Groton Public Schools Distance Learning Plan Spring 2020
Groton Public Schools is moving from Supplemental Learning to Distance Learning on March 30, 2020.
The purpose of supplemental learning materials was to afford students the opportunity for a continuity of learning during short term cancellations. The supplemental learning materials were intended to engage students in learning for the two weeks of closure 3/16/20 – 3/29/20; for students to work independently, without being graded.
With the reality that our schools will be closed for longer periods of time, we will be providing Distance Learning. Distance Learning is intended to serve as an alternative to learning in the schools. Distance Learning will provide the opportunity for planned teaching and learning with assessment and feedback, and provide time for students and teachers to communicate.
Groton Public Schools will engage in distance learning to recover instructional time lost due to school closures by utilizing an Online Learning Management System, and District Email in the following ways:
- PK – Grade 8 will use Google Classroom as the Learning Management System
- Grade 9 – 12 will use Schoology as the Learning Management System
