Tidioute Charter continues to roll out its education plan
Tidioute Community Charter School continues to roll out its COVID-19-adjusted education plan.
Chief Educational Officer Dr. Doug Allen told the Times Observer that parents picked up needed technology on Wednesday “in order for planned instruction to begin on Monday, April 20, 2020.”
“Some families without clear or reliable internet services or no internet at all were delivered or provided educational packets today as well,” Allen said. “Students will have school work assignments for a 10- or 12-day period as of Monday. The next work period will be starting on or about May 3.”
Staff will utilize Google Classroom to offer virtual offerings.
“Students receiving a packet will receive phone calls from administrators later this week and on Monday explaining how to return completed work or to seek assistance over the phone,” Allen said.
“Today was busy yet fun in a way,” Melissa Mahaney, education coordinator, said in a statement. “It is exciting to help kids start planned instruction even though we are experiencing unique situations each day.
“TCCS is ready to help kids as we can do so through phone calls or via emails with teachers. Even our talented PE teacher is excited about her work out videos.”
Any parents or guardians of TCCS students with questions are free to call the school at 484-3550, Allen said, noting information is also shared on the school’s website and Facebook pages.
He said food service would continue from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday and Wednesday.
“Graduation is being planned as a virtual graduation scheduled for Friday, May 29,” Allen said.
