Remote Learning to Continue This Fall for Lansing School District
One thing is for sure, last year's school year was nothing short of chaotic. Everything during this past school year was not normal because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Most students spent their school year learning online, missing out on school activities, and all kinds of things that students enjoy during a normal school year.
Now that so many things are starting to open back up and as things start getting back to normal, you have to wonder what's going to happen this fall when students go back to school.
According to the Lansing State Journal:
Lansing School District on Tuesday announced the capital Area K-12 Online school, an online learning option available to all mid-Michigan students starting next fall. The program will allow students to learn remotely from dedicated virtual teachers while still attending electives, clubs and athletics in person.
Does this mean that students really enjoy online learning? I would say absolutely. In fact, not only is this program going to be available to Lansing School District students, it will be open to all students in mid-Michigan.
You can't help but wonder if this will be the way we do things in the upcoming future. Could it be that some day, all students will be able to take classes remotely without ever walking into a school building?
The Lansing State Journal also adds:
"We are taking a very innovative approach to online learning," said Board of Education president Gabrielle Lawrence in a press release. Our teachers will be Lansing School District teachers and they will be directly accessible to students.
