This year we are doing an open schedule to help teach students from across the nation, in any time zone! You are not expected to attend every class, as there are duplicates. Earlier classes will work better for those on the East Coast, while later classes will work better for those on the West Coast. Pick times that work best for you, just make sure you make time for Math, Science, History, Language Arts, and Religion! The following schedule is according to Mountain Time, so plan accordingly.

Following a Zoom meeting we had with several of you, we are excited to announce our new suggested schedule for next year, based on your recommendations! You will notice that the year is divided into two semesters. One beginning September 3 and going to January 16, and the second semester beginning January 21 until May 21. You’ll also notice that we have added more classes, rather than teaching the same class multiple times. We are also including elective classes on Fridays, as you will see on the attached schedule. In addition, we are following your suggestion to have scheduled testing weeks throughout the year, so that everyone can be on the same track. We will also be holding monthly parent coordination and training meetings to allow us to make adjustments throughout the year, and better serve you. Another suggestion was that we have a weekly 30-minute social time together so the students can become more engaged with each other online. This we will rotate within the different classes so that all students will be able to participate as they so desire. We will also be encouraging more participation from the students, as you recommended, so they can be part of the teaching experience. More details will be forthcoming, but we hope with these changes and additions, this schedule will be set up in a way that a your family can register for whatever classes are best for your schedule and interest. You can select individual classes, or all. We welcome your feedback and any additional suggestions so that by September, 2019, we can have the KA Distance Learning program developed so it will be helpful and beneficial to you all. Thank you so much for your wonderful support, dedication, and friendship.

But during class time, please keep discussion (including chats) with other students relevant to the class subject.Similarly, please keep comments relevant to the class subject.In short, imagine this is classroom. Things that can distract others in the classroom can be equally distracting online. First Time ConnectionYou will need to create a free account at Zoom.us before you can join the class. If you are logging into the Junior and Senior classes at the same time, you will need to create a second account, as Zoom will not allow you to be on multiple meetings with one account.AudioA common issue for new Zoom users is audio problems. If everyone else can hear each other, then we know there is a mic or speaker problem you are having. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting your camera can fix this issue, other times you may need to leave and rejoin the Zoom program, or even restart your computer. Generally, though, you just need to Connect Audio Device, using the little icon in the bottom left corner of your Zoom window. If you cannot hear us, it probably looks like headphones, or a microphone. You can do this by clicking the ^ arrow to the right of your microphone, as shown below, then clicking a speaker and microphone option. If you see the headphones instead, try clicking the headphones to connect your audio to the conference. If that is not available, then leave the meeting, and then join again. VideoIf you cannot see us, you may have slow internet. You can do a speed test to see if you have enough speed. Typically you want to have at least 2-3 mbs upload and download speeds for a clear and steady picture, though more is always better.If we cannot see you, you may need to plug in your webcam. If it is already plugged in, turn it on with the camera button in the bottom left of your screen. Move your mouse (desktop) or tap the screen (mobile) to view your Zoom meeting controls.Additional HelpIf you are still having problems, please contact us.
