SDO Newsletter, March 11 Emergency Letter

11 March 2020

Hello Peralta!
In order to answer questions about Canvas, Zoom, or other questions , please join me today:

Wednesday, March 11, 2 – 4 pm via Zoom:

Phone: 1 646 876 9923 (Meeting ID: 210 466 2570)

As we enter these challenging and uncertain times, I wanted to acknowledge that:
  • People across the district are working together to figure out solutions! Don’t be afraid to ask for help 🙂!
  • How we communicate with each other is super important, especially when we think about how and what we communicate with students! (W.A.I.T is a helpful mnemonic: Why Am I Talking? or emailing…)


Here are Emergency Remote Teaching Resources from our amazing Distance Education Team:

  • Here’s a webinar for getting online quick (Fri, March 13th, 9 am)
  • I found this article on “Flattening the Curve”  that helped me understand the need for reducing opportunities for the virus to spread rapidly.

While it is NOT mandatory to move onto Canvas (there are other low-tech options), if you’d like support to move online, here are some resources:
  • I need help! I have questions! Please fill out this survey (Faculty Help Survey). We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
  • I want to help. Please fill out this survey (Faculty Volunteer Support Survey)
  • Each college is coordinating its own set of training and support systems. Please be on the look out for those locally.
Take care and don’t forget to wash your hands!
