Distance Learning Plan

And a new special video from staff to students!

Bryant High School staff are looking forward to resuming lessons and activities through Distance Learning on Tuesday, April 14 th. We are busy planning and can’t wait to reconnect with our students!

As we embark on Distance Learning, our number one goal is to continue providing high-quality instruction. However, we recognize the challenges our students and families may face in the upcoming weeks as we all adjust to this new teaching and learning format. Let us know how we can help as we are all in this together.  Stay #BryantStrong.

Set yourself up for a successful distance learning experience with these tips!

    Use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Like A Pro

    This is the program you'll use for virtual classes.   Mute your microphone when you're not talking.  Use the chat feature to speak with your class.  Raise your hand before talking to avoid talking over others.  Remember that this is your class.  Keep your communication on topic and kind.

    Watch this video (on Youtube) to learn more about participating in a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Virtual Class.

    Most of all...

    Be patient and flexible as we all learn in a new way together!
