 Appeal Process

 If a student/parent wants to appeal placement, they need to send an email detailing why they believe the child should be in Honors.  The email should be sent to the 6th grade teacher and to me at jeffreymorano@iusd.org.  From there, I will use multiple data points and may follow-up with teachers for writing samples and/or for further insights.  From there, placement will be determined and communicated with parents.

Residency Verification

The Irvine Unified School District will once again require residency verification for all IUSD students enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year. This process is an annual legal requirement in California and it helps our district ensure that all available resources are spent efficiently and effectively to the benefit of our Irvine families. Moreover, these additional steps will help provide a full and precise accounting of our student population as we review staffing for the coming year.

For additional information, please contact the Sierra Vista Front Office.

Blended Learning

Blended learning is a 21st century learning environment where some of the learning takes place face-to-face in a school setting, and some of the learning takes place in an online environment. The online environment can be synchronous, meaning the students and teachers are interacting in a real-time environment (such as a live, online classroom, or through collaborative documents), or in an asynchronous environment, meaning students collaborate with peers, interact with multimedia content and submit assignments at various time during the school week.

Blended learning requires a high level of personal responsibility, as the learner must take the initiative to show mastery of learning and complete certain course objectives independently. It is important to know that while blended learning allow for some flexibility in terms of when and where assignments are completed, students must meet certain checkpoints and remain on pace throughout the semester. Students in blended learning are expected to show academic integrity and use technology responsibly for the purposes of education.

 

Students interested in the Blended Learning Program, please see the linked information packet. If you have questions or wish to register, please contact your middle school counselor.
