Fall 2020 Planning
Please read this note from Enikia Ford-Morthel, Deputy Superintendent of Instruction, who is leading the teaching and learning workgroup:
As we prepare for Fall 2020, we are prioritizing Connection, Communication and Consistency. Although all students will start the school year in a distance learning format, we plan to implement a hybrid model when safety and circumstances allow. We are being creative and innovative as we think about ways to interact with students and have leveraged the feedback and input from many. We know that only through authentic partnership and true collaboration can we realize the each and every in this continued distance context. We look forward to engaging and partnering with our families and community organizations to realize this next step forward in the fall. We have been thoughtful around how to improve distance learning towards the priority areas named above including professional development and capacity building, resources for teachers, school staff and site leaders. We are also mindful of the new role that parents and caregivers are playing and are building our resources.
Technology Support for Families
With the decision that the school year will launch with online instruction, we want to remind families of available resources to support getting started with digital tools and platforms. On the Technology Resources for Families page you will find Family Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), a Youtube playlist of family technology tutorials in multiple languages, information on accessing your child’s Google login, and support for tools such as Zoom, Google Classroom, and more!
This page will continue to be updated in the coming weeks, along with our main Resources for Families page. You may also contact the Family Resource Link for assistance.
