  • Students are set to work from home for a while

Vonda Ramp, head of child nutrition services, said schools and civic and nonprofit organizations have been stepping up to ensure that need is met for students who received free and reduced-price breakfasts and lunches at school. Teachers for each of the students will provide a cover sheet explaining the lessons for the week. Supt. Carol Hansen said Tuesday that schools would be reaching out to see which families have the greatest need. "I can make my own schedule for the week to complete my assignments based on what is going on in my household'".

"I'd like to thank everybody for enduring the unexpected conditions we are all facing [and] for having some flexibility and understanding as we move forward to provide a different type of learning for our students", Supt.

The largest, Tucson Unified, is now finalizing plans to have online access for all students starting next week.

Teachers will be using email, phone calls, and video meetings via Google Classroom to connect with and support their students.

Students at public high schools in Tokyo will start a new school year next month. Other ideas might include a rostered system of computers and digital devices children need to enable their study at home.

All elementary students still will be receiving reading and math packets each week, either online or in paper form for pick-up.

Rivera said school closings could extend beyond the latest shutdown order, should Department of Health data indicate that is necessary. "We have had members ring our office in tears, grateful for the outcome and the certainty it brings for them and their health and safety".

We are setting reasonable time expectations for the essential learning so we do not overwhelm families and students.

In a message to parents Monday, Interim Superintendent Jamie Christensen said teachers will likely start adjusting and learning to work in a new mode. Some record videos for students to watch, and a few do it live so students can interact and answer questions in real time. "Rather than be overwhelmed, we want them to reach out".

As schools scramble to move learning online, educators across the country fear that remote learning will deepen existing inequities.

Families with students with diverse learning needs will continue to receive support. The younger students, meanwhile, will speak individually with their students once or twice each week.

The district's Emergency Response Team is using the pandemic as an opportunity to reimagine what education looks like in the 21st Century. "If anything, we have found the silver lining in that remote learning has allowed us to truly differentiate and individualize learning for children".

While teachers naturally appreciate the value of continued learning, they also recognize the power of continued connection through voice and sight. "Learning does not have to stop". Even in Australia where many schools remain open, many parents have chosen to keep their kids home. The most recent of these saw 35 parents participate online. "We are staying in touch".

She said many teachers she had spoken to were opposed to closing schools.

Same for career technical students who may be short of requirements for certification. "But given the circumstances, the teachers are doing marvelous". Some schools are much further along the journey in preparing for children learning online without coming to school every day.

"A lot of tools the teachers have been using they have been using for a while".

"While infection rates are low in schools, that's the best place for them to be", she said.

But for Marcola School District located northeast of Springfield, class is still in session and teachers are instructing - it's just all online.

But she hasn't heard back from many, which has her anxious.
