The plans for re-opening NISA’s physical campus for face-to-face alternative learning are constantly changing. As a result, these plans will be updated as we develop new ideas, and explore new instructional opportunities.
We plan to reopen the NISA campus for regular classes on Monday, 10 August. However, if the government does not permit opening physical classes, we will continue online teaching and learning classes. Our COVID period Teaching Learning reopening plan realizes special measures and structures that are unique to the health risks. We will adapt our procedures as needed.
The reopening of NayPyiTaw International Science Academy will be guided by the following principles:
This is an exciting time for NISA as we re-imagine school, learn from the past and prepare for new academic opportunities. We look forward to working with you to accomplish these goals for the benefit of everyone.
Students with symptoms of any kind should not come to school or if at school, they will be sent home. We must adhere to this procedure more rigorously than before. Only after students have been symptom-free for 48 hours without the use of medication they will be allowed to attend again. However, in case symptoms worsen, we strongly recommend medical treatment immediately. Parents should know about local medical resources for health advice on when to consult a physician or seek emergency medical care. Students who have come into contact with a confirmed COVID19 infected person should stay at home and follow Myanmar Health Authority Instructions.
A pass from the nurse will be absolutely necessary in order to return to class.
The following expectations and procedures are intended to ensure the health safety and hygiene standards:
End of the school day is staggered and students of different levels are to be accompanied by their Homeroom teacher and Assistant teacher (if applicable) to the designated pick up points at their given specific times.
Students who are not picked up at the designated time have to gather at specified areas with their teachers-in-charge and strict social distancing rules have to be complied with.
Beginning of the day:
During the day:
End of the day:
All movement of students around and within the building is to be supervised by a teacher and adhere to the expected two meters distance. When students are moving around the building, they need to be taught the following expectations. These expectations must then be reinforced consistently by all teachers.
All students will eat snacks and lunch in the lunch area at the designated time.
NISA will use the guidelines below:
Students are allowed to play only in designated areas during break times:
This pandemic period presents a new learning situation. Our goal is to familiarize students with school routines for social/emotional/academic learning within our school environment. Lessons will provide practice for consolidating skills and will focus on new learning where possible. Lessons should enable students to independently practice the skills taught. Therefore, teachers will use teaching materials, strategies and teaching styles that are familiar to the students.
Homework assigned during adaptive learning will allow students to independently revise what has been taught in lessons.
We are very pleased to offer NISA students blended learning during this pandemic period by having physical classes or face-to-face learning for some subjects and some online classes at home.
For students who cannot attend classes on campus will be able to access similar lessons, activities, homework and assessments as their classmates who are at school. Teachers will be sending the recorded lesson videos of different subjects and modules that they need to pick –up from school every Monday of the week and to be returned every Friday and vice-versa.
Blended learning will not be similar to virtual learning when the campus was closed. Rather, it will be an opportunity for learning to take place in conjunction with what is happening in the classroom.
Classroom teachers on campus are working with physical classes. Unfortunately, they are not able to coordinate blended learning or work with students who are off-campus. We realize that students at home may be missing their classroom teachers and classmates and this is understandable.
Parents and students will be able to contact the respective homeroom teacher first, then by the respective vice-principal if there are any questions or concerns.
To prepare for COVID period learning and/or possible school closure, homeroom teachers along with co-teachers and subject teachers will create weekly online assignments to be completed at home. These assignments will be given on Fridays or any day as needed and will be posted on Class Dojo.
PE classes will maintain regular schedules but with limited class sizes. Classes will be limited to outdoor sports facilities. Any sports equipment used in classes will be thoroughly disinfected before and after every class by the PE assistant teachers. Lessons will be limited to non-contact, socially-distanced fitness activities and games. Students will be required to wash hands upon arrival and at the completion of PE classes. Hand sanitizing stations are available just outside the gym doors.
A washbasin with running water will be provided at the entrance of the Sports area. Students must wash their hands prior and after using the sports facilities.
We will not begin after school activities until we are confident that they can be implemented within health and safety guidelines. Once school activities are permitted to begin, they will follow the same guidelines and recommendations as regular classes. CCA class sizes will be limited based on the activity and the size of the available classroom or meeting area. In order to limit contact with non-staff and to prevent additional personnel from being permitted on campus, CCAs will initially only be offered by NISA faculty and staff. Outside vendors and non-staff instructors will not be permitted on campus. CCAs will include academic, art and music classes. In addition, sports CCAs will be limited to non-contact and socially-distanced activities.
Working and collaborating together will look and feel different. It is likely to be awkward and certainly will take getting used to. In addition to following the guidelines for moving around the building, please use the following guidelines:
