As we begin the new school year, students are engaging in learning in a more varied way than they ever have before. PCHS teachers have been working hard to meet the challenge of providing instruction to a variety of learners that include students who will be engaging in classes remotely.
“Remote” refers to a student who will participate and engage with a class from an off campus location.
Teachers will be responsible for communicating with their remote students on a regular basis as well as providing specific details about things like assignments, due dates, grading and other general expectations.
