Whatever decisions state education leaders make about the upcoming school year, the Grenada School District leaders have approved plans to be ready for the 2020-21 term.
The board of trustees approved several plans that should touch on all angles of operations of the district, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In what Superintendent Dr. David Daigneault described as the district’s extended school year program and summer learning program, the district will continue distance learning through June, mid-June or July.
According to Daigneault, the extended school year will focus on students who had difficulty learning the needed subjects. He said this would be for those students that would likely not have been promoted.
“We don’t know what the state will allow us to do,” Daigneault said. “Everything is up in the air, and the question is how are we going to catch up?”
Daigneault said the high point is the packet handout work done at home to keep students up to par.
“We’re already doing that,” Daigneault said. “The school district knew the importance of distance learning.”
