Message from Mr. Broker:

Eagle Community,


The safety and wellbeing of our community is first and foremost during this unprecedented time. The paradigm in which we operate as we move forward will be, for some, a great deal different than where it is under normal circumstances. The impact of COVID-19 in our community will redefine what we deem important and will have us re-evaluate our priorities. It will continue to impact the physical, mental, and economic health of our school community and as such it will also impact how we continue those learning processes for our students. The central point of focus for the district Remote Learning Plan, and how we will navigate this plan with the underlying intent that no student can be negatively impacted by the circumstances of the 4th quarter.


The fact that Eagle Academy operates on a quarterly schedule versus a semester schedule does create some need for adjustment.  This is essential because we have no launching point from a third quarter grade that is used for semester-based schools. This will by no means keep us from holding students harmless in their remote efforts, but it will still create an important expectation that students make an honest attempt to be involved in their learning.  It is the attempt at learning that will be where we place our value.  Students who give effort to their assignments, communications and attempt a good faith effort will have this effort acknowledged. Students who do nothing or choose not to attempt learning in a measurable manner will receive no credit for their class. Teachers will base grades on the percentage of these attempts students make knowing that they will be consistent in the overall assignments being asked.


Once again, these are unprecedented times we are in, and we need to adjust our thinking in terms of what is important.  Everyone has to adjust their personal circumstances based on their situation and we are supportive of this reality.  


From myself and all of the Eagle Academy staff we wish you all health and comfort during these difficult times,


Jeff Broeker

Principal


 


 


           

         IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHANGES IN WORK HOURS AND COMMUNITY SERVICE

  • For Quarter 4 AND Summer, students may earn partial credit (.125 for 45 hours) for Work Experience. We added summer to enable them to get back up to a multiple of .25.

  • All students will be able to earn credits for Work Experience for summer hours.

  • For Quarter 4, students may log community service hours by helping their families; these hours must be logged and submitted during Quarter 4. Douglas County School District has waived the community service requirement for all May/June 2020 graduates; this applies only to those graduating this spring.

  • For Quarter 4, the work requirement for Academic Leave students is waived. Students MAY ask for an additional .25 online course or may log community service hours - see above; however, neither option will be a requirement.

  • Students who have previously passed Work Experience and Career Pathways and who have been released from their jobs due to COVID-19 can continue to take Career Pathways for Quarter 4. 

  • Students on the June 2020 grad list who needed their credit from work hours in order to meet graduation requirements will likely be given an online elective class to complete in place of the Work Experience credit.

  • Ms. Quintana will conduct a survey with all incoming and returning students to determine what their work situation is and what additional changes we may need to make.

Hello Eagles!

 

It was nice to see so many smiling faces Friday!

Please continue to plan on being at Eagle's staff parking lot EVERY Friday at 12:30 for our food drive thru.

We will have groceries and bagged lunches!

 

I have an additional resource for all Eagle students & Families who cannot get to Eagle on Fridays at 12:30. 

If you would like extra help with groceries for the next few weeks, and don't have transportation to Eagle Academy, you can click the link below, and sign up for a grocery program going on while there is remote learning.  Options are to have a box of food delivered to your porch, or a location you can pick up.
