Learning from home

Barrow County School System is moving to a learning from home model during our school closure. We expect families to continue to focus on the learning for your child. We have compiled learning activities and teachers are creating online learning opportunities across grade levels. We hope you spend the next two weeks utilizing these learning activities and use it as an opportunity to connect with your child. 

Parents and students will be able to communicate with teachers through email, REMIND, ClassDojo, or whatever system method your teacher uses for regular communication. Parents should contact their child’s teacher or principal with any questions regarding assignments and resources. Visit our directory to find your child's teacher. 

We’d love to see your learning at home! Please share a photo or video of your child engaging in these learning activities. Be sure to tag Barrow County School System.

If you have issues with technology, please reach out to your child’s teacher or email Student Support

Pre-K - Grade 5

Review and practice activities will be posted and accessible through the system and school web pages starting on Monday, March 16th. We will have the links to those pages listed below. Teachers may send additional communication to their students. 

Grades 6-12

Teachers will post assignments, lessons, and enrichment activities via email and/or Google Classroom starting on Monday, March 16th. All teachers will be contacting your student directly. If you do not receive any communication, you can find your teacher's email on our employee directory. If you don't hear from your teacher, contact your school's principal. If a student does not have a computer or access to the internet, please email your principal.

We will use Fridays as a day for students and staff to get caught up with the week's assignments and work. Students who have submitted assignments for the week can read, use digital resources for reinforcement/enrichment, or spend some much-needed time getting fresh air outside. Teachers will continue to be available on Fridays to help students get caught up on all assignments.

Your student's learning activities are a continuation and reinforcement of your child’s learning that are aligned with Georgia Standards of Excellence. Please follow your teacher's directions regarding your learning activities. We've also provided additional learning resources below that students can utilize.

Please check the system and school web pages regularly for updates.

In a March 20 announcement, the Georgia Department of Education said not to expect state testing for the 2019-2020 school year.

The College Board is posting updates on their website about the SAT and Advanced Placement classes. Please visit those two pages for more information. ACT updates are posted on their website.

Students are encouraged to continue learning using free resources:

All special education teachers will be available to instructionally assist their students. BCSS special education teachers will be available for communicating with parents/guardians of both students on their caseload and with special education students they teach. Special education teachers will plan and implement differentiated instruction to include modifications and accommodations as outlined in Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for their students, to the extent possible in a digital learning environment. Assistive technologies, to include items such as text read-aloud, will be made available to those students requiring such accommodations as outlined in IEPs.

On Monday, March 30, we will begin scheduling virtual IEP meetings through either videoconferencing or phone conferencing for some special education students. From March 30 to April 3, our teachers will be focusing on hosting meetings for those IEP’s that have been due in the past two weeks. Your student’s caseload manager may be contacting you to schedule a virtual IEP meeting through the video conferencing platform Google Meets. A quick start guide for Google Meets can be found here. Phone conferencing will also be available as an option through the Remind App. Your student’s caseload manager is available to help and answer questions as needed with regards to this process.
