where I live in Danbury Connecticut, we are fully remote base don the spikes in our COVID data in August.
Catherine Cooney
01:24:02
Hi everyone! Type your questions into this chat box, and we will pass them to our speakers.
LeTanya Lawrence
01:24:19
So it varies between town and city. We all follow the same state guidance in developing our plans.

Kaiser Permanente also has a great resource https://thrivingschools.kaiserpermanente.org/get-inspired/coronavirus-response/schools-reopening-playbook/
Courtney Klingman
01:25:56
For the presenters- do your school districts allocate specific time in the teacher's day for family engagement/ parent connection? Or is this something that teachers are expected to do after hours/on breaks during the day?
Shannon Gratopp
01:26:27
As a family advocate for Head Start we do the best we can to do exactly that, get them kindergarten Ready and it was for sure very challenging this summer
Jennyffer Barrientos
01:26:33
HI everyone! How are you going about families that are doing distance learning, and caregivers do not speak English and are also not tech savvy and are working most of the day? Therefore they are not home to make sure that the student is logging in.
Nicole Boone
01:26:40
@LeTanya ...Interesting...but it still doesn't answer the question about "teachers who are uncomfortable returning" regardless of full reopening or half & half.

We have 1 person that hosts and opens up the zoom and transitions students from one class to the next
Christopher Chenault
01:28:06
How are you engaging the disengaged parent, who wants to "home school" so they do not have to follow the routine and schedule. It is more about the parent not wanting to do it, than it being a "can't" issue.

01:28:47
For example, 6th grade all remote: We have homeroom, social studies, art, math, PE or independent reading, lunch, science and ELA. The students use the same zoom link to log in the morning
Fiorella Guevara (she/her)
01:29:35
And only leave the zoom when the coordinator tells them that they can log off. We give them breaks between classes and take attendance at each class.
Sue Fothergill
01:29:41
A copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar will be disseminated 72 hours after the webinar.

when a student requests to talk with an adult, how do you address parent informed consent?
Vernitra Dobbins
01:38:11
Thanks for the link!
Nicole Boone
01:38:16
Safety, health, and wellbeing of the students must be addressed first and should take precedence over attendance in the virtual classroom setting. Same for staff.
Nicole Boone
01:38:36
Your 3rd bullet-point is VITAL!
Susanne Bell
01:38:46
For Sheri, what sort of support are school staff requesting?
Ricardo Padilla
01:39:15
Teachers teaching from home or school is in some states and some districts a collective bargaining topic. This also affects the teacher's aides, cafteria workers, and other support staff. It is also a collective bargaining topic for them. Boards of education are making those decisions. I agree health should come first and it should be left up to the individuals to make that choice. Districts should not force employees (teachers or aides) to come to school. Make public comments at your town's board meeting.

How do motivate high response level for surveys? We are missing a big chunk of data from stakeholders who do not complete the survey.
Sheri Hanni
01:41:58
We find a fairly high response rate for Kelvin pulses. They stay open for about a week-set by the school and are very easy to open and respond.

Smart Connection and Trama Smart training was the best thing our team was able to train staff for those who work with the low income areas.
Nicole Boone
01:44:36
"Districts should not force employees (teachers or aides) to come to school." I agree with you Ricardo. I've been encouraging teachers/educators/colleagues to speak-out and advocate for themselves regarding this, but some fear the outcome.
Brenda Lopez
01:44:44
We use ParentSquare and also very affordable but its an App that can send txt, unfortunately still not as effective during distance learning
Sheri Hanni
01:45:08
The Kelvin team is very responsive and understand the challenges from their own experience. 2 of the 3 cofounders dropped out at age 16 due to not feeling supported or having relationships that allowed them to ask for help.
Brenda Lopez
01:45:19
Zeke Cohen, I need to learn more about this work, thank you

CPS question- generally CPS does not respond due to attendance issues. They will get involved if there is evidence of abuse or neglect, but absenteeism does not fall in and of itself as abuse.
Sue Fothergill
01:58:40
Certificates are not automatically disseminated. If you need one you should email a request.
Christopher Chenault

isn't it neglect?

In CA, being online for any time, completing any work for the day or having contact with a staff member counts as attendance in virutla leating
John Prosser
02:02:19
In our state, attendance right now is measured by a few means - if they show up to the Zoom class. Or, if they miss Zoom, if they reach out to the teacher that day and have a contact that demonstrates they’re learning/doing their work. But our state has a special category of absences right now (for a few more days) that codes it as COVID related.
Gerilyn Larosn
02:02:28
We track attendance by the child being in class or virtually. Basically if they get a meal whether at a center or through our delivered meals/virtual we count them as present.
Erica Forti
02:02:29
We are using our state guidance on defining what it means to be present for the day. https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/SDE/COVID-19/Addendum-14-Supporting-Student-Attendance.pdf

Michelle Bianchi
02:03:16
attendance at our school is…..if students are logged in during the meat of the instruction on the 3-4 times a day they sign on as well as doing 1-2 assignments.
Virginia Thomas

In Birmingham, a student is counted present by logging in, participating in class, and submitting packet assignments.

Laurie Butler

CPS and attendance- we have to utilize our SARB process and address it as a legal issue. Often chronic absenteeism is often a sign of neglect, but not necessarily.
Linda Bell
02:04:51
Archaic system!

I think as time passes and at some point are no longer in a pandemic we have a lot of experiences and information we will need to evaluate. In doing so we are going to need to be honest and make some hard yet consequential decisions relative to the continuation of some of our new learning models and teaching practices
