Our first priority at Mary B. Austin is to ensure all of our students, faculty, staff, parents, and community are safe and practicing social distancing to maintain a healthy environment. We want to make sure all of our students have an opportunity to extend their learning and ensure their educational growth continues until in-school practices are deemed safe to return to the building. Mary B. Austin will launch Schoology, an on-line learning platform, which all students and parents can access at home through their internet browser.
All teachers will have their Schoology Courses set up with assignments dedicated to enrich student's 1st quarter learning standards for the 2020 - 2021 school year. These assignments will be updated daily and teachers will provide feedback to student work as well as go live throughout the day to check for understanding. This is a great time for students and teachers to increase their learning skills with 21st century technology lessons. Our school has prepared our students to learn with technology in our Innovation Labs, in the classroom and with their use of the 4Cs. We at Austin believe in our students and know that they are prepared to "Own our learning" and show us that this will not hold them back! If you should have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher through their Schoology Course or email.
