The school has hired more staff to address periodic quarantining of our teachers, as well as addressing the need to support in person and virtual learning. There is a big need for Subs. If you have a Bachelor Degree you could become a Substitute Teacher and help out when teachers have to stay home and quarantine, etc.
Teaching this year requires the purchase of iPads for every student and time to train teachers, faculty, students and parents on how to use the new technology such as iPads, Schoology and Power School.
With the libraries closed in schools, we provided funding to purchase e-books to support the important need for students to have access to reading material.
We are providing parents access to experts on virtual learning so they can be educated on how to support their students learning virtually.
Teachers & Faculty are receiving ongoing training on Covid-19 protocols and implementation.
This year students are not moving around between classrooms as they have in the past. Students are in the same classroom for most of the day. To help, the school is focusing on outdoor education opportunities where students can move around and still maintain social distance. We are raising money for more focused outdoor learning programs.
This is just a sample of all of the Educational needs impacting the school this year.
