The Dufur School District is getting ready to start classes in September online after the state announced its metrics for reopening school. Superintendent Jack Henderson said they had been working on a number of different scenarios to start the school year, adding one thing the Dufur district will be trying to do is educate parents on how to help oversee their child’s learning and providing guidance on how long students should be engaged in educational activities. He said all Dufur students will be registered in an online platform to help teachers guide students and hopefully help families as well. Henderson adds the district will also narrow down the means by which teachers communicate with students compared to in the spring to a single platform. The district is planning Zoom meetings to help parents understand their plans, with the first set for this Thursday at 7 p.m. The link for that meeting will be sent out on Monday.
