The District’s Code of Conduct will apply equally in the virtual classroom as it does in the traditional classroom. The law of defamation is no different in the virtual classroom than in a classroom housed in a school building. Students who participate in a live video/audio conference offered by their teachers must know the expectations regarding their behavior and participation during this discourse. Below is an “Etiquette Guide” that can help with this effort. Please note that the recording, modification, or distribution of video and still images of teachers or students is not permitted by students. The administration will enforce Moreno Valley Unified Student Handbook Consequences if a student violates the above expectations. If an invited or uninvited guest exhibits disruptive behavior during a live session, the teacher will disconnect that student and report the incident to the administration.

Remote Instruction Muting:
When you enter the Google Meet/Hangout, be sure to mute yourself. When not speaking, make sure to mute yourself. This action will prevent inadvertent noises, such as coughs, rattling papers, or chair squeaks, from interrupting others.
When you have a question, type in the textbox and wait for your teacher to call on you. When you ask a question or request information, direct it to a specific individual, and allow time for slightly delayed responses because the system may experience slight delays.
When you have something to add to the discussion, but it is not your turn, use the chat feature in the right-hand corner. When possible, avoid interrupting others when they are speaking. Zoom has a voice-activated switching feature to move the camera to the active speaker automatically. Interrupting another speaker may confuse the voice activation. It is better if you have Grid View on when you have many students in a Zoom.
Wait for the teacher to call on you to unmute yourself. Only one student shall contribute/talk at a time. Establish an understanding among participants of when and how to interrupt. For example, have people use the raise hand emoji that is in the top left of the screen.
Where to Look:
Look into the camera when you are talking. Stay Attentive: Pay attention to your teacher or other students who are speaking
