Midlothian Independent School District


Secondary Sample Daily Schedule

Midlothian ISD is committed to providing rigorous learning for our students participating in Virtual Learning.

Students who choose Virtual Learning will engage in daily activities that combine live teacher-led instruction along with independent learning. A structured schedule will be provided to students indicating required times for participation in approximately 3 - 4 hours of live, synchronous instruction each day. 

Each day, three-four class periods will be designated for live instruction while the other three-four class periods will be designated for independent learning activities. The periods allocated for synchronous learning will rotate every other day. For example:

  • Day 1 schedule would consist of synchronous learning for Periods 1, 3, 5, and 7, noted here as “A Day”
  • Day 2 schedule would consist of synchronous learning for Periods 2, 4, and 6 noted here as “B Day”

Students will participate in learning activities for each course every day. This schedule purposefully designates the class periods intended to engage students in synchronous learning based on a daily alternating pattern throughout the year.

Below is a sample daily schedule for secondary students at Midlothian ISD. The Virtual Learning schedule will follow the same times of the campus bell schedule for courses as Face to Face Learning

Midlothian ISD expectations for synchronous learning time:

  • Students attend class on time - per their class schedule
  • Students will dress appropriately
  • Students are ready to learn.
  • Students should have a designated, distraction-free, quiet workspace to engage in learning.
  • Students will show their face on the screen to engage with the teacher virtually during designated, daily times.
  • Students will participate in the class

Midlothian ISD expectations for asynchronous learning time:

  • Students should complete asynchronous activities assigned each day.
  • Students show proof of participation in daily virtual instruction by satisfactorily completing assigned assignments to demonstrate evidence of student learning ie. video, picture, or activities submitted as lessons and/or completing assignments. Please note, not all lessons must have an assignment, as there will be teacher discretion on the number of assignments, as they follow the MISD grading guidelines.
  • - Students and parents will communicate with the teacher when needing additional assistance, tutoring, etc.
