Dear Burlington Public Schools Families,
Burlington Public Schools will be conducting a Distance Learning Pilot on May 23rd. This pilot is about testing our effectiveness in communicating assignments to students at home in case of a canceled day. The purpose of the two-week window in this Distance Learning Pilot is to allow students time to receive the proper support and services to complete the assignments within the two week window. Students in grades 6 through 12 will utilize Google Classroom for this pilot and K through 5 students will use Seesaw.
Here are some quick details about the pilot
- Students will still report to school
This is a test of our ability to communicate assignments online
Parents don’t need to be connected to Seesaw or Google Classroom. Students (and parents of younger students) can access the information by signing into the student account directly. The reason for using Seesaw for K-5 students and Classroom in grades 6-12 is to provide consistent, organized locations for students and parents to access information without having to go to several platforms or go through several emails.
BPS will review feedback about this process and this feedback will be utilized to assist the School Committee in its decision on whether to implement Distance Learning in the future.
If you have any questions or concerns, please give us your feedback here.
The Burlington Public Schools Distance Learning Committee
