As we continue learning through a new remote instructional format we have been gathering feedback from teachers, students, and parents as well as engaging in discussions with other local schools and career centers throughout the state. We have decided to modify our schedule starting April 6 to provide a more sustainable and authentic learning experience for all students. Students will only be given assignments by teachers on specific days. For example, on Mondays a student’s math, social studies, and lab teachers will create assignments for students. On Wednesday there will be no new assignments given but teachers have the opportunity to connect with small groups to provide additional support or to communicate with parents regarding progress. The schedule has been emailed to all students and is posted on the Greene County Career Center website and the school’s Facebook page. If a student has any questions, please feel free to reach out to their teachers for further explanation.
