    • Homework will be assigned to each student, according to our Homework Policy and Procedures.

  2. Order materials/curriculum to be mailed out to parent. (distance-learning students)

    • Once you receive your curriculum, set out one PACE in each subject for the student.

    • Remove the Tests from the PACEs and label a file folder to keep test in until they are ready to be administered.

    • Student is to prepare/set his or her Goals for the week. (will be mailed out)

    • Homework will be assigned to each student, according to our Homework Policy and Procedures. 

  3. Oversee the working of the PACEs.

    • The student “raises his flag” by emailing or (chat) texts the supervisor when he is ready to begin a new PACE.
    • The supervisor communicates directly with the student through the LearnCube platform, listening as the student reads.
  • Reading

    • The student “raises his flag” emailing or (chats) texts the supervisor when he needs to read.

    • The supervisor communicates directly with the student through the LearnCube platform, listening as the student reads.

    • The student studies the materials and works on activities independently.

    • The student “raises his flag” by emailing or (chats) texts the supervisor if he has an academic question.

    • The supervisor communicates directly with the student through the LearnCube platform, assisting the student with his need.

    • When the student reaches a score strip, he follows the scoring procedures in the Scoring Procedures section below.

  • Self Tests

    • The student “raises his flag” by emailing or (chat) texts the supervisor when he is ready for the Self Test.

    • Through the LearnCube platform, the supervisor checks the PACE and quizzes the student before giving permission to take the Self Test.

    • After the Self Test is scored and corrected, the student reviews the entire PACE before notifying the supervisor that he is ready to turn it in to his or her parent.

    • Through the LearnCube platform, the supervisor evaluates whether the student is ready for the PACE Test. He or She then directs the student to turn in the PACE to his or her parent.

    • The supervisor prays with the student, and the student takes the Test under the supervision parent or video camera is facing testing area.

    • The student takes a picture of the completed Test and sends to the supervisor for scoring.

    • The supervisor records the score, then notifies the student/parent by email.

Scoring Procedures

  1. When the student reaches a score strip, he notifies the supervisor by “raises his flag” via text or email.

  2. The supervisor communicates directly with the student through the LearnCube platform.

  3. The student calls out his answers (or shows the page to the monitor) while the supervisor checks the Score Key.

  4. The supervisor informs the student of any incorrect answers, and the student marks his answers with a red X.

  5. The student continues as above until everything is corrected and rescored.

  6. If the student has a question about scoring or does not understand the work, he contacts the supervisor for academic help.

Using Video Conferencing in the Virtual Learning Center

  1. Communications on the LearnCube platform will focus on academics as in the classroom setting.

  2. When the student needs assistance, he “raises his flag” by contacting me through (chat) text or email. I will then communicate directly with the student through the LearnCube platform.

  3. Remember at times, I may be busy helping other students. The student should work on other subjects while waiting for his “flag” to be answered.

The Role of Parents in a Virtual Learning Center

Since the student is learning at home, the parents have some responsibilities.

  1. Provide a quiet and bright place as the student “office,” which will help reduce distractions while the student is learning.

  2. Check on the student from time to time to be sure he is staying on task.

  3. Motivate and encourage the student.

  4. Discipline the student when necessary. I will communicate with the parents briefly after Virtual Learning Center time, if there is an issue that needs to be addressed, and we will work together to help the student.

  5. Ensure the student is maintaining dress code in the Virtual Learning Center.

Daily Schedule

To make the Virtual Learning Center efficient, a formal schedule is still necessary.

  1. Opening Exercises – We will continue to start each day as normal with our Daily Biblical Devotion through LearnCube platform.

  1. PACE Times - PACE times of 30-60 minutes, depending on the age group of the students, should be followed, just as in a regular Learning Center.

  2. Break Times – Lunch will be from 11:30-12:15 noon each time, unless otherwise noted. I encourage students to do some physical exercises inside or outside of the house at break time.

  3. Goal Setting and Checking - Before the end of the day, the student sets goals for the next day. After setting goals, the student takes a picture of the Goal Card and sends it to me to be checked.

  4. Homework Assignment Slips – According to our Homework assigned days, I will fill out the Homework Assignment slip start filling out the slips at 2:30pm and send a picture of it to each parent. Parents are responsible for making sure the work is completed, the slip is signed and sent back to me.

  5. Closing Exercises - Closing Exercises take place through group video conferencing at the same time each day (2:40pm). This is a great time for encouragement, praise, and prayer.
