Purcell Superintendent Dr. Sheli McAdoo has announced the school’s state mandated Distance Learning Plan.
The Oklahoma State Department of Education ordered districts to come up with plans to educate students away from classrooms at their March 25 special meeting.
“It’s something the state requires and is something we’ve been working on all along (since schools were shuttered by the Oklahoma State Department of Education),” Dr. McAdoo said.
“It’s a plan we’ve been working on with the teachers trying to identify students with technology access, internet and devices. The plan will evolve,” Dr. McAdoo continued.
The superintendent said the plan came together with both paper and technology and is an outreach through expanded access for students.
Parents will remain in contact with teachers throughout the Distance Learning plan. It will run between April 6 and May 8.
The plan outlines:
• Grade level time expectations
• How to pick up work
• Teacher communication
• How to return student work
• How to contact school officials with questions and concerns
