SMSD News: Continuous learning

"Our goal is to keep our students, staff, and the community safe," says Shwanee Mission Superintendent Mike Fulton. "The statewide closure of school facilities is only effective if we all adhere to social distancing rules, regularly wash hands, and take other precautions as directed by health professionals."

Our Teaching and Learning team has been hard at work, imagining new ways to ensure that our more than 27,000 students are able to continue learning during this next period of time. There are many challenges to work through. How do we ensure equity in access to learning for all students? What delivery methods will be most engaging for our students? What content is most important to focus on?

Our answers to these questions will differ, based on age, subject matter, access to technology, and many other factors. We will need to personalize our learning for each child and focus on key content areas.
