FAIR Quarter 4 Learning Schedule

As we begin this quarter, we will be moving to a new learning format.  We will utilizing a simultaneous instructional model that will allow our teachers to provide direct instruction to students who are (IPL) and those in (DL).  FAIR teaching staff will be using a technology device known as a PolyCam, that will allow them to move about the classroom while teaching and the camera will follow them in the live stream for DL students to view.  We are optimistic about this innovative learning model that will engage all learners together.  Here is our Phase 5 Quarter 4 Schedule.
