It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
This class is open to qualified IB students who have taken at least one level 2 art course and then, if space allows, to qualified students from the general student body who have also taken at least one level 2 art course (with teacher permission). In this yearlong course each student prepares for the IB Arts Examination. Taking this exam is required of each student and costs $200+. It consists of an individual art show and the production of an investigation workbook that centers on researching a chosen thesis to support the artwork and producing artwork to support the thesis. Part of the research must include studying the art of classic to contemporary artists and at least two cultures and their art. The art show is the external assessment. It is evaluated by an IB-appointed, visiting art examiner who spends a half hour talking with each student about her/his thesis and artwork. The internal assessment is the investigation workbook (IW) that is due in late March and is assessed by the IB art teacher. By the end of the year, candidates who have completed the IB Visual Arts SL will be expected to demonstrate an inter-relationship between their research and their artistic production. The IW and art projects must show the student’s journey and growth as an artist. The student may choose to study a variety of art media or specialize in one particular medium. The number of pieces in each student’s show will be discussed on an individual basis, but 12+ pieces is the usual recommendation. As this course is yearlong you must sign up for both first and second semester.
