USD 298 plans for school closing
The USD 298 Board of Education met in a special meeting Thursday, March 19, 2020 to discuss topics related to school closings and activity cancellations, a continuous learning plan for students in the district and modifications to the food service program.
Several available options were discussed in regard to a continuous learning plan. The district’s teachers have worked to find solutions for those students who do not have computer equipment and internet access at home, students who may need special instruction, and needs parents may have during the school closings.
Remote learning can probably be successful in most cases, but classes such as shop and metal working will need classroom time. Up to nine students and the teacher can be in a classroom according to the COVID-19 guidelines. Staggered classroom hours, on-line learning as it relates to both younger students and high school students and transportation to the schools were discussed in length, including sending weekly learning packets to the students’ homes. Teachers can use Google Classroom, and paras may be used as “virtual” tutors.
