Update 4/20/2020:
Office Hours: Tuesday 8-9 am; Wednesday 11:00-12:00; by appointment.
This week we are working on A.2 and AFDA.2. Please see classroom files for detailed plans.

Optional Assignment Grading Rubric: Please note that these are points that will be added to your student's grade when they complete an optional assignment. For example Algebra classes are working on A.1 last week and AFDA classes are working on AFDA.1. Completion of the optional assignment this week will add up to three units to your student's grade. 

Opportunity Grading

0-No Communication

1-Communication from parent and/or student

2-Submission of Activity

3- Above and beyond response


Update 4/13/2020: Please note that weekly enrichment/review activities have been posted to our website, under classroom files, and will also be emailed out to students and families.
As we continue to work through everything 2020 is throwing at us, please know that there are resources available to support our students and families. Please feel free to email me directly if there are any questions szupinlb@pwcs.edu.
Please note: No new work is being assigned through your mathematics course, all activities posted/emailed are to support prior learning and remediation. If you have any questions about your other online work please reach out to Mr. Romero (<RomeroIJ@pwcs.edu>).
*****4/2/2020 Please note ALL grades have been updated in Gradebook. Please login and check your grade- if you want to complete Make-up Opportunities listed below, PLEASE EMAIL ME!! **********
Be Well and Make Good Choices!

Make up Opportunities:
AFDA: Students have two options to make up missing work, They can use the Edmentum Platform or completespecific activities from the document below. As in the classroom, each student has differentiated assignments. So that I may most efficiently support your students- Please have them email me (szupinlb@pwcs.edu) to let me know what format (Edmentum /Document) the student prefers to work. I will provide student specific directions via email. 
Option 1: Edmemtum  login.edmentum.com
Option 2: Document Work  https://pwcps-my.sharepoint.com/:w:/g/personal/szupinlb_pwcs_edu/EZITmxHd2rNNo2l4-XHVMmgB6btNif4LYhXjx3UzGZZuZQ?e=eVVxos

Algebra I: Students have two options to make up missing work, They can use the Edmentum Platform or completespecific activities from the document below. As in the classroom, each student has differentiated assignments. So that I may most efficiently support your students- Please have them email me (szupinlb@pwcs.edu) to let me know what format (Edmentum / Online Work by Topic) the student prefers to work. I will provide student specific directions via email. 
Option 1: Edmemtum  login.edmentum.com

Emotional Support Resources : If any student is in need of emotional support during this stressful time, he/she/they can email studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu to receive virtual support. Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) will have counselors and other school-based mental health staff respond to any student who needs assistance. PWCS cares deeply about our students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school, and we want you to know that we are only an email away. As a reminder, this email will not be checked 24 hours a day, but it will be checked often during daytime hours each day. If you ever have an emergency situation, please reach out to a trusted family member who may be able to render immediate help.
