Classroom meetings are held for all students kindergarten through 5th grade once a week with their classroom teacher and classmates! The purpose of this meeting time is to develop strong relationships with classmates and the teacher. Research shows that when students feel connected to their teachers and peers, students perform better in school. Classroom meeting times will also be used to help students catch up on skills they may be lacking or need extra support in. Students who may also need enrichment will receive it during this time as well. These meetings are also used to monitor student attendance.
Students and Learning Coaches are expected to participate in bi-weekly 1:1 check-in meetings with their classroom teacher. The purpose of these meetings is for the teacher to give feedback student's academic progress. Teachers may also conduct other classroom-based assessments to monitor student progress. Additionally, this time may be used to reteach or accelerate specific grade-level standards. These meetings are also used to monitor student attendance.
Every teacher at BVA has access to Calendly for students and Learning Coaches to set up individual appointments as needed.
