Online School Service Interruptions
- School receives notice about outage (in OLS, OMS, OHS, and/or BBC)
- Email sent to all students within school (will go to Learning Coach email updating LC on the outage)
- If the disruption of service is more than 1 hour, the director/assistant administrator of the school will send a BBC call to students to inform them of the disruption and provide updates as they are provided.
- If a system-wide outage occurs during a testing window, students will be given an extension equal to the amount of time the outage occurred. Teachers will email students the extended deadline. This would only apply to USA Test Prep where our Pre-Assessments, Interim Assessments/Benchmark Tests, and Post Tests are housed.
If Class Connects within OLS/OMS/OHS are not available, teachers will email (if available) and if email is unavailable - BBC call or use another form of communication other than email to let students/ LCs know their plan of recording the class or rescheduling.
If students are unable to use email they may call their teacher if they have a question regarding their course. Extensions are listed on the syllabus which students are recommended to print at the beginning of the year.
If there is a system-wide issue with Class Connect, your teacher will contact you through email (unless OLS /OMS/OHS is interrupted), BBC call, or another method of communication to provide you with directions.
