COVID-19 Information

Dear High Tech High Families,

In a previous email we outlined HTH's plan for implementing distance learning in the event we did not reopen schools on April 7th.  San Diego Unified School District released a press release last night, indicating that they will not be returning on April 6th and will be implementing distance learning for all of their schools through the month of April.  We have officially decided that we follow suit and will not return for in person instruction on April 7th.

When HTH teachers return on April 6th, they will spend that week designing and piloting plans for distance learning.  We will be reaching out for your thoughts and feedback as we do this work.

We will roll out our approach to distance learning the week of April 13th and you will receive detailed information from your child’s teachers about what to expect going forward.  We are asking teachers to plan for their first distance learning module from April 13th - May 8th. Our hope is that by that time, we may be able to return to school, but if that is not the case, we will begin a second module that will run until the end of the year.

Leaders and teachers from across High Tech High have been working to design a framework for distance learning at our schools and create the infrastructure necessary to support that plan.  We’ll continue to engage in this work over spring break using your input regarding your technology access to help us craft an approach tailored to our community’s needs.

If your family currently does not have reliable internet access, please see the options that local internet companies are offering as families try to stay informed.  Getting Internet Access: Available Plans https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/availableinternetplans.asp

Thank you for your patience and support.

Estimadas HTH familias,

En un correo electrónico anterior, describimos el plan de HTH para implementar el aprendizaje a distancia en caso de que no volviéramos a abrir las escuelas el 7 de abril. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Diego lanzó un comunicado de prensa anoche, indicando que no regresarán el 6 de abril y que implementarán el aprendizaje a distancia para todas sus escuelas durante el mes de abril. Hemos decidido oficialmente que hacemos lo mismo y no volveremos para recibir instrucción en persona el 7 de abril.

Cuando los maestros de HTH regresan el 6 de abril, pasarán esa semana diseñando y poniendo a prueba planes para el aprendizaje a distancia. Nos pondremos en contacto para solicitar sus pensamientos y comentarios mientras hacemos este trabajo.

Implementaremos nuestro enfoque de la educación a distancia la semana del 13 de abril y su familia recibirá información detallada de los maestros de su hijo/a sobre qué esperar en el futuro. Estamos pidiendo a los maestros que planifiquen su primer módulo de aprendizaje a distancia para el 13 de abril al 8 de mayo. Nuestra esperanza es que para ese momento, podamos regresar a la escuela, pero si ese no es el caso, comenzaremos un segundo módulo que se ejecutará hasta el final del año escolar.

Los líderes y maestros de High Tech High han estado trabajando para diseñar un marco de referencia para el aprendizaje a distancia en nuestras escuelas y crear la infraestructura necesaria para apoyar ese plan. Continuaremos participando en este trabajo durante las vacaciones de primavera, utilizando su aportación con respecto a su acceso a la tecnología para ayudarnos a diseñar un enfoque adaptado a las necesidades de nuestra comunidad.

Si su familia actualmente no tiene acceso confiable a internet, vea las opciones que las compañías locales de internet ofrecen mientras las familias intentan mantenerse informadas. Obtención de acceso a Internet: planes disponibles https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/availableinternetplans.asp

Gracias por su paciencia y apoyo.

HTH TOURS AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EDUCATORS

In late March and early April, the HTH Graduate School of Education is launching several self-paced online classes for both educators and students. Please complete this form to learn more about these classes and receive invitations to the classes that interest you.

 

Student Guided Tourmiddle_schools

These tours are led by current high school students and introduce educators to the student experience of High Tech High. These tours are free of charge and are not for prospective students, guardians and families.

 

Extended Visit

Extended Visits are for groups who would like an opportunity to see High Tech High firsthand and learn from current teachers and school leaders. This extended experience provides participants a chance to experience a student guided tour, a meeting with HTH leadership, a lunch panel with teachers or students and classroom observations.

 

Custom Residency

Custom Residencies strive to facilitate teaching practices and structures to help our participants design and implement equitable learning experiences in their own context. The workshops, presentations and activities facilitated by HTH staff and faculty offer a comprehensive lens into project based learning and HTH design principles. Participants are actively immersed in the HTH K-12 setting to witness deeper learning in action, through student guided tours, classroom observations, interactive discussions and HTH leadership meetings. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided.

 

Fall, Winter and Spring Institutes

Each school year the High Tech High Graduate School of Education facilitates three large professional development events at our Point Loma campus. These Institutes are in-depth experiences. For more information, please check out our HTH Graduate School of Education Institutes.

Tours for prospective HTH families can be scheduled via the Admissions Office during our admissions season from October 1, 2019 to February 7, 2020. More information can be found at https://www.hightechhigh.org/admissions/student-tour-signup-page/.
