Home-Based Learning Starts April 13

MondayApril 13th we will be ready to start NEW LEARNING for Barker Creek Students. These will not be the previously scheduled Hex 5 courses, but classes created by teachers to be more manageable to complete at home. Students will be invited to google classrooms (through their school email only) containing assignments and reference materials starting MONDAY, April 13th. If you/your student hasn’t been invited to a class by 10 am Monday, please send me your student's homeroom teacher an email so we can troubleshoot the issue.

Staff have been working hard creating new classes and opportunities for Classroom-Based Students to earn credits. Please take a moment to watch the videos below for details on what classes are offered and scheduling looks like, as well as how our google classrooms will look and function. If you are unable to view the videos, bulleted notes are provided after each. These videos will also be available for reference on the BCCS home page under Announcements as well as the school's Facebook page under videos.

Students are encouraged to check in with homeroom teachers weekly to provide updates. Our goal is for students to finish UP TO 6 semester classes between now and June and weekly contact with homeroom teachers will be vital in ensuring appropriate progress is being made through each of these classes.

Thank you for your patience as we learn state and district guidelines around schooling, and giving teachers time to plan and create curriculum that is appropriate for home learning and accessible to as many students as possible. We are all learning, and while not perfect, we are proud of the structure we have in place to help students through the end of the school year.

For your convenience, we've included a list of all classes being offered from now until June below, with the teachers email addresses listed. Please refer to this list if you have specific questions with the classes you/your student is currently taking.
