Video Usage

Audio-visual media shown in class must be relevant to the curriculum being studied and appropriate for the age and maturity level of the students being taught. When watching videos, students should be actively involved in accountable work, such as taking "Cornell Notes".

In general, it is best to use short clips of videos to enhance instruction, combined with more rigorous coursework. Any time a teacher plans to show a video more than 20 minutes in length, he/she must obtain the written approval of the administrator overseeing that department. (Please use the "Video Permission Form".)

"R"-rated videos can only be shown after the teacher has written a letter to parents explaining the purpose of the video and received the written approval of all parents.
