As schools in Oregon work to have distance learning for students in place by April 13, North Wasco County School District 21 has begun to outline what that will look like for its students. Superintendent Candy Armstrong said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that starting with The Dalles High School, each school is sending out an update to students and parents. At the high school level all courses will be delivered via Google Classroom. Classwork will be graded for credit as it would in a traditional classroom setting. Armstrong indicated teachers are reaching out to students and will be working with them to eliminate any barriers students may have in accessing and participating in the courses.
The Hood River County School District has begun to get its teachers ready for distance learning. Superintendent Sara Hahn-Huston said in a statement on the district’s website that the district’s technology department began distributing devices to secondary students Wednesday and is reaching out to families who may have barriers to Internet access. District staff will be connecting with families and students this week. Hahn-Huston indicated the district will provide more information on their distance learning plans next week.
