8th Grade University of North Carolina Core

Study Sessions and Communication 

During school hours, you will meet with your Core teachers via one of the video platforms, which is either Google Meet or Zoom. Links to those chat rooms will be available on a daily basis and easily accessible through Schoology. 

Email is the best method of contact after school. You can find the email to your respective Core teachers below this response. Please give your teacher 24-48 hours to respond to your email if it is sent outside normal school hours.

Study sessions will be every Wednesday by appointment during school hours. Schedule a time with your respective teacher via email featured below and they will send a Google Meet link to address any concerns or questions you may have.

Online Materials and Resources 

Your Core courses will function in three main platforms. Refer to their individual web pages and Schoology courses for further resources and directions. 

  1. Adams 12 Schoology: This is the website where students will do most or perhaps all of their assignments. They can type directly into Schoology, upload documents, or participate in class discussions and polls. This is also where students will access videos and Google Meet chat rooms to interact with their teachers and peers. Students will use their assigned Adams 12 school I.D. and password to log into this platform. 

  2. Google Meet: Teachers will be using this platform to engage with entire classes, small groups, and individual students to deliver instruction, take attendance, and assist with schoolwork. Students can access the link/s for Google Meet through Schoology. 

  3. Infinite Campus: Per usual, this will be the website where students and parents/legal guardians can access grades to assess performance and progress. 


Attendance will be taken every period for students throughout online learning. This will be based on students joining their Core courses in Google Meet at the start of class, which they can access through Schoology (see above). 

Online Classroom Expectations for Behavior 

While there will be no dress code during online learning, inappropriate (clothes with bad words, images, etc. on them) or minimal clothing will not be tolerated. Profanity (bad words), racial slurs, or any other derogatory language/physical gestures in any online context will not be tolerated either. In other words, expectations for behavior will remain high. 

Failure to abide by these expectations will result in being muted or blocked from online videos and posts, emails/phone calls home, and referrals to administration.
