GHC Launch: Distance Learning

Click HERE to view the iGranada Launch learning schedule.

Throughout the school closure, Granada Hills Charter teachers will use Google Classroom for all of our students' courses. With Google Classroom, students will have access to lectures, class discussions, assignments, projects, and other online resources. We recognize that this is not a perfect substitute for the high quality, in-person instruction offered by our GHC teachers. We encourage you to check your Google Classroom and GHC email on a regular basis and make every effort to complete the assignments. 

Some of the tools we will be using include the following:

  • Google Classroom for posting of assignments, sharing resources, and submission of completed assignments
  • Google Hangouts for video conferencing, student discussion groups, and other collaborative work
  • Open Online Access Tools, to access videos, podcasts, and other online resources. These could include TedTalks, Youtube, Khan Academy, Tutor.com, etc.
  • Program-specific resources such as AP Classroom®, the International Baccalaureate shared folder, etc.  
 

Granada Hills Charter is committed to supporting the completion of course work during this closure. The following are the general components of the online structure:

  • Student participation in online lessons
  • Work submitted electronically via Google Classroom 
  • Teacher feedback and grades will continue to be delivered via Google Classroom and through the Home Access Center (HAC)
  • Regular teacher and student communication via email, Google Classroom Announcements, and Google Chat
  • Online discussion boards via Google Classroom
