what are you guys using
I haven’t heard the final choice. I don’t remember the names but one is used by Oregon’s connection academy our online school system
Connections can rot. They’re owned by Pearson.
good to know
I am curious if anyone has discussed this yet? Is this accurate?
Lol some of you are so predictable.
definitive data at this point seem sus
I’m not an epi or a virologist
I would welcome information from some of those who could explain how it’s wrong.
I have not seen any evidence up to this point to substantiate this type of theory. Which is why I am asking.
Listening to a school meeting last night one thing I 100% won’t be doing this year is allowing my son to use the school bus. We will be take him to and from.
A huge issue I have is the old virtual school system was a hot fucking mess. We would be given a full days of documents to print out and do with our kids. We had a 15-30 minute morning meeting with the teachers. A 20 minute phonics session with the teacher and outside of that teachers where available for two hours if he had issues with the work that would could log on and speak with them. This was a total disaster. I think my biggest issue is how to actually teach the lesson that it would connect with a 5 year old. Teachers have years of knowledge on how to connect with students to make this stuff make sense to a child who looks at this stuff as the toughest stuff in the world. My wife and I really struggled with this and it led to extreme frustration and blowups.
My son also really has taken a huge mental hit and really missed his friends. Still does. We are able to opt for a six week Virtual school option but I can’t imagine explaining why my son has to watch his friends be all together as he’s home. But I feel like this is the no brainer way to go. Just the mental impact it will have on him troubles me.
Our school is going to do a mock virtual day in a couple of weeks. At that point we will make a choice on staying home or sending him to into the school.
My two kids, 12 and 10, will be doing virtual. My oldest did a virtual learning lab last year and thrived. It will be an adjustment for my youngest but she is asthmatic, so it’s a no go until she improves.
Lol at thf doing his "I've seen no data" schtick like he gives a fuck.
thankfully the US is an exception to the rules, so we don't have to worry about our schools spreading COVID
as for my household, my darling children Blark and Glanders will be moved to online private schools in the cloud
What I can't understand is this, schools have had since May to start prepping for The start of the next school year. All summer they could have been coming up with comprehensive plans to get kids taught properly. Instead, it seems most of them just kicked the can and we're waiting and hoping for this to all go away. Now, we're weeks away from the start of the school year and schools are scrambling to come up with their plan. It would have cost them nothing to come up with a comprehensive plan. If you need it in the Fall you have it. If you don't need it, GREAT, the country is already back on track!
Fuck we are a dumb country.
We have a son that will be 2 in November. If his daycare was open, we would give it serious thought, but I think he would more than likely go back. It's been closed since mid March. Same for my wife's office pretty much, though they can sign up to go in one day a week to maintain distance from others. Her company is not a big office employee-wise, anyway. I have been going in the office most days at some point, usually not until the afternoon so my wife can try to have some uninterrupted work for the first half of the day. My office is small too. I work with one other person and we have an admin that comes in 2-3 days a week, and we all have plenty of space. My parents have also been watching our son once during week for a few hours, usually on Tuesdays. That has been tremendously helpful.
We've been trying to mix it up around the house by going for walks with the dog, playing outside more, reading, riding in the car, etc... He is at the age where he's getting into everything and you have to keep a good eye on him. I think he's missed the structure of school, his buddies, and his teachers. He is definitely more clingy and whiny.
Daycare had been providing pretty regular updates but they haven't in a few weeks. Based on the last email, we're not expecting it to reopen until at least mid August at this point.
The whole situation has caused some stress, but that's not unique to us. Things could always be worse. Sucks this is the situation but it kind of is what it is at this point and we're dealing with it.
This is exactly the point I was making, but I was told by duc15 that I was mistaken, so this can’t possibly be true!
You’re going to love hearing about how we’re facing another PPE shortage
I mean most doctors seem to think that, but this is all so novel, I don't think anybody knows for sure.
There are some interesting viewpoints I am finding to counter this claim that kids can’t spread the disease. For one; in most areas studied, schools were cancelled already so the question becomes, where would the kid go without the parent to become infected and be the index patient in the family?
I know if it were my family and school was cancelled I would be the one doing the shopping alone and so the primary vector for the disease to enter the family would be me. Odds of my kid getting it and spreading it to my family would be dramatically reduced.
The notion that kids can’t spread the disease is fascinating to me and doesn’t make much sense to me.
We just opted in to sending our 7 and 5 yr old. Not terribly excited about it and would prefer virtual learning or to just withdraw and home school them entirely until this is over, but neither of our jobs allow us to work continuously from home.
I think we'll at least have the flexibility to drop-off/pick-up to avoid the bus and after school care, so small victory?
We are same.
mcmaster has a 11am press conference and apparently is going to announce full openings in SC
shit sucks. i understand the strain on families and parents just want the best for their kids but this isn’t the solution.
we had 21 new cases the day we shut down and hit 2200 yesterday
so districts have to submit reopening plans to the state and they’ll only be “approved” if parents have the option for either full-time in-person instruction or full-time virtual
"Be everything to everyone."
i think we've solved it. I should go ahead and sign Glanders up for online fencing lessons
They trotted out the "we know what a negative impact uncertainty has on students' mental health" as a reason schools have to be open. Are they imagining schools won't be uncertain places this fall?
Holy shit they put masks on.
"Freedom loving South Carolinians"..."still, small voice"....yikes
These motherfuckers sound dumb as shit. "So I went on the computah, and I looked up some ahticuhls..."
we have the dumbest motherfuckers up here at the podium talking about the importance of education. so embarrassing for sc
"Aw shucks. First thing I do is check how many pages are in the book. Can't read it if it's too long heh heh."
Damn ashy larry this is wild. I think this guy pulled himself up by his bootstraps!
im so embarrassed. also pissed that hundreds of thousands of people are on edge about this and they send these fucking flunkies up to the podium to wax poetic. this isn’t helpful for anyone.
lmao I’m fitna be a hero
Idk how you haven't turned it off yet. Good to know this is about no poor rural children getting left behind because they don't have broadband though
im so happy to live in a democratic run state
“the adults will have to work harder but that’s their chosen profession and responsibility”
get fucked dude
Not my words but a Facebook friend's take:
"I cannot believe the audacity of these men, elected to lead, publicly criticizing the effectiveness of emergency remote learning by our educators, and using that as a tool to force reopening of schools while offering almost no assistance or guidance. While at the same time, completely ignoring their total lack of any decisive action to curb this virus and it's impacts which could have made all of this go away. They are literally dumping the responsibility of their failure to properly respond to a crisis on the backs of teachers, staff, and parents across our state, all the while telling you just how terrible we will fail our children if public educators can't figure it out."
When they brought up "truancy laws" last semester I cringed. We need to enforce law and order!
as they are also the first people to propose constant cuts to the educational system of their states. Fuck these leaders acting like they care about education.
My son is gonna be 2 in October, he has been in daycare throughout. We have no family and both his mom and I work in healthcare so we really don’t have any other choice. Not sure what we would do if he’s school aged, he would have to go I suppose. We try to limit exposure for ourselves and him as much as we can and hope other parents are doing the same.
we’re 50 minutes into this conference and not a single educator or healthcare professional has spoken
one of these assholes said teachers got a D- for how the spring went
catching up on this thread and this made me actually laugh out loud. Woke up my cat.
hopefully your grandson wasn't on your lap
kamala harris has locked parents up for gap years
