WCSD: Phase 2 delivery goes smoothly
Phase Two has been delivered.
The second wave of educational materials out of Warren County School District was delivered online this week and by buses Thursday morning. District officials reported fewer problems with the deliveries than for Phase One, and a higher rate of pick-up.
Those who did not, for whatever reason, receive their packets may pick them up at their school buildings, according to Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Eric Mineweaser.
This phase of the continuity of education plan involves specific review and enrichment materials. The packets were designed for students by their teachers. Phase one materials, delivered early this month, were based on grade levels and not on students’ particular classes.
Another goal of the second phase is to help parents, teachers, and administrators identify any problems or barriers between students and their educational processes.
Teachers will be communicating with their students during Phase Two.
“Any online concerns, they should be reaching out to the child’s teacher or the building principal,” Mineweaser said. “Phase Two is to assist with working out these types of kinks.”
Phase Three, upon which students’ fourth grading period grades will be based, begins the week of April 27, including delivery of offline materials on April 28.
Teachers are working on application-based projects. Students who complete the projects and demonstrate the competencies targeted therein, will receive grades of 100 percent. Those who do not demonstrate the competencies will receive 59 percent. Those who do not attempt the projects will receive grades of 40 percent.
