Hi from the Larsons
Chaoukis

Neha
32:22
Can you please describe what a typical day would look like for a student?
Simone M
32:22
could you please give an example of how a typical daily schedule, content, would be different from current online model
K
32:24
Is this replacing the global program
Sonja Larson
32:31
How will students with IEP’s be accomodated
LaurelG
32:35
Will there be combo classes?
Janet's iPhoneX
32:54
What’s the diff between online scholar and this?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
33:03
I still dont understand how this is different form in-person? How will material be different? Is it synchronous or asynchronous?
Niru
33:09
Is this replacing the current online scholars?
Ethan Xia
33:22
is the project-based program available for the on-site students?
Andrea
33:24
as business and workplaces start opening up and family schedules may not be as flexible…how much of their time will be at home?
Sabrina Lee
33:45
This does not replace the global education program
Erica Ollmann Saphire
33:47
Is it self-paced? or are they tied to zoom all day?
Andrea
33:50
if they need to meet at safari park or other place…will transportation be provided?
Allison Hansen
34:04
How does the program prepare students for 6th grade in addition to providing an opportunity for project-based work?
Hooraxs
34:07
What if the adress change and no longer with solana beach district ?
John
34:24
how much on-site time will be ? and what do I mean by optional?
Lisa Massura
34:40
How much time do you estimate for the independent/asynchronous time? Will it be similar to OLS where there are say, 3 zooms per day with independent work times in between?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
35:13
It is difficult to make a commitment in the next week when we have so little information about what this is.
Kathy Zorbas
35:25
Will there be a way to accommodate students that are advanced in certain subjects with differential instruction?
Bruce cameron
35:34
is this open to student outside of the district.
Erica Ollmann Saphire
35:46
When you say go slowly, do you mean the instructional pace? or the pace of innovation in the program design?
Neha
35:53
Will students have daily time with their grade level / core academics teacher?
Lisa Massura
36:13
Can you tell us where you plan to house the IEDU program?
Ethan Xia
36:14
you mentioned national partnership, how does that work?
Andrea
36:22
do you know where the classroom will meet if they do go into a class every so often? will it be at the Solon district office or on a campus that has room to house immersiveEDU?
Bruce cameron
36:28
is this open to student outside of the district. if we accept these students and those student require special accomodations, who will cover those costs.
Miles
36:29
What is your teacher - student ratio? What is their background? Will students get feedback on their work? How do we get materials? Emailed or Mailed? Will our children have opportunity to form relationships with teachers or other students?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
36:32
What is the general goal of this program? Is it a different instructional style or speed? Or just to be online?
elena harris
36:40
Can you please clarify whether there will be an entirely on site option offered as part of this program?
iPhone
37:09
Will the students have an opportunity to join extracurricular activities/clubs at their home school? For example, band, sports, etc
Neha
38:00
How is this similar or different from homeschooling?
Andrea
38:35
will we know the number of students that are interested in the program before having to make a decision? from the early survey, it seemed to be low interest but that was before any information was given
Kate Afshar
38:47
This year the amount of screen time varies greatly on the teacher, even within a specific grade. Will there be guidelines on limiting screen time?
Kim Criscuolo
38:59
Have you determined if this will be a “school within a school” model and do you know which school it would be within?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
39:04
What does “more flexibility and autonomy” mean specifically? Is it synchronous or asynchronous? Our child has been frustrated with the extremely slow pace of school - and how little material is actually taught. Would this be different?
iPhone
41:00
Are COVID-19 testings done for the emmersiveEDU students?
Ethan Xia
41:54
can you give a few examples of projects?
Petia Bal
42:01
What is the difference between EDU and the current global program, besides the online component?
John
43:02
when going on-site, how is it different than global (which is also very much project based)
Sirimon O'Charoen
45:51
Everything still sounds very conceptional. How can we really understand what would the learning be like from the core and learning pathways? Especially grade K to 2 levels that they cannot be fully independent in learning. What their actual days would look like and what does the flexibilities mean for these early grades?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
46:20
Echo Sirimon’s question, but for 4th-6th.
Panagiotis Reveliotis
47:55
Are immersive and onsite students going to be tested using the same test standards? Are statistics about the test performance of online and onsite students this year - 2021 - going to be shared with parents? Would it be wise to let parents commit to the program for school year 2021-2022 after this information has been shared?
Nathan Teng
49:41
is there an interest-level threshold below which the district may decide to drop IEDU?
Miles
49:41
Is IEDU a new program or is it in progress with other schools?
Ethan Xia
49:43
how does the partnership outside of district work?
Sonja Larson
49:55
I echo Sermon O’Charoen’s question
Marisa Magana
53:41
Would the once a week onsite /in-person opportunity be for the entire duration of that school day? Is it likely that more days per week onsite would be offered?
David Clayton
55:51
Is there a certain number of students needed to have the IEDU program?
Neha
55:53
I still don't understand how much engagement a student would have with their core teacher. Can you please give a few examples, even if you haven't figure it out yet? Will there be morning meetings? Office hours? A way for kids to learn directly through Zoom?
Ethan Xia
55:53
Is it possible to name a few projects potentially used for the coming year?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
56:29
Is there more information somewhere? I’m still generally confused what this is, and given how many echoes of the “conceptual” question, I think I’m not alone.
Simone M
56:52
echo Neha's question
stan
57:07
for the youngest learners, does this program in practice mean the child needs an adult at all time supporting given the program might change from day to day and week to week? or will there be a weekly structure that would repeat and thus help in planning?
iPhone
58:36
Will the students have the opportunity to attend in-person discovery lab?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
59:38
How firm a commitment are we making? If we don’t like it, can we go back to the classroom? It is difficult to make a commitment by May 21 when so much remains unknown.
Kathy Zorbas
01:00:16
What would the, “Global” aspect look like? Could this be connecting with classrooms around the world?
Simone M
01:00:48
on average do you expect more or less or same direct teacher interaction as compared to current OLS?
Ethan Xia
01:04:32
what kind of projects which will be used for the next year?
Miles
01:04:42
Who may we email with further questions?
Erica Ollmann Saphire
01:04:50
Where can we get more information? It all sounds so vague.
stan
01:05:15
will there be a weekly schedule that repeats to help family planning?
shielacullins
01:05:55
Thank you!
Fallyn’s iPhone
01:05:56
Will material pick up be similar to it was for OLS this year?
Miles
01:06:01
How do we get materials? Is it download and print? Or pick up?
r. neyaz
01:06:04
can you send out a link for the Board Meeting presentation from 3/25/2021?
Angela Tremble
01:06:08
Thank you everyone! We will review and make sure your questions are addressed in FAQ doc if we did not get a chance to address specifically.
Erica Ollmann Saphire
01:06:12
The website the QRQ code links to does not have any information about the program.
Marisa Magana
01:06:14
Thank you!
Sonja Larson
01:06:21

Premi's iPhone
01:06:25
Just want to say thank you! Online scholars has gone so well for our daughter and we really appreciate your efforts! While we are leaning towards in person next year I’m sure what you have to offer will be great!!
Miles
01:13:51
Are the teachers on SBSD payroll? Or is IEDU a separate company that SBSD is contracting to offer this program?
Katharine Lundby
01:17:47
Did I understand correctly that this is based on Harvards project zero?
David Clayton
01:17:56
Thank you. This sounds very exciting and wonderful!
r. neyaz
01:18:05
thank you!
Lisa Massura
01:18:07
