Assistant Superintendent’s Office

Welcome from Assistant Superintendent Louise Seitsinger

Welcome to our Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction district web page.  It is an honor and pleasure to support our district in improving teaching and learning.  We are in a continuous cycle of building a comprehensive and cohesive system of curriculum that includes input from our entire school community.  Our goal is for all students to have access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum.  All administrators, teachers, and students should be clear regarding the grade level and content expectations.  Through this web page we will share curriculum documents, current district goals, and other resources.

District Virtual/Distance Learning Plan

Here is a quick summary from our Distance Learning Plan which has been approved by RI Department of Education in November 2021:  Please refer to the NPSD Distance Learning Plan for more specific information.  You may also reach out to your child’s teacher and/or principal with any questions you may have.  


Elementary: 
1. Teachers will post assignments to their existing Google Classrooms or Class Dojo. 
2.  Teachers will also support students through direct instruction using Google Meets.    (Typically ELA and Math are supported through live instruction.)
Middle:
Teachers will post assignments to their existing Google classrooms for asynchronous learning.
Some teachers will utilize a Google meet to instruct their classroom at the specific class meeting time of the calendar rotation. This will be posted in the team email as well as conveyed to the students in the morning advisory. 
Each team has a listserv specific to the students they serve, to be able to send out a mass communication outlining the day’s activities.
High:
Teachers use Google Form attendance documents to have students check-in.  Some might use a question of the day everyone has to answer as what they count for attendance.  Either way, teachers ask for first period students to complete this within the first fifteen minutes of the day so the DAY’S attendance can be recorded appropriately.  
Teachers have tasks running throughout the week and engage through online posted assignments, tasks, activities.  Teachers are available through e-mail and online Google Meets.

Student Attendance:  Per RI Department of Education, student attendance will take place each day.  Students are expected to attend online or distance learning during this period of time from physical school. Here are the schedules they will be adhering to for the Distance Learning Day – same as a regular school day:
Elementary 8:55 a.m. -3:12 p.m. 
 Middle 8:30 a.m.  – 2:30 p.m.
NPHS  7:35 a.m. – 1:55 p.m.

This will happen in the following way:
– Teachers will determine student attendance daily by one of the following, as determined by the individual teacher:
– Using Dojo, Padlet, Google Classroom, Virtual meetings, Student email, etc.
– Attendance will be recorded into Skyward Student Portal.
– School secretaries, administrators, support staff may call students who have not logged in each day


If our Distance Learning period is extended in any way: 
– After several (2) consecutive days of not being “present”, support staff and/or principal will reach out to families
– In the event of all of the above attempts being unsuccessful, students will be referred to the truancy officer for support
