The Humboldt School District is making plans to educate students online over the next four weeks. That was the word at Monday's Humboldt Board of Education meeting.
“The administrative team discussed this morning on how students could take online classes. We also discussed a list of resources parents can use once we get to that point, along with providing resources for parents with special needs students,” Interim Superintendent Mike Sherwood said. “Once we provide the resources, then we have to make sure there is Internet access for all students.”
“We’ll be finding out who has Internet access and who doesn’t. How do we match those resources and specific needs? I know Greg (Wickett) is working on providing Google Classroom and resource training videos for staff to be able to post things online,” Sherwood said.
“I think we can deliver an adequate online delivery program for the interim,” Wickett said. “Teachers will probably need a day of in-servicing on how to do this before we begin.”
“I can say once you get things worked out administratively, the middle school and high school teachers will be ready to deliver,” Wickett said.
