CCHS Distance Learning
About Distance Learning
Welcome to Campbell County High School Distance Learning. This page is for students who have elected to complete their coursework from home rather than in person. We have included many resources here to guide you through the distance learning process, so please check this page when you need support and guidance.
Again, welcome to Distance Learning at CCHS. Go Cougars!
How Distance Learning Works
Keep in mind that this information only applies to Campbell County High School as other schools in the district may have different distance learning procedures. Once you have signed up for distance learning with us, you will be sent login information for Edgenuity via email. If you are new to Campbell County, TN Public Schools, you will also receive login credentials for Aspen and a school email account.
All coursework is housed in Edgenuity. This is where you will log in, access your classes, and submit all work. You will also be assigned a teacher from the high school to help monitor your progress, answer questions, and keep you on track. You will meet with this teacher every other week in Microsoft Teams as a way to stay connected and touch base with your learning progress. You can access Teams through your email account. Links to and information about each of these sites are located to the right.
Students will be enrolled in up to four online courses per semester. You are expected to complete the course within the assigned semester and move on to four additional courses in subsequent semesters. Students failing to complete or pass their courses within the allotted time frame will no longer be eligible to participate in distance learning.
Distance Learning Teachers
Each student will be assigned a CCHS teacher to help guide and support them through their online learning experience. These teachers will meet with you in Teams every two weeks to make sure things are going well and to help you with any issues. These teachers are your go-to resource for anything that may arise while completing your coursework. You will hear from them on a weekly basis and will reach out to them when you have questions or concerns. Share their contact information with your parents so that you can establish a good relationship with your teachers for a smooth online learning experience.
Each teacher will have office hours during the school day where you can reach out and connect with them. This means that they will be available to you instantly for help and feedback. If you email your teacher before 3:00 PM they should reply to you before the school day is over; however, if you email them after 3:00 PM, they may not be back in touch with you until the following day. If you email on a Friday evening, it may be Monday before they respond.
Keep this in mind as you work in your courses. There may come a time when you need immediate feedback or need your teacher to reset a quiz. If you are working during the school day and reach out before 3:00 PM, there is a better chance that you will reach them when you need them.
You will also be expected to attend a live virtual meeting every two weeks. Your teacher will be in touch about these expectations and to schedule these meetings with you. These meetings will take place in Microsoft Teams, which you can access from the link on the right.
Below is the contact information and office hours for our distance learning teachers. You will receive a communication from them so that you know to which teacher you have been assigned.
