Check-In

Check in with your teachers or Cyber Center Facilitator. These people are valuable resources and can help you access your classes, create schedules, provide resources to help you study or understand concepts and can assist you through challenging subjects or topics.

Create a Schedule

In a traditional school you will spend at least 7 hours at school a day. Consider this when managing your online workload. Make a schedule and dedicate small chunks of time to each course every day and study small amounts at a time. It will also be helpful if you make a "To-Do" list every morning so you know what you need to get done that day.

Avoid Multi-Tasking

Multi-tasking seems like an inevitable practice in the fast paced society we live in. However, focus on a single task is a valuable skill o develop and help you in life. While working on your school work, avoid using social networking, television, and other distractions.

Reach Out For Help

It is very important not to wait to ask for help. If you are struggling contact a classmate, teacher, or school administrator immediately. There are many support channels available to you and it is the school's job to make them available. Please don't wait to ask for help and the problems become compounded and harder to deal with.
