Parent Responsibilities for Virtual Students
Please recall that as we outlined in the information provided to you before the start of school, that while the teacher is responsible for providing the curriculum and the instruction, the parental involvement is crucial in order for virtual learning to be successful for a student. It is essential that parents monitor student activity daily, ensure that assignments are completed on time, and encourage students to stay on track. While we understand that many challenges arise from maintaining work schedules and commitments while you are supporting your student's efforts at home, these expectations are vital to the success of your student(s).

If at any time the demands of virtual learning become too difficult for your family to maintain, please know that your student(s) are welcome to return to the classroom for face-to-face instruction- by simply contacting your school’s main office.

Recommended Time on “School Work”
The following are recommendations from the Marion School District for the amount of time (per subject) a student should be engaged in school work each day through any delivery model. This includes instruction and assignments. Recommendations are based on a review of guidance from other states and discussions with local schools and parents. We want parents/students to focus on the process of learning. Engagement is the key to reducing any learning regression.
Recommended Time on “School Work” (per subject)
Grades:
PK-4 -- 30-60 minutes a day, maximum of 5 hours a week
5-8 -- 45-90 minutes a day, maximum of 7 ½ hours a week
9-12 -- 60-150 minutes a day, maximum of 12 ½ hours a week
Students in Honors, AP, or concurrent courses will most likely exceed the recommended times.

All students should be reading regularly in addition to instructional time.

Thank you for supporting your students at the Marion School District.
