This group has been quiet long enough. Here is my attempt.
How is home schooling going everyone?

I have been crazy busy! I am slowly getting around to the 50 Shades website.
Homeschooling is good. My teen is adapting quite well. She has social anxiety so I think she is enjoying the social distancing a little too much. I am afraid she will want to homeschool after this. She says she does not want to go back to school. I think a part of it is transitioning to high school in the fall.

My daughter is not missing school at all. Most of her friends she chats with online anyway.
We had some computer bugs to work out but we weren’t the only ones. The teachers have so far been understanding about them getting their assignments in. The teachers are also realizing how clearly written their directions have to be!

How is your school board/district dealing with final grades this year?

I have no idea until it is all done. But I think we are done with the year they just haven’t announced it

It does have it’s ups and downs. Today it is okay but it good be better. Technically making her do work even though in our state she is already done. But she needs to keep her mind working.

We have the same thing with Bethany. With Brianna, her last report card grades from February are her ending grades for this year. At her grade, they have the choice of improving their grades or taking further credits online. Brianna has excellent grades and would like to take two courses for next year.
For my dearest Bethany, her grade is getting a pass/fail, so she got a pass of course. But, and this is the big but, I can’t have this child of mine being idle for months and months, so we have told her that she will take a math and writing course. She is not happy with this, with her argument that she gets no credit for it. She is taking the two courses whether she agrees or not. When it comes to education, this is not a democracy.
Am I right?

Home based learning has been ok. The teachers have all created learning platforms that allow them to deliver assignments for the week through email or an engine like Google 365 and their Teams video conferencing. Our school division has told them to make a primary focus on ELA, Math, and PE and to teach other subjects as they’re able to. At the elementary level this works really well as there’s 1 teacher for each grade at almost all of our schools (our division is all small town and rural schools) so they know the kids and what they’ll be able to achieve at home. At the jr high (at Anja’s school) level the teachers have each taken a subject and teaches it to all the kids of their chosen grade level. This for the most part has been successful. The ELA teacher has been a little aggressive in her assignments and we’re finding Anja’s getting easily overwhelmed by it. Each of the teachers has set up a video conference class room hour for each home room group once a week so they can do some instruction and the kids can talk through the assignments for that week and ask questions/have some social time.
Is regards to grades the marks they got on their term 3 report cards (in Feb) will be their final grades for the year. However we’ve been told that with this home based learning structured as it is the kids won’t be able to lose grades but they will be able to pull them up if the teacher sees fit. The focus really is on making sure they have the knowledge they need to succeed in the fall over what their grades are.
