Distance Learning at Chavez

  • Since March 2020, Chavez, along with schools across the country, has been faced with unprecedented challenges.
  • In the Spring of 2020, when all instruction went online, we utilized Google Classrooms for synchronous and asynchronous learning.  While we engaged more than 99% of our school community over the Spring, we knew we needed to ensure we were meeting all scholars where they were and provide a more cohesive learning environment for our scholars.
  • All Chavez scholars have a Chromebook to use at home to support their learning and any who need internet access have been issued hot spots.
  • In the Fall of 2020, we adopted Schoology as our Learning Management System and adopted a synchronous schedule for all scholars Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm with Wednesday as an asynchronous day for scholars and a Professional Development day for staff. 
  • We provide daily and weekly opportunities for our scholars to connect with each other through daily Advisory, Mid-Day Meet-Ups during lunch and weekly Grade Level Town Halls.
  • Our daily in-seat attendance rate is 91.6% which is more than 4% above the charter sector average in DC.
