Handbook


Handbook

This is the 2020/2021 Handbook for the 2020/2021 school year. It is in effect the entire school year.



We are coming out with a new Handbook hopefully by the end of April, for the 2021/2022+ school year. This is to showcase our belief that family is the unit of instruction at Totem. We know families learn together, and that when working together on learning tasks, everyone learns more.


Our goal is to support Totem families to enhance learning by sharing and deepening knowledge within your family unit.
 
To help with that, and tidy up a few loose ends, a few key additions to the Handbook will be:
 
  • More online resources at reduced costs
  • An online portfolio platform- Basecamp
  • Course Name determination assistance
  • Instruction & Assessment descriptions to help families choose
  • Totem Tots- a preschool approach that will offer curated resources
  • New website coming
  • Direct deposit available
  • Official report cards provided each quarter
  • No more than half of the overall allotment can be used towards one sole course
