During a Special Called Meeting of the Liberty County School Board, this afternoon, Superintendent Dr. Franklin proposed that the Board approve the start of school Aug. 13 utilizing virtual learning only for the time being. Dr. Perry said educators will report to work July 29 to prepare for digital education.
Assistant Superintendent for Teaching & Learning, Dr. Susan Avant said the district had been working out all the details for months to ensure that each child can learn. She said all the students and educators will be using the Canvas System, district wide. Students are expected to attend class virtually every day. She added that students are expected to complete their assignments and that grades and attendance will follow the current code of conduct.
Each student from K-12 will receive an iPAD to be able to receive and complete their assignments. She added that Educators and Administrators are expected to be in constant communication with their students and that parents should make sure students are completing their work as required.
Motion was approved by the Board.
